Rae Hildbrand's prospectus cover

<p dir="ltr"><a href="">Marie Dunaway</a>, <a href="">BA (Hons) Costume Production</a> Course Leader: "For me, Rae’s detailed and intricate work encapsulates the course dynamic in respect of students being able to test their own creative skills through using traditional and non traditional fabrics, being able to choose a design to interpret into a 3D functional costume, challenging preconceived ideas of costume through storytelling."<br /></p>

Beth Hobby's prospectus cover

<p dir="ltr"><a href="">Kirsty Smith</a>, <a href="">BA (Hons) Fashion Media &amp; Marketing</a> Course Leader: "What stands out to me in this image isn't just the captivating colours, but rather the serene pose of the model. As a student, working with individuals who may not have much experience being photographed or who are not accustomed to being directed can be challenging. However, witnessing Beth's growth in mastering these skills was wonderful. She spent time connecting with the people she photographed, building a rapport that allowed them to feel at ease in front of the camera. This approach is evident in many of her fashion images, where the subjects exude a sense of empowerment, captured through her lens."</p>

Matthew Vos' prospectus cover

<p dir="ltr"><a href="">Martial Buglio</a>, <a href="">BA (Hons) Animation &amp; Games</a> Course Leader: "Matthew’s work captivates with its striking use of colour; the blues and purples add depth and a mystical quality. The luminous eyes serve as a powerful focal point, suggesting otherworldly energy, while the freckles and pointed ears add a realistic texture and a fantastical element, hinting at an elven heritage. The expert balance between realism and fantasy in this composition creates an intriguing, ethereal character that is visually compelling."</p> <p dir="ltr">"As an artist, Matthew demonstrated remarkable prowess and individuality, developing a distinctive style early in his career. Opting to enrol in the BA (Hons) Animation &amp; Games course, Matthew was particularly drawn to the programme's unique structure and ethos, which championed creative freedom and self-expression. This environment provided him with the perfect platform to not only continue honing his skills but also to explore and expand his artistic visions without restraint. The course's emphasis on innovation and flexibility allowed Matthew to seamlessly integrate his personal aspirations with academic pursuits, fostering an atmosphere where his artistic endeavours could flourish alongside his professional development."<br /></p>

Rosie Hartshorn's prospectus cover

<p dir="ltr"><a href="">Jane Prior</a>, <a href="">BA (Hons) Commercial Photography</a> Lecturer: "Rosie’s project highlights different places where women feel scared to walk alone in the dark. The aim is to raise awareness on the negative impact unwanted public sexual harassment can have on women."</p> <p dir="ltr">"Photography, as well as being a strong visual medium, as can be seen in the striking composition and creation of Rosie’s image, can be a vehicle for opening up discussions on social and political issues. Rosie’s project ‘We Walk Together’ not only showcases the photographer's aesthetic vision, but also highlights issues faced by women on a delay basis. The work acts as a catalyst for open and frank conversation which can help to prompt change in the world."<br /></p>
