Utopian postcard image

We hope you’ve enjoyed hearing more about the projects we’ve been working on. It’s fantastic to have a resource like IGNITE where we can share this more broadly for the first time. If you’re a business owner and inspired to get in touch, please do contact the course team directly for more information, either about this year’s work or potential projects for the future (Lynda Cooper: lynda.cooper@plymouth.ac.uk).  

Lynda would like to sum up with the following words:

“The students have excelled themselves this year, producing exceptional editorial and design work, and engaging fully with the more commercial aspects of publishing (including marketing and promotion).  

The  knowledge exchange  elements of the course have worked  particularly  well and feedback  from clients has been universally positive  – both  when reflecting on the quality of the work produced and the professional manner with which students conducted themselves.   

Students now have strong portfolios demonstrating their ability across a wide range of areas, and have  gained valuable practical skills to enhance their employability. It has been a pleasure to work with them all!”
