Student Guide to Swansea

Your Student Guide to Swansea

Whether you are a future scientist, historian, engineer, innovator or the as-yet undecided the big move from home to university can be a daunting one. To help the army of students heading for Swansea settle into university life Icon was commissioned to produce a friendly student guide to the city.

Bespoke copy and illustrations, useful snippets and stunning photography all combined to create a pocket size publication. The booklet shared information on all the best places for students to hangout. From nightclubs to budget restaurants and Instagram-worthy scenery to epic sporting events.

For those diligent students who always read the small print we included handy Welshisms to give them an advantage - sayings such as ‘cwtch’ a cosy word for ‘cuddle’ or ‘shwmae’ the Welsh word for ”Hi, how’s it going?” – everything a new student would need to make them feel right at home.
