Author David Barker Visits

We were very excited to introduce David Barker a well-known author to our secondary students today

David Barker writes both childrens and adult books.  He talked to our students about how his book covers are designed and the importance of design choice.  We were able to show a direct link between the curriculum subjects of English and iMedia as David talked to the students about the significance of font style, colours, background and graphics and how they can have a direct influence on making a book look enticing to its audience.  Our iMedia students were able to see the importance of visualisation diagrams in the creation of graphics.  It was also a great opportunity for our KS4 iMedia students to peer mentor the younger students in graphic design.  Our thanks go to Niru, our iMedia teacher, for organising the event and for David for taking the time to meet our student community.
