Edi­tor’s let­ter

Computer Arts - - Welcome - BEREN NEALE Edi­tor beren.neale@fu­turenet.com

This is­sue we cel­e­brate new tal­ent in the cre­ative in­dus­tries – proudly show­ing off cover com­pe­ti­tion win­ner and re­cent grad­u­ate David Sum’s awe­some, labyrinthine en­try, and a 29-page fea­ture of the finest de­sign and illustration grad­u­ates in the UK.

It was fun, if not a lit­tle daunt­ing, go­ing around a num­ber of grad­u­a­tion shows this year, and con­tact­ing univer­si­ties to see the grad­u­ates’ work from around the UK. Fun be­cause this year’s crop of grads are a tal­ented lot, and daunt­ing be­cause we knew we had to whit­tle the num­ber down to only a hand­ful. Start­ing on page 45 you’ll see work that’s imag­i­na­tive, play­ful, se­ri­ous, but above all quick to com­mu­ni­cate and en­gage. I’d love to hear your thoughts on our se­lec­tion, so get in touch! This seems like the per­fect time to also take a no­holds-barred look at the re­al­i­ties of grad­u­ates get­ting into the in­dus­try. Do schools pre­pare them well enough? If not, who needs to do what to change the sit­u­a­tion? I re­ally hope the fea­ture over on page 36 gives plenty to think about, but also paints a hope­ful, in­spir­ing fu­ture. That’s cer­tainly how I feel af­ter putting this is­sue to­gether!
