About

The Visual Society aims to be a design community hub for those at UAL, so all are welcome! Join if you want to learn more from great speakers with a design core. 

Buy a membership now for just £5 this term to get access to all events and a copy of our bi-annual publication.

 

WHY?

Our society strives to create a diverse and supportive community for anyone who loves graphic design and would like to further their skills. Whether you are already studying on a graphic design or perhaps have developed a new interest in the subject, all are welcome to join! We want to support and enrich the students at UAL who feel they may be missing that integral community feel. Our goal is to create a student experience that is both fun and informative. We want to help you develop as a creative both in a skills sense and a networking sense. Our community will be a positive addition to your life, so why not join and see what you can achieve?

 

EVENTS

We will be hosting student led practical skills workshops, guest speakers, and social events. At the end of the term we will produce a publication including articles and designer spotlights to get our community members names out there!

Some events to look forward to include:

  • Guest speakers on a range of topics, such as publication and typography
  • Practical workshops to learn skills such as screen printing, risograph, and lino printing.
  • Technical workshops to help you learn about programs such as Photoshop, Autodesk Sketchbook, Illustrator, After Effects, CAD and Creative Programming
  • Creative workshops such as painting and life drawing
  • Socials such as a pizza parties, film nights, and quiz nights

Practical workshops will take place in the Camberwell Graphic Design studios once it is safe to do so! Also, socials will be a mixture of online and in-person events to include those who cannot return to London this year.
