Agile on the Beach were delighted to display Falmouth Students work at this years conference who have been working on a project to challenge the perspectives of the tech sector here in Cornwall.
The work is the outcome of a collaboration project between Software Cornwall and Level 2 Falmouth University BA(Hons) Graphic Design students to brand and promote Cornwall as the UK’s Silicon Valley
The short video provides an array of the work produced by students as part of their degree course as a collection of initial ideas for branding and advertising, challenging perceptions of the sector and identifying innovative and distruptive ways to help raise the awareness and image of the growing and diverse tech community in Cornwall.
Software Cornwall hope to secure funds and work collaboratively to take the project further. If you would like to collaborate or get involved with the next stages of the project please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks from our community go to Lecturer Darren Whittington for his lead on this innovative project and to the students for their brilliant and inspiring work.
