Royal Crescent App
A group of students in Heritage and Humanities subjects teamed up with second year BA (Hons) Graphic Communication students and No.1 Royal Crescent to create an iPad app using objects on loan from Bath Royal Literary and Scientific Institution (BRLSI). The aim of the cross-disciplinary project was to produce an informative and educational app.
BA (Hons) Graphic Communication student, Rebecca Bendall said: "It was a great opportunity to work with a group of people with such different skill sets to my own. It was like a live brief and this experience has hopefully better prepared me for working for a company with real deadlines that have to be met."
