Amanda Duffin

Senior Lecturer & Subject Leader BA (Hons) Graphic Design

Amanda has over 25 years experience in all areas of brand communications, from working at board level and shaping a brand, to delivering compelling and appealing visual messages for various B2B and B2C companies including; Sainsbury’s, Worcester Warriors Premiership Rugby Club, Neal’s Yard Remedies, various national Universities, Hilton Hotels, AGA, Fired Earth and Sony, to name a few.

She holds a BA (Hons) in Graphic Design from Plymouth University, which she completed in 1997. Prior to returning to her roots at Plymouth College of Art, she lectured on the Foundation Degree in Graphic Design at University Centre Weston and the BA (Hons) Graphic Design degree at The University of Gloucestershire.

She is 100% dedicated to nurturing creativity and is an advocate of inspiring an environment where students grow through collaboration, not competition, resulting in the production of powerful, resonating creative output that truly connects in the way intended.

She splits her time between leading the BA (Hons) Graphic Design programme at Plymouth College of Art, running her brand consultancy, and managing the Creative Confidence in Design Forum. She also has interests in traditional processes, such as letterpress and screen-printing, and can be found (or not found) most weekends exploring the coast in her T5 camper van.
