Hello! I’m Charlotte. I’m an MA student in Graphic Arts at UWE Bristol, and a freelance graphic designer.
I came to design quite late on my twenties, having done my undergraduate degree in historical studies at the University of Bristol. As much as I enjoyed history, I realised art and design was my true passion and what I wanted to pursue as a career. However, the industry is not super open to people who don’t have qualifications in design. So, I put a portfolio together of my random collection of artistic endeavours and got on to this MA.
This blog documents my journey and experiences as I learn and grow as a designer. Let’s be real: this is as much for me as anyone else, so I can track my own progress and growth. I hope for it to serve as a repository of things I’ve learned along the way. Hopefully it will serve as inspiration for anyone out there who also wants to be a designer, especially if you’ve come to it later on in life and don’t think your journey is the “typical” one. I want to make design as accessible to as many people as possible and encourage everyone to follow their passion.
If you’ve enjoyed my site and found my posts useful, you can definitely help me to fuel more… buy me coffee? ☕
