  • Editorial Design - Branding Case Study
    Editorial Design - Branding Case StudyFor my MA coursework, I produced a case study on the beauty/make-up brand Urban Decay and how the brand is delivered in different countries. I designed the final piece as an editorial design with the aim of creating a spread that reflected Urban Decay's branding visually as well.

    MA Graphic DesignFalmouth University
     - Falmouth, United Kingdom
    Master of Arts degree in Graphic Design - achieved a merit. During the course of my postgraduate, I honed and advanced my skills, explored typography and deepened my understanding of visual communication as a whole, as well as refining my critical eye for design. I also undertook a significant amount of research, produced a wide range of designs and evaluated work during my degree, which was conducted entirely as a distance learner whilst continuing to work professionally throughout alongside my studies.
