Playful, bold & fresh: Illustration students debut first issue of Laud magazine

Students pitch and design Issue 1 of Laud, a course newspaper that gives a look inside BA (Hons) Illustration at Plymouth College of Art.
<h5>Students have come together to pitch and design the first issue of ‘Laud’, a creative newspaper that goes behind-the-scenes of the <a href="">BA (Hons) Illustration</a> course at Plymouth College of Art.</h5>
<p>From alumni interviews and staff features to students, across all years, narrating their experience as emerging illustrators, the playful first issue of Laud showcases the collaborative effort of second-year students <strong><a href="">Sean Morgan</a>, <a href="">Caitlin Angell</a>, <a href="">Keri Lock</a></strong> and <strong><a href="">Jess Holloway</a></strong>, who pitched and designed Issue 1.</p> <p>It was so good that <strong><a href="">Newspaper Club</a></strong> featured it in their <strong><a href="">top 19 publications of 2019</a>.</strong> That comes as no surprise, the mini-newspaper is a delight to explore with a coterie of characters dancing between the bold and colourful pages, highlighting the fresh talent soon to enter the industry.</p> <p>Accompanying the student’s experience of the course are a handful of features on BA (Hons) Illustration alumni, established illustrators giving insights into working with the likes of <strong>LEGO</strong> and <strong>Waitrose,</strong> and travelling the UK on book tours.</p>

<p>We caught up with Lecturer &amp; Subject Leader Sam Rowe about the success of the student publication: “The launch of Laud is one of those projects that we've wanted to do for a while but finally found the capacity for. And it turned out exceptionally — the patience and effort of our students as editors, designers and art directors was incredible and they succeeded in communicating the feel of our little creative community.</p> <p>“Being able to turn over the outward expression of the course to a group of students has really paid-off; they took it seriously and (without coaching!) have spread a positive view of BA Illustration at Plymouth College of Art. It was an immense task and I have pride to match. Issue two will be in the works soon - watch this space!”</p> <p><strong><a href="">Read Laud (Issue 1) on Issuu</a>.</strong></p><ul><li><a href="">Find out more about our BA (Hons) Illustration course.</a></li><li><a href="">Sir David Attenborough congratulates student Heléna Doré on book illustrations.</a></li><li><a href="">Read about our wellbeing collaboration with Illustration student Jua O’Kane.</a></li></ul>
