The Final Word

The Final Word accompanied the Royal College of Art’s graduate show and marked the change in leadership of the RCA’s Communication Art and Design Department — from Dan Fern to Neville Brody.

Rather than producing another conventional catalogue of graduates’ work we invited students as well as external artists, designers, illustrators, RCA alumni, and tutors to respond to three topics: Fact and Fiction, The Value of Things and New Models for Publishing.

Instead of replicating the work of the students in the exhibition, this publication represents the ongoing discussions, ideas, research and dissertations that have informed them.
