Whether you’re just starting or  have nearly finished a degree, there are items which all creative students need in their toolbox. When your student loan only stretches so far buying the right items is important, and after graduating in Graphic Design last year I’ve got a bit of experience when it comes to stationery shopping. I know it can be a little overwhelming, so when Ryman chose me as their August Blog Party winner, I...

Back in August I won the first issue of Imagine That, a zine showing student work. I even feature inside… well, one of my tweets:...

It’s all a bit exciting when you get live briefs – a chance to get your work out into the real world! Still, a bit daunting too! This month Amy, who currently does most of the nightlife flyers/design work, kindly persuaded SCY to start a design competition. This is going to be a monthly thing hopefully so watch this space! The brief was to create an A6  flyer for a new night at nightclub SCY,...

I work at a chinese restaurant, and something has been bugging me for weeks. One of my jobs before we open is to clean the salt, pepper and toothpick trays. I do this every Tuesday, and for a while now I have been seeing a face in the arrangement! It was very co-incidental/odd/perfect when at the ucas fair last week, a student at Leeds College of Art and Design told me about a ‘creative faces’ competition that is...
