Education

University Centre Doncaster

BA (Hons) Graphic Design, 2:1

I applied myself to degree-level study immediately after finishing my A-Levels at sixth form, so I was rather inexperienced to begin with. Despite this, I developed myself both as an academic and a designer, graduating as a fresh, young creative with a well-considered design process, strong theoretical knowledge and wide awareness of the design industry.
