Students from Graphic Design and Illustration courses have come together to pay tribute to much loved lecturer Gary Powell who died earlier this year.
The ‘Christmas Tree’ tribute to Gary stands in the Grand Parade building where he taught. The tree is topped by one of Gary’s trademark hats.
Gary, a graphic designer, illustrator and printmaker worked at the University of Brighton since 1995 and was a much loved friend and colleague to both the Graphic Design and Illustration courses.
Gary was an award winning designer & illustrator winning numerous awards and nominations including D&AD ‘Silver Pencil, the Asian award for Illustration and the B&H First Prize Gold Pencil award for Illustration.
His work was selected for the Royal Mail’s Millennium Stamp Collection alongside 48 top image makers of Great Britain alongside Peter Blake, George Hardie and David Hockney.
