Where do you see progress and/or decline in the practice of graphic design?

I see progress in the way designers are embracing new technologies and exploiting them faster than before whether from generative design to various digital platforms and media.

What piece of advice would you give to new students?

If you’re not a Londoner, experiencing the city is as crucial to your development in the course as the actual work.
