GMD students are asked to reflect on their group working experiences. In this second case study, Filip Havlena shares what he took away from the collaboration:

Despite the many challenges caused by the global pandemic, the PP unit provided us with the opportunity to test our skills in a collaborative environment and gain valuable experience for our future careers as graphic designers. More than anything, I’ve learnt the importance of a great team. Whether you are looking for someone to work with or you are being hired, in order to produce good work, it is vital to be in a highly committed and motivated team with compelling skill sets. For our industry brief, we were asked to create engaging merchandise for Full Fact – Britain’s leading, independent fact checking charity. We came up with a series of transparent clothing items. As well as being trendy and fashionable, we believe it can become a symbol for honesty, the act of being transparent and not having anything to hide.
