Students named by Creative Bloq as ‘best graduates outside London’

By Kat Peberdy

Josh Fathers, BA Hons) Graphic Design

With our Breaking Through Degree Shows highlighting the range of diverse practices here at the college, we’ve seen some fantastic coverage of our students work in the local and national press.

Online publication Creative Bloq, which serves as a source of inspiration and tips for creative professionals, featured eight of our graduates across Illustration, Animation, Fashion Media and Marketing, Game Arts and Graphic Design. This publication brings the very best design work to their audience of over 300,000 followers, so to be named as part of their New Talent 2017: Best graduates outside London is high recognition.

Whether you’re looking for new creative talent for your studio or collaborative opportunities, the talented graduates here boast exceptional final year projects that excel in both concept and execution – and are worth keeping an eye on.
