Hello! My name is Kos. I am a third year Graphic Communication student from Plymouth currently studying at Plymouth College of Art.
As a graphic designer, I find myself often drawn to the illustrative side of design, but also have great enthusiasm for elements such as typography, communication and identity. The complementary relationship that these all have when executed well is what makes the work so enjoyable. I like to express my creativity, imaginative thought process and apply my attention to detail in order to produce an outcome for any given or self-given brief that I am working on.
Aside from design, my hobbies also involve creativity. Creating and painting miniature models is something that keeps my creative mind active when I am not working on a brief. Much of the rest of my spare time is spent walking my cocker spaniel!
In anticipation of the Bristol Youth Strike for Climate Change that was held on Friday the 28th of February 2020, Yasseen Faik ran a poster design workshop for my Graphic Design class at the time at the University of the West of England. This poster is the outcome of a collaboration with three other Graphic Design students. Our aim was to use collage in order to produce a raw-looking outcome.
Though this project was set as a university brief at UWE, it was also a competition brief that involved several other Universities across the UK. As made obvious by the design on the front cover, the object that I chose to produce a book for was the human brain.
A small project that was set as an introduction to the third year of the Graphic Communication course here at PCA. My selection of the words “anger” and “health” were inspired by the desire to work with a topic related to mental health.
