GCU students put graphic design skills to test for stroke network

Nearly 20 Glasgow Caledonian University (GCU) students’ graphic designs are being assessed and judged to select a winner for the visual identity of a new international stroke prevention network, led by Dr Maggie Lawrence.

Students in year 2 of the Graphic Design for Digital Media programme were set a brief to create an identity for the network, named INSsPiRE: International Network of Stroke secondary Prevention Researchers.

The INSsPiRE network has been formed by Senior Research Fellow in stroke prevention and rehabilitation, Dr Maggie Lawrence, supported by staff from the School of Health and Life Sciences and the School of Engineering and Built Environment, Dr Elaine Duncan, Diane Joyce and Helen Buchanan.

The network, whose current membership includes researchers, clinicians and academics from a range of healthcare professions across the UK and Sweden, hopes to work collaboratively to improve health and wellbeing outcomes for stroke survivors and families around the world.

The winning visual identity submission will be chosen by representatives of the network at the UK Stroke Forum Conference, hosted by the Stroke Association, this week (November 28-30). This is the largest multidisciplinary stroke event in the UK, attracting over 1400 delegates from across the stroke care pathway.
