Baseline magazine and UCA
17 year collaboration
The close working relationship between the University for the Creative Arts (UCA), Maidstone and the international typographics magazine Baseline is the subject of an exciting new exhibition.
In the last 17 years Baseline has employed 20 students and graduates from UCA Maidstone’s Graphic Design: Visual Communication and Illustration courses.
Baseline’s editor and art director, Hans Reichert, said: “The relationship with UCA Maidstone has been hugely beneficial. We have worked with some incredibly talented and skilled people over the years and their contribution to the editorial design and layout of the magazine has been invaluable. During their stay at Baseline the students experienced first hand contact with our high profile contributors such a Arnold Schwartzman RDI OBE, Alan Fletcher RDI AGI, Adrian Frutiger AGI, Ken Garland, David Gentleman RDI AGI, Ivan Chermayeff AGI, David Carson AGI, Neville Brody, Sir Terence Conran and best selling author Steven Heller.”
“We wanted to celebrate this collaboration by putting on an exhibition of the work that has been created over the years.”
The exhibition, entitled ‘Baseline/UCA, students and graduates: 17year collaboration’, will take place in the George Rodger Gallery at UCA Maidstone from 10 October to 4 November. It will be free of charge and open to the public.
Hans, who is himself one of UCA’s honorary graduates, added: “There will be a diverse range of work on display, including some striking covers, posters layout and web designs.”
