Following a design brief
Competing against your classmates
RSA Academies pupils from Arrow Vale RSA Academy, Whitley Academy and RSA Academy in Tipton were set the challenge of designing a lapel badge for their Principal. Initiated by RSA Fellows, Bill Good and Patrick Fuller, students participated in a series of creative workshops and went on a tour of Weston Beamor‘s workspace in Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter. They completed a design of a prototype and gave a presentation to a judging panel at the end of June 2014. Each school worked with a student from Birmingham Institute of Art and Design (BIAD) as a mentor to help them with the design process.
