Graphics student designs nostalgic print for graduation

Lauren Jefferis, who is taking a Year in Enterprise between the second and final years of her BA Graphic Communication and Illustration degree, has worked with the University’s Creative and Print Services to put her illustration on sale as a keepsake for those graduating from the University, or to give to anyone who is proud to be a member of the Loughborough family.

Her illustration captures the quirks of life at Loughborough University and features town landmarks such as the sock man and the Carillon Tower, the Loughborough Cup, Charlie the cat, and even the socks and sliders combo which can be seen on campus no matter what the season.

The design can also be personalised to include a name and year at the bottom of the print.

Lauren said: “It feels amazing to make something that could resonate with students about their time at Loughborough.

“I have tried to pick out some of the most memorable images of life at Loughborough as the University is so much more than just a place to study. To be able to have my work sold by the University is a big honour and I wouldn't feel so confident about running my business if it wasn't for Loughborough's continued support.”

She will also be supporting her friend, Hannah, and a group of fellow Loughborough students who are running in the Amsterdam Marathon later this year to raise money for charity.

As a result, £1 from the first 50 prints sold will be donated to Mind UK.

Staff and students can buy the print online here (using your staff or student account), with prices from £17 - £32. Those who purchase a print can then collect it from Creative and Print Services at the Herbert Manzoni Building (approximately one-week turnaround).

Alternatively, you can order by phoning Creative and Print Services on 01509 222190 or emailing print@lboro.ac.uk.
