ALT-D is a collective of students whose core aim was to create an alternative 2020 online graduate showcase for the Edinburgh College of Art students. They held a gallery exhibition near the Scottish Boarders, showcased our work on Billboards in Edinburgh and created a zine sold online and now featured in the Tate Gallery's archives.

Below: A closer look into the 2-page centrefold graphic novel I designed and created for the ALT-D Zine.
Below: My illustrations featured next to an article on ALT-D. The article didn't paint our project or ethos in a very good light and saw it as a negative reaction to our Universities attempt at an online degree show. However, I believe our response was only a positive outlook on the current pandemic we were in. We were expecting a degree show, discussions with employers and prospect of a future. ALT-D was a response created from the opportunity we were given. My design of a 2 page graphic novel was to tell the story of how the collective was formed in its true image.
