Graphic Design work by level 3 student
BA Graphic Design students have had their work recognised as being ‘of a consistently high standard’ by FontStruct – the online type design tool, sponsored by the world’s leading retailer of digital type, FontShop.

Level 1 students on the ‘Communicating with Words’ module have had their work featured on the FontStruct website, alongside an interview with Graphic Design staff.

FontStruct is a public space where users can discuss and comment on each other’s work, and the students have gained a real boost to their confidence in discovering that designers around the world are genuinely interested in their work.

Read the full interview and view examples of the students’ work on the FontStruct website
