End of Year Show 2019

Billy Drinkwater Graphic Communication BA (Hons) – Annual Art & Design End of Year Show 2019.

“I was working as an Engineer when I decided to return to education as I really wanted to change careers and loved Graphic Design. I particularly enjoyed the freedom to explore any creative ideas I had whilst creating my Final Major Project and mastering InDesign helped me to generate paid work and commissions whilst I was still studying.”
“The support from the tutors was excellent and their expertise and knowledge really gave me the confidence to explore my own creativity.  I particularly enjoy creating different typefaces and for my Final Major Project I created a suite of typefaces which I have made available to download.”
“I would like to continue to work as a freelance graphic designer working for a variety of organisations and I continue to explore my branding and typography as my specialism. Completing this qualification has really changed my life!”

Ashley Fenlon
Graphic Communications BA (Hons) – Annual Art & Design End of Year Show 2019.

“I returned to study whilst continuing in my role as a full-time Graphic Designer at Hyndburn Borough Council. My motivation to complete the BA (Hons) Graphic Communication was to formalise my experience with a degree to future proof my career. The best part about the course was feeling part of a creative community with my fellow students on the course and in the wider School of Art and Society.
I decided to focus my dissertation and Final Major Project surrounding the concept of perception and how people propose something as real when in fact it is fake.  I designed a platform for creating debate amongst young people and for them to be their own news anchors.
I plan on continuing my working in my role at Graphic Designer and look forward to continuing professional development to keep my skills and knowledge to a high level.”
Our Degree Show features graduating students from across art, design and media courses from animation to illustration, fashion to filmmaking, and textiles to graphic communication.
