Hollywood Opens its Doors to Bromsgrove School Graphic Design Students

11.04.12

Fifteen Graphic design Students, aged between 16 and 18, visited Hollywood Monster for a tour of the facility.

The students are currently studying graphic design in sixth form at AS and A level at Bromsgrove School, which is acclaimed to be one of the finest independent schools in the country, and is listed within the top ten (sometimes top five) of all British coeducational boarding/day schools.

Emma Densem, head of Design and Technology, chose HM because of their ability to showcase desk top graphic design through to cutting edge wide format production technology and complementary signmaking under one roof.

During the visit, the students witnessed the wide range of skill sets within the business, from conceptual design through to completion. They received demonstrations on the variations of machinery and substrates used within the business, including vinyl plotting and printing at 1.5m wide using the very latest water based latex printing inks, 3m UV flat bed printing machines to include white ink technology, our 3m and 5m wide roll to roll machines and finally the computer aided finishing equipment.

Tim Andrews, Managing Director of Hollywood Monster welcomed the students to Hollywood Monster and explained that school links are vitally important to the business, Having established what was then Hollywood Signs with his dad in the attic of his parents home, Tim understands how challenging it can be to follow your dream, and actively encourages working partnerships with creative students especially in the current economic climate. He believes that it is a tough world out there for young people trying to get a foothold in their chosen career and therefore offers students work experience opportunities and the chance to get involved in commercial projects to give them the edge when applying for jobs in the sector.
