SELECT YOUR NETWORK* is a Visual Communications 2nd year module that I run at Dublin School of Creative Arts (DIT). Students working in teams or individually are asked to consider how they receive information, how messages are constructed through journalism, books, newspapers, tv, social media, and to identify urgent issues that they wish to communicate. While the primary output of the project is digital, for the 1st edition we produced a zine to collect some of their thoughts, a page per project, with 18 projects in total. Shown here is work by: Ruifeng Wang | Yuwen Xing; Raha Jamal | Phoebe Sheridan; Nora Rabb | Shakila Sekandry; Nadia Dzagmaidze | Laura Ganter; Peter Keane | Zoe O’Byrne; Joana Ferreira | Eva Martin; Jennifer Carey | Lisa O’Brien | Saoirse Ryan; Sarah Sullivan | Jake Skelly; Hannah Monaghan | Amy Tyrell; Cliona Bray | Princess O’Connor.
* The title is borrowed from and tribute to SELECT YOUR NETWORK, a self-published poster by P. Scott Makela made while studying at Cranbrook Academy of Art, 1990
