Stu­dent puts his de­signs on the map

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

A GRAPHIC de­sign stu­dent has cre­ated art­work that will be dis­played in fire sta­tions through­out Lon­don.

Amer­sham and Wy­combe col­lege stu­dent, Tom Ge­orge, 18, has cre­ated a ty­po­graphic map of Lon­don that will be in­stalled in 10 new fire sta­tions through­out the cap­i­tal.

Tom said: “I love ty­pog­ra­phy and pro­duced a hand drawn ty­po­graphic map of South East Asia for my fi­nal first year pro­ject.

“This inspired me to go a step fur­ther and re­peat the de­sign with a fo­cus on Lon­don.

“I pro­duced the art­work on com­puter to give it a more or­dered, pro­fes­sional ap­pear­ance.

“All of the bor­oughs are rep­re­sented ty­po­graph­i­cally and I have kept their shape and size so that the map re­mains ac­cu­rate and to scale.

“The lo­ca­tion of each fire sta­tion is high­lighted on the 10 in­di­vid­ual maps. It was great to see my work on the wall, it gave me a real buzz,”

The art­work came about when Tom was in­vited into the fire brigade’s media and de­sign head­quar­ters on work ex­pe­ri­ence.
