Last week two of the igoo team Jack and Amy went back to school. Not for re-sits (although those French GCSE grades could’ve been better) but to teach the next generation the ways of the web world!
As part of a Creative Partnerships project, Jack and Amy went along to Hollingworth Business and Enterprise College in Rochdale to hold workshops in web and graphic design with a group of year 9 pupils.
The end goal of the project is to launch a website on which to showcase all the work that the Hollingworth pupils have produced. Practitioners in film production, video game creation, journalism, creative writing, sound production and radio dramas all held workshops within the school and participated in the project, so the website should be an interesting mixing pot!
In our final workshop the pupils worked on a name and brand for their project, now entitled ‘Project8’ (due to there being 8 distinct sections.) They came up with a fantastic logo and planned out the layout of their web pages. Watch this space to see more…
