Hello, my name is Victoria Trussler, I am 21 years old and currently a graphic design masters student at Nottingham Trent University. I have chosen to create this Blog to document my time and work efforts throughout the last two semesters of my course, as well as to share my ideas and practical endeavours.


Though I am originally from Nottingham, the last three years I had studied and lived in Leeds completing an undergraduate degree in Contemporary Art Practice. The course concerned itself with modern art and covered a wide range of artistic influences and medium. Through the duration of the course I worked with sculpture, paint, ink and printing, though digital design always prevailed. Therefore the final year of my degree saw me grow into my own in the digital design discipline, where I explored and developed work using computer software programs such as Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator, whilst also contributing some of my other skills, including ink drawing, spray-paint and print work.


I moved back to Nottingham about six months ago to continue following my dream of establishing a career where I will create graphic illustrations for album covers, posters, print advertisements and magazines.. I chose to undergo this Graphic Design MA in order to specalise my skills and subsequently be a much more desired candidate when finding work in my chosen industry. I know that I enjoy creating digital pieces of work, and hopefully this course will help me discover how I can appropriate my skills and ideas in order to appeal to future clients and employees.
