Education

Bachelor of Arts (BA)

Nottingham Trent Univeristy

Sep 2015 - Jul 2018
  • Nottingham, United Kingdom
  • Fashion Communication and Promotion: This creative course mixes design and theory, focusing on the visual communication of brands, products and services across the global fashion and lifestyle industries. I developed visual communication skills across a range of creative media, including photography and styling, art direction and graphics, print and digital design, film, interactive media, 3D and retail design. I explored how brands communicate their key messages across promotional platforms such as branding, advertising, print, digital and social media, visual merchandising, retail environments, events and experimental marketing. Combining my theoretical understanding of the relationships between design codes, brand narratives and visual communication, I learnt how to generate great ideas that stand up to be tested in a business context.
