In honour of the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death, second year students and staff from Middlesex’s BA Graphic Design programme have brought new life to classic lines from Shakespeare’s plays and sonnets.
Students were invited to create contemporary typographic pieces of work based on lines and even stage directions from Shakespeare’s writing. The resulting designs are now on display at the Poetry Café in London’s Covent Garden.
“Putting ourselves out there as designers and showing work that we’ve put so much work and effort into is a really great opportunity,” said second year student Sivert Mork, whose piece ‘Ophelia’ can be seen in the exhibition.
The project, which was led by Head of Visual Arts Phil Healey, Senior Lecturer Claire Lewis and Lecturer Pedro Pina, allowed students to think in new ways about centuries-old texts and how to convey their messages in a modern way.
