BA (Hon)est: Graduate Advice #5 – The big day!

So it’s almost here: ‘the big day’! I’m talking about Graduation, of course(weddings are soooo 2009). Some students will already have graduated by now as it seems that every University has a different schedule for Graduation. I have heard of some Graduations taking place as late as January the next year, but as I’m a...

Private View: Show Fourteen

I really can’t believe that it’s been a year since Show Thirteen – where has the time gone!? 365 days on, I can’t call myself a ‘recent graduate’ anymore because there are now a fresh crop of talented Graphic Designers graduating from Lincoln – Show Fourteen. I travelled to Lincoln after finishing work last night...

In my words…

As I mentioned in my post about the MA exhibition preview, I picked up a copy of Issue 2 of the lsa&d magazine. The magazine showcases a flavour of the school of art & design as well as the achievements of different courses. Obviously I’ve just finished my degree, BA (Hons) in Graphic Design at...

Making an Impact

As a student, you’re often told that ‘the real learning begins once you get into industry’. Having recently made the transition from Graphic Design student to Graphic Design graduate I am definitely starting to get a taste of what that means. Freelancing is a bit of a scary word for me. You work for a...

You can now address me as Natasha Nuttall BA Hons – I am officially a graduate! Thursday was a beautiful, magical, busy and emotional day. It was a bit of a blur, so at least there’s about 5 million photos to help me remember what happened! We were the first ceremony of the day at...

What’s in the window? Me! Well I’m not anymore, but I was in the window today creating a display for the auction. The Auction 13 team have been given permission to use TPH’s window to display our lovely postcards, so we set to work:            We’ve displayed the postcards that we’ve...
Women in Graphic Design

Women in Graphic Design

The University library started a system called ‘More books’ just after christmas where students can request new books that are needed for studying/dissertation. My dissertation looks at women in Graphic Design – the attitudes, successes and problems faced. As a female about to go into the industry, it’s something that is very relevant and I...
Auction 13

Auction 13

When I was at college, my tutor received a poster from one of his ex-students, Toby Burkill. It was an awesome poster; it was an St Brides Design Auction poster! Screen printed in a rainbow of colours, it inspired me when I finally got the opportunity to try my hand at screen printing a year later (which...

Chitter-Chatter presents: YCN

Today students gathered for the first talk of the Chitter-Chatter series. Zoë from YCN came to talk to us Lincoln creatives – a great way to start off the series! Zoë began by introducing YCN; explaining what they do and the different ways they help young creatives. Since 2001 YCN have worked with companies to provide...

Fundraising is well under way in the Lincoln GD studios at the moment, and now news of my favourite event is here: The talks team (aka Chitter-Chatter: Sam, James and Talveer) have booked YCN to kick off the talks series on Weds 13th Feb. I love the talks series as they offer an opportunity to hear...

Our tutor, Glen, and Steve looked through our magazine spreads as we explained our ethos, articles and design choices. Steve...

Just thought I would do a quick post about why I’ve been at Uni on a Saturday. Emma & I have been helping out with the University of Lincoln open days for a couple of weeks now. We both love to talk and we both love our course, so I guess we are the perfect...
