Nicola Liddiard, LSFM | MA Design

Teaching graphic design within BA (Hons) Media Production here at the University of Lincoln has given me the perfect opportunity to study for an MA in Design. It has taken me a long time, but, sadly, now the end is nearly in sight. I completed my Major Practical Project last summer and am now working on the final piece, my Negotiated Written Study.

My Major Practical project was exhibited in the recent Festival of Creativity degree shows, and with that over I am now hoping to introduce my work to a wider audience of colleagues. You can see the poster I designed as part of the show here.
