•    2 x Freshers Wristbands (worth £110)
•    1 x KU hoodie (worth £30)

*The Details:*
We’ll choose a submission that we think is best. If none are good enough, we won’t pick any.

We’ll pay you in full once the brief is completed, and we’ll send you a contract before the brief starts to ensure you know what to do, and that you’ll get paid.

We’ll be accepting entries until the 15th June, and we’ll need the work completed by the 1st July.

*The designs we’re looking for*
This year’s Freshers Week is totally different from what we did before. We’re blowing up what’s been done in the past. We’re putting on a huge range of unique experiences for everyone of Kingston’s students. With a huge variety of events and fun activities, we want a design that reflects how big, bright and bold this new freshers week is. We don’t want a design that focuses on alcohol, as your Freshers Week will need to appeal to all students here.

The final submission may vary — we’ll make it clear in the final brief. We’ll be looking for an A2 poster design with a festival-style layout (the line up of the week and lots of imagery. Plus, we’ll want editable files (in .ai, .psd or .afdesign), and individual assets/design elements so we can use your work and make lots of materials for everything that we’ll need.

Good luck! If you have any specific questions dm us @kingstonstudents or email
