AINA-SHODIPE

Web – www.rnadesignblog.wordpress.com Email – rnagraphicdesigns@gmail.com

I study graphic design but work in finance. I love typography but focus on print work. I’ve done work experience in a pharmacy but stick to freelancing at home. I’m a photographer, blogger, traveller and videographer for fun. You may say I’m unfocused, I’d say I’m experienced. I do what I love and explore my interests. Above all graphic design remains the common denominator, and that’s why I’ve studied it.

ALARA

Web – www.alaraadrian.com Email – alaraadrian@gmail.com Phone – 07857 885 265

Passionate and never short of ideas and solutions, that’s me. I know what’s being asked of me in the modern landscape that is quickly changing. People want their information beautifully presented and in a manageable format. I have been honing my skills; learning how best to answer these demands. My style is clean, current and eye-catching. My attitude is positive and optimistic and my story is just getting started.

Web – www.evalenkea.wixsite.com/mysite Email – evalenke_a@hotmail.com Phone – 07802 731 585

As a designer I am interested in creating works that explore the notions of morality and gender in the consumption-obsessed context of the 21st century. I prefer to let the concept of my work spontaneously unveil in the creative process and quite enjoy experimenting with colourways to see how they can affect meaning. I find inspiration in eclectic artists from various disciplines and especially like to draw upon Wes Anderson and Vivienne Westwood.

BACON

Web – www.oliverbacon.com Email – design@oliverbacon.com Phone – 07503 411 898

Successful graphic design motivates, persuades and steers people to take certain actions in their everyday lives. With this powerful ability comes an important responsibility within the world; the graphic designer is a catalyst for global change. My ultimate goal in the future is to use my creativity to advocate ethical and sustainable companies and use my creative skills to represent organisations making positive change in the world.

Fresh to me means contemporary and modern. Design has no limit, therefore exploring different areas has become my way to realising what I want to pursue. Fashion communication has become my forte, understanding how fashion can be communicated and promoted creatively through different media. I have a keen interest for all things fashion and marketing and am aware of the latest developments, currently broadening my skills in branding, trend forecasting and styling.

I’m a multi-disciplined, enthusiastic and imaginative Graphic Designer, from London. I love creating clean design whilst keeping it effective and creating impact.

C A M PBEL L

Web –  www.Letoyenne.tumblr.com Email – Toyinne_leah@hotmail.co.uk

Design for me has always been a way of expressing myself, creating is something I enjoy doing; I’ve always wanted to integrate business and design plus I see myself as somewhat of a businesswoman *dusts shoulders*. Therefore, going out into the working world, I am looking for a career in advertising/marketing and eventually a creative director position. I aim to retain my creativity whilst also making executive decisions.

C A R T W R I G HT

Web – www.behance.net/gemcdesignc7c2 Email – GemCDesigns@hotmail.com Phone – 07445 878 646

When designing I try to look at a piece of work from a different perspective and challenge myself to experiment with a range of unique ideas. I do this by using unconventional materials and techniques to produce bespoke work. These methods create work that ranges from computer designs to physical design objects. I think design should be aesthetically pleasing, which is what I aim to create.

CHAN

Web – www.chloeechann.com Email – chloeechan@live.hk Phone – 07851 318 438

I’m always intrigued by how broad the subject is. There is so much I have learned but also so much to learn. I am very much into photography and like to incorporate it in my work when possible. I am interested in black & white photography, minimalism, typography, and Scandinavian design.

CH E N

Web – www.biwenchen.wixsite.com/digital-portfolio Email – biwenchen@hotmail.com

I enjoy focusing my skills towards branding, typography, editorial projects and print design. Experience of various briefs and live projects has brought out more of my creative side. I have learned the values of team work, meeting deadlines, working on my own initiative, and about the various graphic programmes used such as InDesign, Photoshop and Illustrator.

Hi I’m Thomas, better known as Tom. I love waking up early and making the most of the day. I have a strong eye for detail which is shown across all aspects of my work. I enjoy all areas of design but have a strong interest in UI, web and app design. I keep myself fresh by partaking in fitness and getting my daily dose of cute cats online.

COLLINS

Web – www.thomas-collins.co.uk Email – hello@thomas-collins.co.uk

I have a natural ability to produce concept with meaning. I pride myself on making my designs more of an experience rather than just beautiful to look at, and instead give them background, a story – something vital to audience interaction and engagement in contemporary design. This is the type of work that build brands, strengthens campaigns and overall what makes my designs a step above the rest.

D E VS I

Web – www.isherdevsi96.wixsite.com/graphicdesign Email – isherdevsi96@gmail.com Phone – 07841 516 798

I would describe myself as a ‘bubbly,’ smiley and generous person. This reflects in my design work. It is fresh and contemporary, which is important in the graphic design industry because keeping up with trends is a crucial to me. Along with graphic design, photography is something I’m passionate about. Having a career that involves my hobbies is what motivates me and this is what makes me unique and fresh.

Hey there, I’m Jordan and the first thing you notice about me is my hair. And let me tell you it has been a difficult journey, but four years ago, I fully embraced it and with some good ol’ TLC, I got it to this lusciousness. Connection between my hair and design? People will want to stop, stare and may even want to have a touch.

34


FLEEMING

Web – www.joshfleemingdesign.co.uk Email – joshfleeming@gmail.com Phone – 07500 400 991

I have a unique style that is bold, vibrant and visually eye catching through my choice of contrasting colours, font selection and strong imagery. I have developed a systematic approach that will guarantee professionalism and quality outcomes, for any brief I undertake. I am always staying current and look forwards when it comes to design to stay relevant and to help futureproof much of my work.

GA BR I E L L A

Web – www.christiegabriella.wix.com/portfolio Email – christiegabriella@yahoo.com Phone – 07456 458 941

I always keep myself fresh by trying something I’ve never experienced before and I try to apply it to my design. Doing something different makes me realise that sometimes, even mistakes turn out to be awesome. The world needs someone fresh so make sure you’re one of them!

38


GENEVER

Web – www.gennydesigns.co.uk Email – geneverdesign@gmail.com

I aim for socially responsible design – I believe that a combination of aesthetics and ethics are what makes design great. Campaigning is where my talents shine; whether it is through advertising or event planning. I recently started hand lettering and calligraphy on the side of my graphics work, and there is probably a 90% chance that I’ll be watching Criminal Minds too.

HAT WIB

Email – shafikih@gmail.com Phone – 07510 765 189

I’m a creative designer that is always designing things, drawing or taking photographs wherever I am, I think outside the box maybe too much, but when focused I produce amazing work that gives goosebumps of excitement. Working with me is also fun - having a laugh while we all get lost in imagination, coming up with ideas that really blow your mind and making it happen.

42


HINES

Web – www.bhines.co.uk Email – hello@bhines.co.uk Phone – 07930 242 149

I love exploring the new and feel that it’s something that has really made me the person and designer I am today. I find it rewarding to constantly push myself out of my comfort zone through learning new processes, unlocking new skills, and venturing into exciting new environments. I try my best for my work to meet my highest standards and I hope it meets yours too. Enjoy!

I am a creative designer with an inspired mind. In 2015, I took a yearlong placement to gain work experience, understand the design industry and build up my fundamentals so that I could produce professional and unique design.

For years now graphic design has been an obvious choice for me: I have been drawing and painting as long as I can remember, I had my first website when I was 9 and a few years later I started playing around with Photoshop. When I was younger I wanted to create things that looked cool, but now after years of learning I enjoy the challenge of creating designs that work and look good.

HULSE

Web – www.behance.net/CurtisHulse Phone – 07939 661 501

I love graphic design. I would say that my main skill is the ability to move forward with the times. Over the years graphic design has changed into what it is today, through the introduction of software. It is forever adjusting and evolving. I love to learn different things whether design related or information into specific areas that could be useful to me as a graphic designer in the future.

Hello! I’m Ally. I’m all about keeping things interesting as a practitioner and developing new and better ways to engage people through advertising and marketing. Clean, minimal, straightforward and a keen eye for detail are strong aspects in all my designs. Being Ally is being able to have a laugh and keeping a structured mind. What keeps me fresh as a daisy, is a brew and a chocolate biscuit.

IN G RAM

Web – www.decdes.tumblr.com Email – declaningram95@live.co.uk Phone – 07889 239 871

Film and television influence my life, allowing a wider perspective. As times change everything adapts - this is how I approach my work, aiming to keep it fresh and focused but also seeing what’s been done before. For instance, when a plot is used in a film and you can see what’s coming from a mile away, I want to ensure that my work is never received this way.

54


J E S S OP

Web – www.chloejessopdesign.co.uk Email – chloejessopdesign@gmail.com Phone – 07793 416 870

As someone who is interested in creating typographic solutions, I enjoy experimenting with custom typography to bring a fresh look to a logo design. I consider myself a young designer committed to producing the best possible outcome in response to any brief, however I create my best concepts when consistently supplied with biscuits to dip in tea.

Stepping towards the fast-changing design industry, I believe characteristics of myself such as being open-minded, creative and capable to carry out the unimaginable will play a vital role in being a successful graphic designer. I am from Hong Kong and the difference in background and cultures is what brings me new perspectives and fresh approaches to my design.

I’m a motivated individual who is focused primarily on user interface and digital design but also enjoys exploring other fields such as illustration. For me "fresh" is about being aware of current trends while also being creative and exciting. This ensures that I am able to work to a high standard when tackling projects, whether it be in the form of a website, app or social campaign.

KO M O R OW S KA

Web – www.simplypati.co.uk Email – simplypati@hotmail.com Phone – 07727 414 029

My favourite thing about graphic design is that it doesn’t define exactly what direction I can go into. I am passionate about book cover design and illustration. My goal is to work in a studio where I can not only design book covers but also illustrate them. I enjoy hand-rendering illustrations, but I’m always learning new techniques and keen to experiment with design in different formats.

62


K U R NI AWAN

Web – www.melinathania.wixsite.com/portfolio Email – melina_gao@hotmail.com Phone – 07949 486 544

I have found not only strength and character through design, but also my personality. I’m extremely interested in how people engage and interact with design. Therefore, my designs aspire to engage with the community and stimulate human-art interactions, rather than solely to meet individuals' demands.

Hey there! I’m a lost kid trying to find my path in the design industry while exploring the world. I explore everything: graphic design, fine art, illustration, photography, film cameras, oil paint, books, waving steam coming from my coffee cup. This keeps my mind "fresh" all the time. With new ideas bubbling in my head, I combine fine art and digital art and turn it into innovative pieces of design.

I’m a fresh designer with a keen interest in print design. I like to follow and keep up with the latest trainer trends and new lines of clothing.

MILLER

Web – www.jackmillerdesign.co.uk Email – contact@jackmillerdesign.co.uk Phone – 07399 458 932

Being “fresh” to me with design in mind, is making work that is current and relevant while still keeping it true to what it was intended to be designed for. To me as a designer, I don’t feel “fresh” until I have had my bowl of Cheerios and my flat white in the morning, then I am ready to start the day and hit the grindstone.

82


M O L LOY

Web – www.sarahmolloy.co.uk Email – sarahmolloy72@gmail.com Phone – 07972 293 395

I consider "fresh" to be new, interesting and exciting. As you can see from my portfolio I like to work particularly in a hand-drawn illustrative style with typography added here and there. I continue to push myself to execute my work in response to a brief with meaning and passion. For me there’s no "fresher" feeling than knowing I have completed a brief to the best standard I can.

84


M OR R I S

My freshest feature is my sense of humour. I incorporate it into my work because I love to make people laugh! I’m passionate about approaching my work from an ethical standpoint and I strive to be a considerate designer that puts people first. Graphic design is an opportunity to communicate with people on another level. I love dachshunds, board games and cartoons like Bob’s Burgers, Adventure Time and Rick and Morty.

The thing I love the most is to draw inspiration for my work from everything that surrounds me and use it to develop my designs. I love to try out different ways to create authentic looks that fit their purpose. Seeing a concept evolving as you work out your idea is what keeps me going and motivated.

Following graduation I hope to find a job in a new city - a fresh new start! My restless soul keeps me open to different types of work and experimentation.

OKE

Web – www.jonathanoke.co.uk Email – jon_oke@hotmail.co.uk Phone – 07543 019 516

My greatest skill for graphic design is typography, I find working with fonts rewarding as I can manipulate the message it’s conveying to meet the requirements set by the briefs. Being “fresh” to me is all about making sure that my designs display their messages clearly while making sure there is as little distraction as possible. I’m always looking to express my design thinking across multiple formats.

I am using print design as a method to express the unique cultures in Indonesia. By using this method of expression, I’m trying to show the world that near extinct cultures are the base of our modern art and society that we live in today. Without knowing the roots of our society, we cannot develop art even further.

Don’t hire me. I can’t make a good cup of tea and I listen to a lot of awful 90’s music. Apart from that I’m pretty easy to work with. As long as you have pizza parties and I get the opportunity to develop my ideas for projects, I’m a happy boy. Some of my ideas may stretch a brief at times but I won’t hold back. I’m stubborn.

Alongside the computer, I like to work with my hands. Producing physical work that I can incorporate within my designs. Interning in New Zealand taught me to push myself out of my comfort zone with my designs. By stepping away from technology it also allows me to experiment with new techniques and skills, pushing my designs in ways that I previously wouldn’t have. Experimentation opens up new possibilities and designs.

Hi I’m Stephanie. I put paper before screens. I sketch, illustrate or even use inks to keep me fresh and in touch with my work. Design captures my motivation. I see branding as a chance to turn ideas into reality, which sparks my creative flare, while editorial design embraces the order and structure of my personality. Being Stephanie is about cute cats and showing people I can do the splits.

I am a creative, aspiring to become an all-round designer. Being unique is vital, being it personal or in design. I enjoy collaborating with other disciplines such as fashion & illustration. When I think of "fresh" the smell of grass comes to mind. I love the challenge of creating an identity that incorporates a brand guideline, typographic layout and a tone of voice that will last with the client almost a lifetime. That’s fresh.

My ideas sometimes derive from the things I do when I am not designing. I look for inspiration everywhere and apply my observations to my designs, resulting in a new and fresh look for the project. My interest in bodybuilding has enhanced my ability as a designer to constantly strive to create unique and fresh ideas and inspires me to push my design to be a little better every time.

I’m a Graphic Designer who works in a unique way by mixing traditional hand-rendered methods and techniques with computer techniques, harmoniously. With a Fine Art and Graphic Design background, creativity and outside of the box ideas are a strength of mine. I love being able to experiment and try something different, rather than going for the obvious, to create meaningful design.

Being "fresh" in the design world for me is about constantly learning, creating and changing with the times. Whether it’s a website or branding, things change around us, and it’s important to adapt. As a person however, I don’t feel ‘fresh’ until I have consumed coffee in the form of a beautiful Caramel Latte or the ever trusty Americano. Turning Coffee into Code is a signature talent of mine.

I enjoy print design such as creating advertising campaigns, branding, and also some website and app design. Within advertising I like to produce designs that connect the people to the products advertised. What makes me "fresh" is that I do this by creating concepts that engage with the audience. Outside of graphic design I enjoy doing exercise, travelling and having a gin and tonic in the sunshine.

Being at the height of 6ft 3 means i have more room for creativity than most designers of an average height. I am able to apply this extra creativity to my speciality area of editorial design. I like to ensure my page layouts are interesting designs that engage the reader with depth and excitement. Being such a diverse designer allows me to adapt my skills to the needs of a brief, that can be either for screen or print.

I’m a graphic design enthusiast; I love clean, minimal design. Almost anything inspires me; I enjoy opening my mind to new and exciting things and my passion for design keeps me motivated. I am meticulous when it comes to my work. Until I feel a design is perfect, I won’t be satisfied. I am fueled by tea and the desire to create fresh, interesting works.

I try my best to make things look cool. If you like it too then that’s awesome. I am never completely satisfied with the work that I produce, for some that could be a bad thing, but for me it’s a good thing. It drives me to keep pushing my boundaries and developing my skills. I’m hungry to produce good work…I hope you enjoy it!

Photography has always been my main passion. As a photographer, I have been integrating the communication and design skills learned throughout the Graphic Design course into my personal work. This has given me the opportunity to enhance the way I express my photography; with the purpose of reaching out to others and encouraging people to appreciate a different perspective.

I enjoy taking inspiration from all walks of life and putting them into my design in some way. My interests, passions and hobbies are very diverse, which means my thought process and design outcomes can take various different shapes. What motivates me though is the message and the meaning, more specifically how I can convey this message from a new angle or perspective.

I am the kind of person that will always be on the lookout for current trends, whether in creative or daily life. Pretty much anything that looks unique, edgy, cute, looks good, sounds good gets my attention. Therefore, I hope to gain experience in diverse design industries; be it fashion, poster, label, merchandising or others. That way, I can broaden my knowledge of different design methods, techniques and ideas.

I initially got into graphic design because my family have a history in print and a love for art and design. Growing up around designers I learnt to appreciate a wide variety of artists and design styles. All these influences have shaped the way I now design my own work. I also have a love for minimalism both as a way of life and a design style.

Hi, my name is Xu Shuyu. I’ve done various logo, web and poster designs in my academic years. Inspired by illustration and typography, I am starting to love print design. However, I also like creating science fiction and modern style designs because they feel “fresh” and unique! I also like to travel, take urban photos, play musical instruments and do some freehand painting in my spare time.

As a discipline that lives within the everyday culture, design has a huge influence on people. My purpose as a designer is to encourage positive change within society by getting the right message across. Whether it is a poster or a huge advertising campaign, for me it is important to produce work that aims for more than just advertising the products, but also promotes conversation and changes behaviour for the better.
