There’s nothing we love more than sharing the incredible work our students produce and this is one of those times when we get to do so.
The following images and designs were produced by our 3rd year Graphic Design students for their first brief of 2018. You can read more about the project directly from the lecturers below:
The first brief for the 3rd year Graphic Design students looked at Impact design, which is based on the impact that values and behaviours of human kind would have and has had on environments, society itself and economies. The students had to write their own stories deduced from a current issue but interpreted into fiction. This project therefore required that the students create a set of books, which was written, illustrated, hand bound and packaged by them reflecting life on planet Earth in the year 2018. The full exhibition can be viewed during OPEN DAY on the 3rd of March 2018.

The premier African language creative awards show, Pendorings, has just announced their finalists. We are so proud to say that four of our students were named as finalists, of the seven who had work submitted – what a great return!

One of our 1st year photography students created this video on his YouTube channel about the water crisis and drought in the Western Cape. Great research for his 1st photography project!
Nice one Jamie!

Jana Pellissier, one of our 3rd year students, recently helped create this beautiful wallpaper for The Foodbarn restaurant while interning at Room 13. It is quite aptly called ‘Ambrosia’ after the food of the gods. If you’ve ever eaten at The Foodbarn, you’ll know exactly why this makes sense!
To see more of Room 13’s beautiful design and illustration, check out their website here.

Cole Ndelu, a recent graduate of the Stellenbosch Academy has been named as a finalist at the Sony World Photography Awards! She is one of just three South Africans who have been named finalists in the competition, with the other two photographers appearing in the Open category. This makes Cole the only student from SA with a finalist placing!
Cole’s submission, Pride of the Panther, was created to meet the competition’s brief: Memories. This makes her one of just ten finalists in the student category from across the entire planet. To give you a further idea of the scope of this competition and put Cole’s achievement into perspective, the Sony World Photography Awards 2017 across all categories saw 227 596 images submitted from 183 countries. No mean feat!
As part of her placement as a finalist, Cole will be flown to London for the final judging where she stands a chance to win 30 000 Euros worth of photography equipment. Cole – we’ll be holding thumbs!
