Manchester School of Art

  • Manchester, United Kingdom
  • I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Graphic Design from Manchester School of Art. The course developed my skills in layout, typography, illustration, photography, art direction, user interface design and brand identity. I experimented heavily with range of different Adobe software. The course enabled me to constantly push myself, to learn as much as possible and to better myself in every aspect. I established key skills in ‘pitching’ and communicating ideas through a variety of different projects, lectures and workshops. These skills have helped me talk about my work, communicate thoughts and confidently pitch ideas to audiences of all ages. Another attribute I learnt whilst on my studies was the importance of time management and meeting deadlines. I have benefitted from Inspirational lectures from industry professionals and award-winning studios such as Hey Studio, Kate Moross, Studio Dumbar, Designers Republic, Alan Kitching, Erik Kessels, Lord Whitney, 4creative, DR.ME, Johnathon Barnbrook, Alec Dudson (from Intern Magazine) and many more. Each had a unique approach and business discipline which enabled me to understand the importance of meeting the different needs of my audience.
