On the 30th of January 2014, the Graphic Design students of UCB visited the Stamps Exhibition in Manama. Ms. Lillian Hallak, the senior Lecturer of Graphic Design Department took almost 10 students from the GRD 203 class to the 10th Stamps, Currencies and Documents Exhibition organized by theBahrain Philatelic Society.
The main purpose of the Exhibition visit was to fulfill thecourse requirement since the first project is about stamps design and toobserve and analyze the original stamps of the Kingdom of Bahrain and compare it with other countries’.
The students took advantage of the Exhibition which opened the doors to gain a practical experience which will in turn help them for their theoretical project they are working on. “As far the students were concerned, it was a rare experience for them to have an insight into the Kingdom’s History, Civilization and Development over the years through the displayed stamps”, commented Ms. Lillian Hallak, Senior Lecturer, UCB.
