The Guardian University Guide 2017
I worked with the Guardian's design and marketing team to conceptualise and illustrate this years University Guide.
Based on the tagline 'Find Your Place' the campaign follows the journey of three students searching for and ultimately finding their place within higher education and the working world.
The three main characters can all be seen waiting at train stations. Paraphernalia at the stations like the abstracted poster in the first image allude to the final print poster which was run in the printed editions of the newspaper.
This is followed by a series of carriages which are split open to reveal popular courses inside; Art, English, Science and Maths. The carriages were implemented as animated rolling thrashers for web.
Following that is the print poster which shows the three characters arrival at their utopian vision of higher education.
The campaign was accompanied by social media assets which helped tell the story and were implemented across social media feeds.

2.3D printers can churn out complex objects that would be impossible to make with traditional manufacturing methods. But building something one layer at a time is time-consuming, and 3D printing is still too slow for mass production. California startup Carbon 3D might have the solution: it's developing a 3D printing technique that uses ultraviolet light to harden a liquid polymer into the desired shape.The technology can be up to 100 times faster than current printers.
3.Alphabet (formerly Google) will start pilot-testing its modular cellphone in 2016. Its Project Ara is developing a puzzle-like handset, in which every component – from camera to processor – can be replaced individually.
4.The US Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) is holding a competition to see if machines can be better hackers than humans. Started in June 2015, the Cyber Grand Challenge will eventually award $2 million to whoever builds a software able to defend itself from hackers, counter-attack and fix its own bugs without help from humans. The winner is due to be announced during an August 2016 event in Las Vegas: the finalists will engage in a "battle" in which each autonomous software will have to try to compromise its competitors' systems.
