"I'm really thankful that we had the time to experiment on the course - I don't think you can fully appreciate the importance of that until you're working in a client-driven industry. When you're studying you're so keen to jump the gun and get going in the industry, but one of the great things about the course is that they held you back and made sure you had a solid grasp of the fundamentals of the ideas and design process first. Then in the third year, they introduced lots of professional practice, including setting up competition briefs. It's great just knowing you have the core background skills, including studying the history of graphic design. The many things I learned at Falmouth enable me able to talk about my design work in a far more complete way."
