Alumni Aanand’s degree in BA Graphic Communication helped him develop the skills that springboarded him onto an exciting career in design. He joins the long list of other successful graduates from the department of Typography and Graphic Communication.
“I’m currently a graphic designer at Sky, working in the UI digital team as a designer there and just before that I was a junior graphic designer at a marketing agency in Wokingham.”
Like many students, when searching for the right place to study, Aanand had a list of what he would like out of his course. He knew he wanted to study design, but one of his main priorities was that his design course needed to offer a study abroad option. He wanted to learn about the theory of design and discover the academic side of the field, whilst having a practice design focus.
“It wasn't just like all other design courses, that are focused exclusively on drawing or making things. Reading was also focused on research and writing.”
“For the course itself, if you're someone that wants that analytical side, and you want to be able to still research and write and understand the theory of why certain design works and why certain design doesn't work. I think it's great for that. And I think if you want to come out with individual projects that are personal to you, I think it's fantastic for that.”
