SAPC teams with university


St Austell Printing Company (SAPC) has released its 2018 calendar which features designs from third-year illustration students.

Thousands of calendars have been created and finished in-house before being sent to SAPC’s clients both in Cornwall and across the UK.

Marketing and communications manager, Matt Bunt, said: “We tasked the students to produce illustrations for each month, plus a cover based on a particular theme.

“Over 30 students submitted illustrations, which were whittled down to the final 13. An additional design was selected to use on SAPC’s Christmas Card.”

This project is part of the third-year curriculum of the course at Falmouth University, and gives students the opportunity to work on a live project with regular feedback from Bunt and SAPC designer Becky Dibb.

Dibb said: “The concepts and the quality of the final designs were excellent and made it a very tough task to pick the final ones.

“The calendar is bursting with colour and some really original designs. There’s some very talented illustrators coming out of Falmouth University and we’re grateful for their involvement.”
