The jurists were Mr. Francois Bourgoin, Managing & Creative Director DDB and Ms. Patricia Saghbini, Managing & Creative Director, Bee design.
The presence and participation of many UCB students, their parents, faculty, professional graphic designers and aspiring artists from various reputed companies made the event noteworthy. UCB Graduates displayed their final year projects. Among the more notable design concepts from students were the re-designed visual corporate identity of Saar Cinema, Pets Home, Play Centre and Tearoom while some others designed large-scale graphic and billboard designs, as well as T- Shirts with humorous quotes and images.
The six final year students showcased their projects in front of the jury, replied to their inquiries and listened to their feedback. According to Sh. Ebrahim Al Khalifa, Executive Director of Administration & Finance, “We organize the external jury visit in UCB so that it will empower the students with creative problem solving skills and technical knowledge, that will in turn enable them to join and contribute to the exciting, dynamic and constantly evolving world of media and design”. The Graphic Design department as a whole took active role in conducting the external jury visit and proved it to be an excellent platform to exhibit their talent.
