Dani Moseley’s Update: Summer 2013

Our multi-talented 2007 graduate rounds up her latest events, both here & abroad.

Dani-Moseley_Mag-FrontCoverI got the shock of my life when a friend of mine in St Lucia sent a picture of me on the front cover of a St Lucian Magazine!  Basically the photographer was St Lucian, she’s well known and got interviewed for a mag over there. They asked to see/use some of her portfolio for the feature, so she let me know that they might use it for the interview.

So there I was thinking if they were going to use anything, it would be some small little insert in the article, but nooooo, not only did they use ‘my’ picture, they put it on the front cover, which I was WELL chuffed about! Gonna get a copy soon!   Continue reading

Dani Moseley in Award Winning Web Series


Many congrats to our 2007 graduate Dani Moseley who was listed in the ‘Outstanding Guest Actress Award’ at the LA Web Series Festival 2013 for playing Simone in Brothers With No Game - BWNG to its web viewers. The online comedy drama won multiple awards, from producing to editing. Dani told me the first season was very popular and her character has been very well received: “I get stopped in the street more for that than anything else and because it is online, it’s always something I can refer people to. They can watch it ‘instantly’ whereas TV has happened & gone.” Continue reading

I started BROKENLOGO in 2007 in my last few weeks of my course – undertaking my initial piece of professional design work for the University and at the same time as working on the promotions team for the Engine Shed in its debut year. This role allowed me to achieve a position at the 02 Bristol Academy undertaking a similar role quite quickly after I’d moved to Bristol. Continue reading

Zoe and Will

Senior Web Developer Zoe established the business in 2010.  A year later, Will  joined as a Videographer.  They say the “Uni-factor” has come into play, because the School of Media is where their first employees have come from:
