University Of Northampton
Graphic Communication BA : Final Major Project
Date: 2012
The University of Northampton's Community Centre For Volunteering was a busy department catering for students and staff to engage with community partners to undertake community projects.
This was a way for the students to utilise their skills, influence their career choices, build self esteem and confidence. The main message for students to understand was that the centre offered students a way to build their skills for life. The problem was that students were not engaging with the centre so I proposed a need for a re-brand to transform the services
CFCV as a 'Hub' or centre-point where Student volunteers and staff engage digitally or physically to enhance the whole experience.
