Red Nose Day has become something of a national institution since its launch in 1988. In 2011, more than £102 million was raised to transform lives. It just goes to show what a difference a Red Nose Day can make.
Bill Gosbee, Head of Creative Services of Comic Relief, adds: ‘Comic Relief’s greatest asset is its sense of humour and fun, cheeky tone of voice. We had a great meeting with the Chelsea student team and all the portfolios were pretty remarkable’.

Following his recent and inspiration lecture at Chelsea, Graphic Design Communication graduate Alex Geoffrey has received a great response to the launch of the second edition of his publication Used magazine. It’s Nice That is all about championing great creativity by publishing exciting practitioners both on their website and magazine. Used is currently featured and has received this excellent review.
‘Oversized magazines are a bit of a favourite here in the studio. We love getting our hands on a weighty publication and it’s always a pleasure to thumb through pages made of a thicker stock. Used magazine is no exception. Contained within its massive pages are some particularly engaging editorial pieces that focus on the fine line between fashion and art, plus a wealth of full-bleed fashion photography. The standout piece in this issue explores the stunningly intricate work of Nicola Samori, discussing the darkness of the painter’s work and his relationship with the Old Masters’.
