SESSIONS COLLEGE

As I work predominantly in illustration, I had been eager to branch out into graphic design for a while. During the past few years digital illustration and visual communication have grown enormously, so I really wanted to get ahead and become a stronger designer. Having previously studied Illustration with Animation at the University of Gloucestershire, I came from a more traditional design background. During my internship in the United States, I set myself the goal of completing a Professional Certificate in Graphic Design. Less than one year later I am now working as a lead graphic designer at a marketing agency back in the UK and I am very excited to start building my career.
