Our Graphic Design students were recently approached by Arts Manager for the charity, Emma Carr, with the opportunity to design a mural for Frimley Park Hospital. Students were tasked with designing digital illustrations, and Lola’s vibrant landscape was chosen as the winning design:
Lola’s design is now on display at the Frimley Park Hospital Stroke Recovery Department, to uplift and improve the wellbeing of patients facing serious illnesses.
Speaking about her involvement in the project, Lola commented:
“This project was very exciting for me as it was one of my first client works, which was a fun experience. I used vector art to create more of a fantasy landscape as opposed to a realistic one, to make it more interesting to look at.
What made this experience even more special was that it has been placed in the stroke ward, so patients can see it and hopefully it can uplift them. I am thankful for this opportunity.”
This project was one of many our students have worked with the Frimley Health Trust on. Earlier this year, our Art and Design students created a therapeutic colouring book for hospital patients, and more recently they designed a range of bespoke charity Christmas cards. The cards are on sale at the Frimley Park Hospital to raise funds for Frimley Arts.
