Why did you choose comm design?
I chose it because I have always been really creative like even as a kid I always loved creating things and helping people and making people happy so I've kind of thought it was both of those things.
Can you tell us about the concept behind that?
I watched this roller derby movie called "Whip It" and all the girls were tough and interesting and they all have really cool names and I thought it would be a really interesting concept.
Whats your favourite thing about the course?
I like how passionate everyone is about it, the teachers and the students, everyone shares ideas with each other and inspires each other and feeds off each others creativity.
Whats been your favourite brief?
We just had one “venture into the unconventional” it was really awesome because you could just do whatever. But to do it in time was also a bit tricky because you don’t know if you're being weird enough. I ended up doing a roller derby zine and it was a lot of fun.
Can you tell us what the inspiration was?
I looked at girls on like Etsy and Tumblr and the really awesome feminist art. It was just awesome, it was really just cutesy but it was also, pardon my French, badass. I was inspired by their bravery and the interesting way they conveyed that.
Would you have any advice for future students?
Maybe having confidence in your abilities because I never have confidence in my abilities.
I think that makes a big difference.
What would you call your style?
I don’t know, I think if I were to define it now and then I defined it in two months it would be completely different. I'm still trying to work it out. But I like to work with old stuff that people have done before but make it new.
