“I came to Middlesex with a great enthusiasm and passion for graphic design. I was encouraged and supported, with a wide range of disciplines and briefs to respond to, which helped me find my own direction. It was fantastic to have so many hands-on creative opportunities from the outset with photography, letterpress, printmaking and 3D design. By the time I reached my third year I had a very clear idea of what I wanted to do when I left.

I had an opportunity to complete an internship as a part of the course, and exhibited at a Free Range exhibition in central London, which as a new graduate was great exposure. I found the tutors to all be supportive and inspiring people to work with, and the general feeling on the course to be friendly, collaborative and highly motivated.”
