Spaeda have partnered up with Wick Farm and Strode College to deliver a creative project, challenging Strode Art and Design students to become illustrators, designing a map for the creative spaces at Wick Farm. This project encourages the students to start thinking about creative careers and what these might look like.
The project aims to get students out of their comfort zone, challenging them to become creative thinkers while meeting the needs of a client and working to a real life brief.
For the first phase of this project, the students visited Wick Farm and talked with the client to understand the site and gain inspiration to create their own map designs.
Sue Green, Art and Design Lecturer at Strode College says:
“We all had such a wonderful morning and it was so restorative to walk around the gardens…The students were buzzing with excitement on the way home and we talked about all sorts of possibilities moving forward.”
