Klara found that the contact with industry on her BA (Hons) Graphic Design course prepared her well for life after graduation, but it was the live briefs in particular that inspired her to start her own business.

"What I like most about the course is the close connection to the industry and the valuable relationships we can form - not only with our tutors and teachers, who are also practising designers and artists, but also with a range of design agencies and studios that brief us and work with us in the second year.

"I have not only learned about the process of designing and technical skills, I have also learned who I am as a designer, how I work best, what inspires me and how I can inspire others. It was great to find out about how the industry works, how I can get myself out there and which career options there are in the future.

"After graduation I am hoping to develop my skills further working in a design agency, discovering what type of studio environment suits me. After getting enough experience I would like to start my own studio and work on jobs that really suit me and my style, challenging myself as a designer and hopefully contributing to making this world a better and more beautiful place through design."
