Book Design / Copywriting / Translation / Bilingual Layout / Project Management / Print


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.

“We are delighted to have Mrs Clinton’s support as a champion for the human rights of children and young people. The School of Law has an international reputation for its ground-breaking work in this area, and we look forward to working with Mrs Clinton to promote and protect these rights around the world through policy, practice, advocacy and law reform.”
