I’m Hannah – I am a multidisciplinary designer studying the Visual Communication MA, with a background in graphic design. I like to work in many different mediums in order to select containers which work best for the subject matter at hand. Over the course of my MA I’ve used stop-motion, book design, letterpress, painting, illustration, and photography in order to convey my ideas.
In my freelance design work I create branding and ephemera for brands in a variety of sectors, from events, to publishing, to hospitality, to healthcare. More recently, I have been teaching art and graphic design NCFE and National Curriculum to 8-20 year olds with specialised educational needs.
For as long as I can remember, I’ve been fascinated with typography and linguistics. As a teenager, I would analyse the layout of album covers and CD booklets for hours – leading me onto doing graphic design work for local bands and musicians. I also work with audio, and hold a diploma in guitar performance: performing and marketing music, putting on grassroots events, and collaborating with other artists were an extremely formative part of my teenage years.
I graduated from the University of Brighton in 2022 with a BA degree in Graphic Design. Throughout these past few years, I have been focusing on gaining technical, theoretical, and conversational design skills across a range of media. My personal work typically focuses on finding means of expressing personal narratives, or of communications systems for topics that the population may find difficult or painful to talk about.
