HRSA are delighted to have been able to work with student Megan Walsh to add to her portfolio for third year Graphic Communication and Illustration by providing her a brief, creative critic and a final approval write up. We’re very happy with her work and wish her all the best in her studies. This is a message from Megan about her work: My name is Megan Walsh, I am a third year Graphic Communication and Illustration student at Loughborough University. I have created these pieces of work for my final end of year hand in. My inspiration for this project was the fact that I actually lost a horse in a road traffic collision in Feb 2015, due to a careless driver. The image of the black car is the actual vehicle that hit and killed my horse. The driver had a lucky escape with just whiplash which is amazing considering the damage caused. I really wanted to create these pieces as I believe there is just not enough effective promotional material for road safety regarding horses and riders. I found the driver that actually hit and killed my horse to have a total lack of sympathy and remorse. Which shows the uneducated ignorance that many drivers hold towards horses and riders.The posters will be featuring on our Facebook pages over the coming weeks.
