The On Exhibition
BA (Hons) Graphic Design  — Swansea College of Art 2019

Welcome to On Exhibition, a celebration of graphic design work by twenty five graduating students of BA (Hons) Graphic Design, Swansea College of Art.




From the students:

On is a celebration of the BA (Hons) Graphic Design class of 2019. This exhibition proudly represents the hard work of all twenty five graduates. Our theme is inspired by the ideas and concepts of us as students which culminates in twenty five individual lightbulbs. The lightbulbs work together effectively as a group and as a design, yet they also stand boldly as individuals, like us; each with our own unique style. On represents our evolvement and progression, as we move forward from students to designers; the end of a truly wonderful era.

Since September 2016, we feel that each individual has refined their own design style and managed to develop a professional outlook and work ethic. We answer problems productively with design solutions and are able to think outside the box. The last three years since joining Swansea College of Art have proved both testing and rewarding to us as students but we are confident that our work is a proud retrospective of our development and the invaluable teaching from our lecturers.

We believe that the diversity of work presented in On, portrays our on-going advancement and professional ambitions as we look to the future. We have worked together as a group successfully, both supporting and pushing one another to do better. We truly believe that the outcome of our experience is reflected in our maturity and sense of ambition which will help us to stand strong as professional designers in our future.

From the lecturers:

On. On? Why On? Come on. Switch on. Three years of study. A lot has gone on. It's been hands on. We've shed some light on. You've been quick to catch on. What are they on about? On paper. On screen. Off on tangents. So many 'ons'.

On the right track now. It's coming on. On purpose. Bang on. On a roll. Firing on all cylinders and on a mission. But hang on. Have you tried switching it off and back on? The show must go on. Jog on. On the other hand. Let's reflect on.

So bring it on. Don't put it on hold. What's on the horizon? Whatever you embark on, maybe it'll catch on. Go on then. You'll be gone, but we'll be looking on, keeping an eye on. Never give up on. Keep on keeping on. You're all ready to shine…On.
