UK grad shows 2013: Kingston University

Check out the best work from Kingston University's latest batch of graphic design and photography graduates


Last week, we headed over to the Arch 402 Gallery to visit a preview of Kingston University's Work Out 2013, where its newest Graphic Design and Photography graduates showcased their best work.

With the students each exhibiting their favourite projects within the small space that was full to the brim with visitors, we didn't quite know where to look first. The exhibits varied dramatically, from wall-mounted photographs to typographic mini golf, mobile apps to a printer that can portray personality through 'handwritten' signatures.

Here are some of our favourite works from the show. Use the slideshow controls above and right to see them.
