Callum Pates
Motion man. Glitch Guy. Experimental yet still functional. Finishing an undergraduate at the age of 30, you could say my story into graphic design has been a unique one. As a previous restaurant manager at KFC, my work ethic of being in a fast paced environment and methodical thinking has helped shaped my process while at Nottingham Trent University. A big lover of dance music, I've always been inspired by the visuals at events and how they help add to the atmosphere. Adding motion to static work brings a new dynamic and makes it feel alive. It creates a personality that can't be recreated otherwise. While I also relish the challenge of problem solving with a project. Bringing order and making systems efficient is something I strive for. Having the balance of experimental while being fundamental makes me unique. The long journey to change my career is nearly here and I can't wait to start!
