Last year Adam created a set of illustrations based on the tagline 'Find your place' which saw a set of characters all waiting for a train, and each train carriage personifying a different subject of study.

Adam was invited back this year to further develop this theme alongside this years tag line 'Find your Path'. So Adam created a new gang of friends, all packing up for the first trip up to their university, along with themed static images which symbolise the different sections on how to use the guide.
