Graphic Design: Old grad show posters among graphic treasures on RCA blog

This autumn a fascinating exhibition will celebrate the work of the Royal College of Art’s remarkable graphics alumni. As part of the preparation for this exhibition, organisers have set up a Tumblr called GraphicsRCA on which they are posting some superb examples of work that has a connection with the school. The most interesting bits include degree show posters from the days of yore; particularly given that we are moving into graduate season now. There’s also posters for lectures, workshops and film society meetings as well as work from selected alumni. Well worth a browse as we countdown to what will be a magnificent exhibition in October.
