Chris Taylor

BA (Hons) - BA (Hons) Graphic Design



Chris came to Swindon College after studying in Dublin for two years.  He had two options to choose from, the other being a larger university.  Chris felt he would not get as much one to one attention with the lecturers there and that the learning experience would be better at Swindon College, where he would be treated as an individual.


Chris said,

The tutors and facilities are amazing, every time I come into college I learn something new.  I spend two days in college and have a job for four days a week.  I am now gaining work experience in my chosen career and hope to take up work experience placements over the summer. 

My tutors have really helped by having industry contacts and opportunities which the students can apply for. 


One of these landed Chris the opportunity to redesign the logo for Lawn Primary School.  Chris had to liaise with the school throughout the process, as the pupils had done the initial design and he then had to translate that into a usable graphic. 


He said,

It has been a good experience as I have learnt how to communicate with clients and achieve the desired outcome.

Chris wants to progress to becoming a full time graphic designer when he completes the course in two years’ time but in the meantime is impressed with the links he has been given the opportunity to use via his tutor.
