An Audi mural challenge for students

Graphic design learners from Bournemouth & Poole College have risen to an unusual artistic challenge to create a giant mural for a new Audi dealership.

The design, created by a team of a dozen students and two tutors, transformed the dull security hoardings shielding a £14.5m building project for the Audi auto sales and car care terminal.

The theme of the project was centred on the famous and the not so famous county landmarks including AFC Bournemouth’s Vitality Stadium, Corfe Castle, and a giant observation balloon that is used in Bournemouth Gardens.

Jane Jenkins, graphic design course leader, said: “It was an exciting challenge for our second year students. They have been committed to this work for weeks, giving up their time during the summer break to research and get the project underway. The result is quite spectacular.”
