Glen Robinson,
Senior Lecturer

Over the past three years our students’ natural curiosity has flourished, especially as they become immersed in the subject matter being designed for. This is the power of content–led graphic design – it brings purpose and meaning to communication.

Design for Life. Design for Love. Design for Publishing.

Student exhibitions

We are excited to be returning to showing our work off in London once again with our July portfolio event. This is a great opportunity for students to make industry connections and help them take the first steps into the design profession.

Live briefs

The course has particularly close links with the publishing industry and has benefitted from working on live briefs including those set by Little Brown Books and workshops with David Pearson and Office of Craig. This has provided students with opportunities and helped to build confidence in presenting to industry.
