The RCA fosters experimentation, enterprise and research, accelerating highly creative individuals. This would not be possible without the support of countless individuals, organisations and foundations, to whom we offer our sincere thanks.
We would particularly like to thank our alumni who have contributed to the project:
Giulia Garbin and Jack Llewellyn (both MA Visual Communication, 2013) for the 2D design
Lucie Murtagh and Mark Stonehouse (both MA Printmaking) at Luma Studio Ltd for screenprinting the Fashion invitations
