Arran Gregory - Illustrator
Arran Gregory graduated from Chelsea's BA Graphic Design Communication course in 2009, and has since worked as a freelance illustrator for clients such as Coca-Cola.
Why did you choose Chelsea's BA Graphic Design Communication?
I was based at Chelsea for my Foundation Diploma in Art and Design and felt really comfortable there. Then a friend of mine recommended the Graphic Design Communication course to me, and I was impressed by the interesting, professional work they were creating.
Your most memorable moment at Chelsea?
Unveiling my seven foot tall mirror bear at my end of degree show in 2009. Although, driving down the M25 to deliver this sculpture was a pretty close second.
What was your first job after graduating?
I was lucky enough to land a contract designing skateboard decks for Coca-Cola.
And what are you currently working on?
A mirror sculpture of a wolf for a client in Los Angeles.
Do you have any tips for Chelsea students?
Keep developing your personal work alongside course briefs and make the most of the college's library, something I wish I'd done more of.
