printed design on guide for greater manchester gig guide

BagThing is a targeted event marketing and distribution network based in Greater Manchester. They offer physical distribution alongside online exposure for Manchester’s best gigs and shows each month.

For their December edition, BagThing collaborated with our HE Level 4 Graphic Design and Illustration students to produce the front cover of their printed package which is distributed to venues and businesses across the Greater Manchester area.

This is the second year in which the project has run, with each student from the first year of the course submitting designs to be judged by staff at BagThing.

Student Tyler Davies-Knowles was the chosen winner from a highly competitive selection of superb designs across the board. Tyler’s design has been printed on 4,000 BagThing packages which have been distributed this December.

We spoke to Tyler to see how it felt to be the worthy winner of this amazing annual collaboration.

” I really enjoyed the process of making this design and responding to a live brief for the first time. I was overjoyed to win. I’d also like to give credit to all the other designs from other students in my class, everyone did an amazing job and were all worthy winners.” – Tyler Davies-Knowles

BagThing were so impressed with our students’ designs, they plan to share them via Instagram.

“We once again had the pleasure of working with students from Stockport College students to create a special front cover for the December edition of @bagthing.

After much deliberation, Tyler Davies-Knowles @td_design17 was chosen as our very worthy winner! The standard of submissions was so high that we will be sharing all the designs with you shortly too!”

Congratulations to Tyler and all of our students who were involved in this collaboration. We can’t wait to see what our new cohort of Graphic Design and Illustration students create next December.
