Today sees the opening of a major new exhibition which reveals the rich history of graphic design at the Royal College of Art.

‘GraphicsRCA: Fifty Years’ illustrates how the RCA has been at the forefront of all major developments in graphic communication for the past half century.

The exhibition features original, rarely seen works from the RCA archive, including designs made at the College by RCA alumni who have gone on to become leading practitioners.

Other exhibits include RCA Film Society Posters, stamps commissioned for the Royal Mail, the infamous student magazine Ark, typographic experiments, the rise of interest amongst students and staff in social issues such as sustainability and consumerism, and early examples from pioneers of digital design and print.
