Meet our students

Meet graphic design student BaileyBailey Marler chose to study at our Winsford campus due to its convenient location and wide range of modules; her favourites have included drawing digital self-portraits, and designing a gift bag as part of product design.

“I was looking for a course that was practical, but one that also allowed me to have creative freedom, so I came to one of the college Open Evenings. I met the tutors on the evening and found them really friendly, so I made my choice!”

Bailey hopes one day to establish her dream career of designing movie posters. She will be continuing her studies at her first choice university, Bournemouth Arts, to achieve her degree in Graphic Design.
