Quentin Newark, graphic design

  • University of Lincoln

The University of Lincoln Art&Design Club enjoyed a Masterclass with Quentin Newark in which they explored communication using graphic design. Quentin introduced the topic by showing examples of design that promoted either positive or negative messages – some of which were literal and straightforward, while others were more abstract, requiring greater deliberation before being understood. Quentin explained how the simple use of text and/or colour could help deliver a message or create a specific mood. After his presentation, Quentin outlined the various stages of this type of design, and the Club members began to generate individual posters. They considered a variety of themes, including environmental concerns, LGBTQ+ and politics, before creating a range of positive ideas. The members thoroughly enjoyed the session and were inspired and motivated by Quentin, who gave their work valuable feedback at the end of the Masterclass.
