The last 8 months have seen the Art, Design & Technology pupils of Aboyne Academy working with ARCADION to design the graphics of the company’s 2015 Offshore Europe stands and also to contribute to an advert design to be included in both the British Airways and Eastern Airways in-flight magazines.
Both of the S3 Graphics Communications classes were involved with them working closely with Phil Hynd, ARCADION Design Technician, who gave encouraging feedback on their designs whilst working to ARCADION’s branding guidelines.
The designs for the Offshore Europe 2015 stands are still being finalised however two pupils were shortlisted for the in-flight magazine advert design - James Knowles and Jamie Price. Both designs were very different and showed a flair for design and understanding of what ARCADION were looking for.
In the end it was felt the design content in James’s submission adhered best to the given specifications and, as well as appearing in the July/August British Airways Business Life in-flight magazine as the finished article, ARCADION also used the design as part of the double page advert included in the Eastern Airways summer in-flight magazine which will run from July to end of September.
James has been presented with copies of the Eastern Airways magazine, available at the time of this article, and will be provided with the British Airways magazine when copies are released. The magazine adverts will also be on display at the Aboyne Academy reception and in the schools technical department.
Well done to everyone who was involved and congratulations to James for his winning design.
