Through my experience at university, I have come to realise my work is centred around experimentation.
I often like to try out as many processes as I can before realising the final product. My work often start’s in an analogue format and is then realised digitally. I think it is important to have layers to a piece, and by incorporating a physical edge it allows the audience to engage and appreciate the work more. I am often influenced by my peers, learning from each-other’s skills, Design Boards such as it’s nice that are a go to for me, or just immersing myself in research of the project i’m working on.
Please tell us about your final year project
The focus for my final year project was astronomy. I came to this idea as the project I enjoyed the most from third year was a documentary brief to which I looked in the hobby of metal detecting in a video format. I enjoyed the getting to know an area of life I never would have come across in a visual way. At times it often didn’t feel like work. I got to meet people and attend events in astronomy I never would have otherwise and I enjoyed being pushed out of my comfort zone. I was also able to explore macro photography in an imaginative way which is something I really enjoy.
How have you found your course/time at Brighton?
I really have enjoyed my time at Brighton and will always be grateful for the things I have learnt here. I started a totally different designer to the designer I am leaving, but in the best way. I have learnt my strengths and my weaknesses and feel fully prepared to go out into the world of work. I love the community of the Graphic Design & Illustration course and I will always treasure that.
What are your plans after Graduation?
I am originally from South London so I plan to move back there to hopefully pursue a Graphic Design Career in the city. I am excited for the hustle and bustle and the prospect of working in a job that I am truly passionate about.
