UCLU German Society hosts annual pre-departure meetings, allowing new and existing students the chance to meet in a German-speaking city before they arrive in London for the start of the academic year.
The 2015 cities were Berlin, Cologne/Köln, Frankfurt am Main, Freiburg im Breisgau, and Munich/München.
A project that began shortly before the 2015 UK General Election, Reece Connelly aimed to open a new platform for discussion amongst the youth, but not from those reading politics. Reece collaborated with to create a test website. Unfortunately, the project was short lived.
In its 17th year, Rare FM ran its inaugural Rare Fest. AMP Soc was asked to help reshape the marketing and image of the radio station, but given the proximity of the concert, the task of creating advertising for the RareFest fell to me. This mini-project was realised with the aid of Alex Kell, Dave Holder and Mayanne Soret from Rare FM.
A new tuition company set up by Matthew Connor Martin brings online tutoring to the fore, not just in London, but also to the UK and internationally.
Taken from the name, the icons are easy to form as a drawing. The main logo comes from the "lightbulb moment", with multiple secondary icons for the different things they do.
As a completely new Society, it was a challenge to create a wholesome identity that was both simple and informative of who we are, what we do and how we do it.
The circle was chosen as an identity of putting of stamp on things we had created, making things our own. We chose a monochrome logo, as it was clear, when comparing with other Advertising Societies in the UK, that over-usage of gradients and distracting elements posed difficulties for a Society that is meant to be capable of perfectly advertising their own society before others.
UCL School of European Languages, Culture & Society has a yearly intake of students from overseas for the length of one term, or the academic year, with one-term-students arriving at both the beginning of the year, and before the start of Term 2 in January.
As a way of welcoming those students arriving for the first time in January 2015, and welcoming back those continuing their year-abroad here in London, the School is organising an event for these students, their ‘buddies’ and the Affiliate Ambassadors.
UCLU German Society's 2015 production was Arthur Schnitzler’s Reigen - a Stück centring on the lives of ten indivuduals and their interlocking sexual relationships, with one character from each scene having a relationship with the other in the following scene.
The UCLU German Society established its football club in 2011, with the then logo being the basis for the club’s. In 2014, with the new logo in full use, the German Society Football Team also went through some slight changes.
With current agreements being made, there is a slight shift towards a more recreational rather than competitive aim for the team. However, with both options still in mind, this new logo and identity was created by me with something that would fit both scenarios.
The overarching discussion topic at the 2015 Summit was Germany, 25 Years after Reunification, with many topics ranging from Germany's present-day role as a unified nation, to an eyewitness account of the fall of the Berlin Wall.
British-Russian firm Law Firm Limited approached me to create a badge for their website to celebrate their fifteenth year of operation in the British capital.
Audrey Bardzik hosted a Sunday breakfast show at UCLU Rare FM for the 2014/15 academic year. This was mock-up design for her show that would have been used if the show continued the following year.
In the 2014/15 academic year, I was Director of Academic Events for the UCLU German Society. In addition to that role, I also produced all of the advertising for the Society.
One of the major tasks of the advertising was, for the first time in the Society's history, creating an information pack to be sent of with invitations to prominent members of the German-speaking world to speak at our Society-run conference, the German Summit.
