Art Direction / Bilingual Design / Copywriting / Print / Translation


Hillary Rodham Clinton has been awarded an honorary doctorate from Swansea University at a congregation in the University’s Great Hall, and Icon were given the honour of designing the VIP book for the event.

The book acts as a commemoration of the former first lady’s visit to Swansea University, an exploration of her Welsh roots, and a journey through the rich history of Swansea University. With a clear vision of the prestige and heritage that we wanted to communicate through the design, we created something that could be kept as a token of this historical event.

In addition to the VIP book, we printed 5000 copies without a slip case as a keepsake for the prospective students that visited the open day on the same day as the congregation, involving everyone in this momentous event.
