Work from graphic design students at West Suffolk College in Bury St Edmunds is now on display at a popular record shop in the town.
A total of 22 students were tasked with designing tote bags and posters based on albums on Vinyl Hunter’s essential list.
The team from Vinyl Hunter, in St John’s Street, will now pick a winner – who will see their own designs sold in the shop.
William Hunter, owner of Vinyl Hunter, said: “This has been a great collaboration between us and the college, we both worked together on the idea and the student response has been amazing.”
Jodi Parker, course director, said: “The range of eras and genres of music was vast, and many of the students had never heard of the artists – so this made it a very challenging task.”
Nat Owen, graphic design student, said: “I worked on a design based on The White Stripes, I researched the band and then used my creative ideas to put together the tote bag and poster.
“We all really enjoyed the project, it felt really meaningful to work with a business on a real live project.”
