Hello :) I’m Niamh. When I first started at Trent, I didn’t have a lot of confidence in my work. However, I stuck with it and figured out what my strengths were. I soon gained confidence and discovered a passion for book and editorial design. I really enjoy getting hands-on with my work, experimenting with different processes and media. This year especially, I have discovered a joy in book binding (it can be very therapeutic once you get into the flow of it). I went through the process of making physical outcomes for all of my projects this year, so being familiar with different binding techniques proved to be very beneficial. With experimentation there comes a lot of learning curves, I think it’s safe to say I had a fair few, especially since I’m a little bit of a perfectionist and find joy in the smaller details. I hope to continue my journey in the world of design (hopefully book design) after University, gaining experience and knowledge within the industry.
