BROGAN ALGAR

Hey! I’m Brogan, a third year graphic design student from Exeter, Devon.
I have a broad range of interests within the design industry and enjoy exploring new areas each day. My key interests include brand identity, social media and motion graphics! I also thoroughly enjoy the research stage of design, uncovering the rationale behind the design solution. Alongside University, I work part-time as a junior designer for JDO, absorbing as much information as I can about real industry life, while I aim to grow as a designer. 

To keep my mind occupied with design when I’m not working, I like to upload motion graphics to my YouTube channel which now has over 4k subscribers. My uploads help YouTubers to edit their content if they can’t afford custom work. Among my busy schedule, any free time I have you’ll find me enjoying the outdoors on walks with my puppy, working out in the gym or having a bbq at the beach.

WORK

ACTIVE LOUNGEWEAR

Active Loungewear is a Devon based, women’s fitness and loungewear brand. Last year the owner approached me initially for a logo redesign, however, the project grew and I assisted with the design side of her business from start to finish. By the end of the project I had planned and created content for her social media channels, captured product shots for her website, and created additional assets such as postal thank you cards and Instagram graphics.

youtube graphics

Since 2019 when I began working freelance, my work has primarily focused on YouTube graphics which includes branding and motion graphics. Within this time I have worked with numerous social media content creators such as Hannah Ann Sluss from America’s ‘The Bachelor’, A YouTube with over 5 million subscribers who goes by the name of Cloe Couture, and Demi Jones who appeared on ITV’s winter Love Island.

PAUSE

This student competition was set by Refinery29 and The Case for Her, as part of the 2021 D&AD New Blood Awards. The brief challenged entrants to reposition menopause and highlight how its absence from mainstream media is detrimental to women, trans-men and non-binary people of all ages. 

Our solution was a selfie museum that brings the generations and genders together in an interactive and educational experience. The Pause event sparks conversations in a fun and light hearted way by showcasing facts, symptoms and more in a series of fun selfie rooms. As attendees upload to social media sites, there will be a buzz around social media with more wanting to learn and see what it’s all about.
