Following the success of 2017, QBE has commissioned London College of Communications students once again to fill our reception and brokers’ area with wonderful artworks on the theme of Insurance through time.

After a rigorous two rounds of pitching, 10 students were chosen to fill designated spaces. We are proud to announce the launch of "YOU ARE HERE" on Thursday 13 September, followed by a special one-off event as part of London Design Week 2018 on Friday 21 September.

The brief

Entitled "YOU ARE HERE", students were posed with the question of how insurance has shaped the years to create the moment we stand in. Each student was asked to consider a timeline of 50 years spanning either side of where they stand now. While some pieces reminisce on the growth of the industry, others provoke thought about a future with limitless possibilities.

The exhibition is a true credit to the hard work of the students. This is an especially fulfilling project for QBE to be a part of as it is actively facilitating an opportunity for students to develop their creative skills; for many of the students, this is the first time they have been commissioned to deliver a corporate project.
