Nice to meet you, I’m Lili. As a curious designer of communication, I strive to promote unity through visual identities, editorial and printed matter.

GCD 2020 x Nearly

With the loss of our studio as a base for our community, the Graphic Communication Design (GCD) class of 2020 have been resilient and responsive to the current climate. We have laughed, cried and wobbled our way to each produce a body of work that is reflective of the times and of our individual identities as designers.

As our physical degree show became a distant dream and feeling dissatisfied with the digital exhibition we were offered, myself and Abbie Lilley took matters into our own hands. Setting up a team of 6, we produced a student-led graduate website and a supporting 300-page publication in only one week.

Our designed pages offer an alternative preservation of the work; a graduate catalogue for the class of 2020. Though this currently exists in a digital environment, we are asking for individuals to activate their showcase. Download, print, and pin up your spreads, for our exhibition is no longer limited to the walls of Central Saint Martins.

Myself and Abbie would like to personally thank the GCD contributors and the extremely generous team who made this project possible: Amanda Gayle and Jann Choy, who built the beautiful website. And to Olivia Alexander and Ruth Pickering, for your patience, working with us on the publication and brand identity. And of course, a special thanks to Kira Salter, for always believing in us.
