Graduate makes it into MIX Magazine
One of our fantastic graduates, Hollie Milne who studied BA(Hons) Interior Design, has had her work published in the prestigious MIX Magazine.
MIX Magazine is a quarterly publication, produced by creative agency Colour Hive who have been publishing design, colour, and material insight for over 20 years.
Hollie’s final year university project, ‘The Bottle Top Project’ was featured in the publication. The project is centred around the issue of rural homelessness in Cornwall and how this has only been further fuelled by the Covid 19 pandemic. ‘The Bottle Top Project’ explores how a disused and unloved factory, which once supported the Newlyn community with employment, can be brought back to life and support the Cornish community and families experiencing enforced homelessness due to the housing crisis.
