Fleming College Graphic Design – Visual Communication students present culminating project to United Way Peterborough and District

Peterborough ON – (May 9, 2019) Students from Fleming College’s Graphic Design – Visual Communication (GDV) program presented their culminating project to leaders from The United Way of Peterborough and District, as part of the Community Client Course on Thursday, May 9. The project was designed to bring awareness to the issue of homelessness, and provided students an opportunity to partner with a community client on a design project.

“This project has offered students in our GDV program impressive experiential learning opportunities and created valuable connections for our students with our local community partners,” said Sandra Dupret, Dean, Haliburton School of Art + Design. “We are very grateful for our continued relationship and support from the United Way of Peterborough and District, and look forward to continued opportunities in the future.”

The Community Client Course is focused on beginning a project in the real world, with a real client and design problem. This year, the United Way of Peterborough and District asked students to consider creating an information campaign to bring awareness to their work outside of the formal fundraising season. The campaign focus was on the issue of homelessness and students worked to see the project through the various stages of concept development, execution, approvals and production.
