I am a final year BA (Hons) Graphic Design student. I have explored a wide range of areas in design and my strongest skills are in illustration and motion graphics/animation. Using design for good causes is important to me because I believe that design is a powerful tool for creating change in the world and society. Most of my work is influenced by positive and innovative causes and messages. My favourite project to work on from my final year was an animation project titled ‘Change is Necessary’. The brief was to create a piece of animation to accompany a given audio. I used stop-motion to make a piece of simple and flowing animation. Having never tried stop motion before, this was a great opportunity for me to expand on my animation and problem-solving skills. I learnt a lot and this project helped me to discover my passion for animation.
