Vilde Moen-Hudson’s final project for her one-year top-up course explores the media's influence and misuse of the word hacking.

The term currently represents illegal activity and security breaches in the public eye.

Her visual book, that pictures one meaning of the term, is dominated by experimental imagery, typography, and contrasts, and contains hard-edge visual language.

She stresses that choosing a subject that would challenge her as a designer, as well as push boundaries, was really important to her.

According to Vilde, hacking is “a complex and difficult topic to convey.”

“The many possibilities and threats associated with hacking intrigued me and I wanted to capture the broad scope of this in my work,” she says in a statement.

Southampton Solent University is popular amongst Norwegians. 71 attended degree courses there last year, and 95 in 2014.

The University has mutual cooperation agreements with Kristiania University College, which has locations in Oslo, Bergen, and Trondheim, as well as Kragerø Kunstskole in eastern Norway’s Telemark County.

Most students join the Solent Norwegian Society when they attend courses. Some 300 are currently members of the Society’s Facebook page. The University currently has around 12,800 staff and students of various nationalities.

“It [Southampton Solent] is popular with Scandinavians due to word of mouth for Shipping courses, and the relationship we have with agents, partner colleges, and alumni,” staff tells The Foreigner.

The Shipping Degree is a three-year course, while most of the art design courses last for one year.

13 BA (Hons) Graphic Design students, total, received First-class honours this year.

“Our graphic design students are a highly talented group of individuals and this show demonstrated how much of a creative eye they have. Their attention to detail and passion is admirable and has resulted in these unique final year projects,” comments Paul Shakespeare, course leader for graphic design.
