BA Graphic Design

University of the West of England, Bristol

Aug 2012 - May 2015
  • Graphic design, in its many forms, makes an increasingly powerful contribution to the cultural and economic life of contemporary society. It exists in the public domain, is an indicator of current cultural thinking and is a catalyst for social, cultural and political change. Our BA(Hons) Graphic Design explores the changing concept of graphic design and the role of the graphic designer in society and the professional world; designer as curator, author, craftsperson, editor, educator, collaborator and agitator. - UWE, Bristol How is society controlled and what are the alternatives? During my 3rd and final year at university this is the question I asked myself. My project focused around questioning social control and the impacts of this phenomenon on both society as a whole and the individual. I used a pragmatic approach to research utilising all available resources which led me to participating in a 1 month design residency in Fristaden Christiania in Copenhagen, the largest anarchical commune in Europe. This culmination of both primary and secondary research led me to creating a range of design outcomes from signage to websites and exhibitions.
