I’m from Milan, Italy
Definitely the projects during my third year, which focused mostly on the language of branding and advertising that I appropriated to create an absurd narrative for a fictional brand.
The friendships I made, the nights spent working on a project before the deadline and the incredible relief and pride that followed! The sense of growth I experienced while studying here.
Creative, accepting, diverse
Try to use all of the facilities! You may find something you really enjoy you’ve never even knew existed before.
It’s a diverse course that allows you to test different point of views, mediums and ways of working without ever being just restricted to photography, or illustration, or group projects, or personal projects. As long as you know what you’re doing and you have the research to back up your ideas, you can be incredibly experimental.
Chaotic, sometimes overwhelming, but in London there is always something going on, something to do, an exhibition to see or an event to go to.
Since graduating I have worked with Julien Macdonald for a couple months, completed a personal project and contributed to an exhibition for Somerset House with some visuals. I’m currently working full-time as a Junior Graphic Designer for a skincare brand.
It gave me a multidisciplinary approach to design/art. It really pushed me out of my comfort zone in many ways and allowed me to constantly experiment.
