Gentoo presented a live brief to FdA Graphic Design students; to develop a new design for their corporate literature, which was in line with their current branding. After a series of pitches to Gentoo, Gentoo selected a range of work from six students who met with the directors to discuss how this would be expanded upon in the future.
Simon Park, Planet Smart Technical Advisor, said: “We were very impressed with the professionalism, attitude and enthusiasm of the students. The standard of work produced was exceptional and we were presented with ideas that could be implemented in the group.”
It was a fantastic opportunity for the students to engage in real-life projects and meet the needs of a high profile client. It has opened up possible future opportunities to work with Gentoo and also allowed the students to be recognised as designers.
