Client Name: 

 

The Royal National College for the Blind (RNC)

The brief:

To create artwork, to be exhibited in the RNC building, that helps visitors of the college further understand different types of visual impairments (VI)

World Illustrations Awards - Shortlist Artist - Alice Combe
The solution:

 

Working directly with the RNC, I conducted in depth primary research by attending meetings, participating in workshops, and conducting interviews with staff and students of the college, that have differing VI.

From this, I created a series of portraits based on three interviews with members of the college: Lennie, Kerry and Rich.

For each person, I created one portrait of them in the way I see them, and one portrait of how they see themselves (based on their description of their sight during their interviews).

The series was exhibited in the RNC to give visitors and members of the college a better understanding of VI.

The project was later shortlisted for the 2019 World Illustration Awards, as part of the research category.
