About me

Hey, I'm Verity, and I'm a graphic designer. I’ve studied for the past few years at London College of Communication, University of the Arts London. During my studies, I’ve gained an interest in design for change with the majority of my projects having a social or political direction. I’ve also gained invaluable opportunities at university: I’ve been able to set up my own charity with a fellow student, worked commercially on international campaigns with Brompton Bicycles, designed four store windows in Covent Garden, One in Hong Kong and One in Barcelona and helped to curate an exhibition at the Cooper Hewitt Museum, NY. I enjoy working around design that has a compelling story to tell and is nearly always in the category of "design for change". I want each project to be centred in conceptual thinking, to have a different direction with a variety of approaches and; styles. I've found that if I approach a project by the parameters of thought, not the parameters of the brief, each project has its own breath and journey. Which leads to more diverse outcomes, I also always need my outcomes to be productive, to have a purpose which someone other than me could benefit from.

      • London, United Kingdom
      • BA (Hons) Graphic and Media Design is a well-respected course that builds on the rich heritage of graphic design education at London College of Communication. The teaching is innovative and encourages exploration of materials, media, and methodologies related to key subject areas, including social design, branding, information design, typographic media and communication environments. The course addresses a growing need for designers who are original and divergent thinkers who can identify, analyse and solve communication problems. Through the excellent global contacts, I had the opportunity to take a directed year out in the industry where I worked in London UK, New York NY USA and Portland OR USA.
