Valentina Verc |

My name is Valentina Verc and I am a graphic designer with a background in fine arts based in London. I have finished the Postgraduate Certificate Course in Design for Visual Communication at the London College of Communication. My previous studies include a Bachelor’s Degree in Fine Arts and a Master’s Degree in Design for Visual Communication at the Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Ljubljana, Slovenia. In my design practice, I attempt to incorporate the knowledge and skills gained studying fine arts. My main areas of interest are book and editorial design, information design, and typography. I have also a strong interest in illustration, and branding and identity.

I am looking for internships as well as permanent work. I am also interested in creative collaborations. If you would like to know more about my work, please get in touch.

My name is Sean Murphy and I am currently studying BA Hons Graphic Design at Nottingham Trent University although I am originally from London. My love of Graphic Design started from an early age and I am fascinated by the visual world around me. I am currently trying to further myself as a designer by learning new skills such as; print design, interactive design, branding, typography and screen printing. You can see more of my work at



"What I create is a direct reflection of who I am; it is how I think, what I see, and how I feel. I believe that these energies shed light into both the spirit and heart of myself as a designer."

Sally Carmichael is a graphic design student at the University of Kansas, recently completing her junior year in school. She specializes in publication and print design, and her work has been featured in places such as the AIGA Member Gallery, Student Show Gallery, and on the App Design Served Showcase. She was also recently awarded the Best Junior Portfolio Award at the National Student Show in Dallas, TX. Her design aesthetic focuses on clean and minimal simplicity that remains sophisticated and purposeful.

"My dedication to design is like being in a messy, complicated relationship. Some days I find myself in love, and other days full of animosity for my craft. What keeps us two together isn't always the love of the art, but the love of the outcome, the challenge, the process. As a designer I find that design can be truly devastating, but also incredibly and equally rewarding, which is what always has me coming back for more. This duet of risk-taking and refinement leads me through a dance that is continually testing my own abilities to improve. Without this back and forth process, I would not be able to continue to grow as a designer."

My name is Megan Hyslop and I'm a Graphic Designer originally from Dumfries and Galloway, Scotland. I am currently coming to the end of my Graphic Design degree at the University of Cumbria, Carlisle. Throughout University I have found that the aspects of design I enjoy the most are branding and editorial work. However, I am always willing to try something new. This is an example of branding work that I have done. This particular brief was for a (fictional) company that designs and produces cardboard furniture. To view some more of my work please visit:



I'm Louise Byng, a recent (ish) graduate from The Arts University (College) at Bournemouth. I currently work as a freelance illustrator in my homeland of the midlands as well as acting as the Assistant Editor for Another Escape magazine. Tackling a variety of subjects I use graphite and vibrant pencil crayons to create reflective drawings, built upon the use of strong expressive mark-making. To me every drawing is a 'wild frontier' and a form of cautious play, gradually feeling my way around the page with each stroke until the image has been built up. Having developed a recent interest in portraiture, the images here show my experiments in using boldness of colour to enhance the character of the subject in a distinctive manner. Focusing on current affairs, I try to use illustration as a form of timely documentation, creating work on what is happening both around me and more broadly in terms of society and culture in order to strike up a meaningful dialogue with others (now made easier through the instantaneous sharing of the www). Drawing is my passion because I find it continually challenging. There is always more to learn, to try out, to be proud of and to fail at, and my tactile aesthetic reflects a respect for drawing as a process, not just a finished product.


Kerry Lauren Heaney |

I am a Graphic Designer, currently in my third and final year at the University of Cumbria. I am very interested in Fashion, Editorial Design, Typography, Photography and Branding. I decided to do a self initiated project to design some branding for a clothing company which I made up. The name is 'Noble' because it means: 'of excellent or superior quality'. I wanted the brand to come across as classy, suave and stylish. I took some photographs of clothing that this brand would sell and then designed several posters, a website, lookbook booklet, business cards, clothing labels and a bag with the brand on it. (
