New Directory Design 2015

AOS recently presented a worthy prize to Ruth Niven. All Final year Graphic Design Students at Duncan of Jordanstone competed to design our new AOS 2015 Directory and publicity materials. Ruth's design won after a members' vote and will soon be full of our 59 members' information. Ruth's design is based around our members opening their studio doors to visitors. We hope you like it. We do!
