BA (Hons) Graphic Design

Emily Pitchford

Good design is all about making other designers feel like idiots because that idea wasn’t theirs.”

I strive on tying up loose ends. Problem solving drives me and keeps me engaged and creatively inspired. Having something to fix gives me reason and purpose.

Hand constructed type and craft based techniques form the basis of my design work. I like adding my own modern edge to traditional crafts such as sewing and bookbinding. I enjoy stepping away from the computer, getting hands on with design and creating tactile and interesting concepts.
