THIS IS Studio - Graphic Designers
THIS IS Studio are a multidisciplinary design practice founded by Camberwell BA Graphic Design graduates Richard Barnett, Barney Beech and Dougal Burgess in 2006.
Why did you choose to study BA Graphic Design at Camberwell?
The college felt like it had more of a creative environment than other places we had looked at.
What was the first job THIS IS Studio took after graduation?
Our first job was creating a series of short films for the band Muse's world tour.
What are you working on at the moment?
We're working on ongoing web projects for Rankin, an animation for Southwark council and a new identity for our collaborators Physical Pixels.
How did studying at Camberwell inform your work?
I think most importantly it was our contemporaries. We had a very strong year and of course we met each other and went on to set up the studio.
And what was the best advice you were given at Camberwell?
You will learn more from your contemporaries than you ever will from your tutors.
What tips would you give to a student starting out at Camberwell?
To take advantage of the facilities on offer. It's not until you leave you realise how expensive doing those screen prints or laser cutting projects will be.
