Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
University College (UC) is the founding college of the University of Toronto. We are a community built on a long history of non-sectarian education and research that challenges and prepares students to engage in the wider world.
We produce a bi-annual alumni magazine. The UC Alumni Magazine is produced for College alumni and a broader U of T audience. It informs of ongoing events, accomplishments, research, and education programs and opportunities at the College.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
We want an illustration designed for the front cover of our Fall 2018 UC Alumni Magazine. The theme is experiential education. The main article for the issue is about experiential opportunities offered to our students at the College. Students take their education out into the world, putting theory to practice in real world situations.
We would like the illustration for the front cover to be a downtown Toronto street scene that includes iconic monuments (CN Tower, Rogers Centre, U of T, University College at U of T, streetcars, etc), with a desk sitting in the middle of the road or middle of the picture; the idea being students are taking their studies out into the world and getting hands-on experience.
