All the best projects start with a blank canvas

blank_canvas_01Taking a cue from the Royal College of Art’s annual Secret Postcard exhibition, students at Ravensbourne College of Art and Design have come up with an equally  inspired way of funding their degree show. Short of funds, but rich in ideas, the students have clubbed together and bought a number of second-hand pieces of bric-a-brac (above) from various charity shops and then sent them to a number of their favourite illustrators and designers to be re-designed.

The list of designers is impressive in itself, including the likes of Jonathan Barnbrook, Michael Beirut, Paula Scher, Airside, NMo Design, David Carson and Kozyndan and many more. What’s more, most of the designers seem to have acquiesced with the request and the resulting re-designed items will be auctioned at the Vibe Bar in Brick Lane in London on April 30.
