Working in the large open plan design studios, you will be encouraged to explore print, paper, book binding and other print formats alongside screen, interface and other digital design media. Some of the most influential professional designers, such as David Pearson (Type as Image), Gordon Beckett (The Sunday Times) and Hannah Wood (Little, Brown), inform course content, contribute to our lecture series and set live briefs.
