“You’re braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.”– Winnie the Pooh
The past three years of study helped
me grow, not only as a designer, but as a
person. I have been able to develop my
skills and understanding to the maze that
is Graphic Design.
Purpose and meaning is, and always shall be at the forefront of my design. Being able to impact an audience with my work drives me to constantly push myself to new limits. Personal favourite clients for me have been The National Archives, where I developed a worksheet design to be used across schools; University of Worcester in which I created a mental health booklet to assist tutors in guiding students in times of crisis, as well as Fibromyalgia Action UK, a charity close to my heart, who I have completely rebranded as part of my dissertation and will continue to work on past graduation.
The highlight of my time at University is undoubtedly the Semester I spent in Darwin, Australia as part of the Study Abroad Programme. During this experience I was able to explore how different cultures use Graphic Design as a tool of communication as well as how the actual definition of Graphic Design changes throughout different cultures. Travel and adventure is certainly something that I would love to implement into my future career within Graphic Design.
