 ‘Studio22’ at Runshaw College

Do you have a business design task or problem that would benefit from fresh eyes and creative talent? Access our student talent in the form of a live brief. ‘Studio22’ at Runshaw College is a Graphic Design studio where students work on real-life design projects, alongside a ‘client’, experiencing the world of work. 

How do you get involved?  
You specify an activity, project, task or competition based on your needs and expectations, we then agree deliverables that students present to you. Live Briefs span a wide range of subjects, from creative design, computing, construction, charity organisations, to psychology, law and finance, life sciences and many more. They can take many forms - these are just a few examples:

  • A series of social media advertisements to raise the profile of your company.
  • A promotional campaign for a fundraising event.
  • The creation of a new company logo and branding.
  • Creating a company newsletter.
  • A company marketing brochure.
  • Posters and flyers to promote a new product or service.
