Hello from a very wet and rainy Lincoln!

Today has been pretty full on – lots of different things here and there, confirming that every day really is different in the Outreach Team. Creativity has been a big part of the day – we’ve been working on posters for the upcoming UCAS fair, promoting our next Open Day.

Our goal is to create 30 different posters, which when put into 3 sets will tell some form of story about university life & Lincoln. Choosing images, deciding on font & colour schemes was a task in itself and took us longer than expected! Students will need a reason to look at these posters & that’s why they need to be just right.

I’ve always said I wanted a job where I was met with something different each day and this is exactly what has happened. In just 7 weeks I have been able to get hands on with a huge variety of stuff  – this week has been no exception. Continue reading
