Former Student Celebrates Design Success

Date Posted: 19/10/2020 | Posted In: Latest news

It was great to hear about the success of former QE student Emma Woodward this week who has had her Graphics work installed at the recently opened Cornell Quarter student accommodation complex, at Teesside University.

Emma, 22 from Darlington, studied Art Graphics and Travel & Tourism at the college and went on to complete a BA (Hons) Graphic Design and Illustration at Teesside University’s MIMA School of Art & Design. Her designs now adorn the stairwells in the new accommodation complex following a brief to produce environmental graphics.

Emma said: ‘The graphic design students were invited to work on a live brief given to us by the University. The brief was to produce environmental graphics for the stairwells of the Cornell Quarter.

‘My designs took inspiration from the North East of England and how students commute to university. Many students are from the local area and travel via bus, train or car, including myself travelling by train, which was my starting point for the designs.’ Emma used maps of the university campus and the Teesside region, along with photographs she had taken, to create the compositions.

‘I feel proud and honoured to have my work displayed, hopefully it will inspire other creatives.’
