Media Space: Pan-London Gifted and Talented Summer School
During the summer students from across London came together at the London College of Communication to design and create film, surface design and digital media products under the International Year of Astronomy brief.
Students worked alongside film-makers, digital media specialist and surface designers to create a range of products including tights, oyster-card wallets, t-shirts, hoodies, bags, scarves, as well as flash media presentations and short films.
Students’ work was showcased at the prestigious Clyde Auditorium in Glasgow as part of the International Astronautical Congress.
