DESIGNS by students from Leamington highlighting disability issues could soon be seen
in London’s underground stations and at bus stops in the capital.
Katie Jones, Riannon Grimsley and Olivia Krawczyk – graphic design and photography students from Royal Leamington Spa College – created six posters to educate, inform and spark conversation around sex and people with disabilities.
The trio presented their designs to charity Enhance The UK – which aims to change the way people view disability. Its global campaign ‘Undressing Disability’ looks to raise standards in sexual health and sexual awareness for people with disabilities.
And the charity’s founder and CEO Jennie Williams, was so impressed with their work the charity is interested in working with the students – with the potential their posters could be used on London’s transport network.
Katie Jones, from Leamington, designed posters around breaking taboos and projecting the statement that people with disability want to have sex.
Riannon, from Wellesbourne, produced designs which educated people on having a relationship with someone with a disability.
While Olivia, from Daventry, saw her work focus on dating, online dating and giving people with disabilities more confidence in those environments.
Ms Williams said: “The students were so creative and myself and my team were so impressed with their work. We are currently trying to run a transport poster campaign using their ideas.
“If we are successful in getting the funding for this campaign, we will most certainly use students to work with us on this as paid work.”
