Students preparing for the Barbados Community College Graphic Design Portfolio were able to create beautiful works of arts through a donation of paints.

For the third year running, the paints company in its support for youth and the arts, partnered with the Design Unit at the college and donated over 25 gallons of paint.

The annual showcase of the Bachelor of Arts Degree in Graphic Design Portfolio at the BCC was held recently at the Grande Salle of the Central Bank of Barbados.

It was uniquely entitled #nofilter, which alluded to a generation of social media and information highway enthusiasts. Students explored concept and media through a variety of visual styles that reflected their personal and professional growth as designers.

Visitors to the Grand Salle witnessed a range of areas, including product development – skateboard graphics, toy design and the use of recyclable materials.
