'Speed Dating' - 23 March 2015
Charlie has been working on his final year Major Project for his honours degree in Graphic Design at Napier University. His project is to re-imagine the elderly in Scotland and create a new identity for them as they are constantly the subject of stereotyping and ageist attitudes in both design and society as a whole.
Charlie previously attended North Berwick High School and he has been working with a class of High School students for a number of months. The research he gained from them has been eye opening. Since then he has been using this research to create a number of Graphic outcomes.
His project reached the point when he held an event at The North Berwick Day Centre where young people met elderly people and shared knowledge and advice in a 'speed dating' format.
