Female influence:
Laura Watt

Photographer:
Layla Sailor

My graphics teacher, Laura is a strong influence in my life. Her strong opinions have pushed me through hard times and her passionate nature has helped shape who I am. Opening me up to the creative possibilities of graphic design has inspired me to continue my education to degree level.

I chose large building blocks, encasing knowledge of design books, to show how she has helped build me as a person.

Fashion and Freedom exhibits shows themes showing strong roles of women during WW1. Previous to this time women were given little freedom to explore different paths in life such as education and building a career. To be inspired by a female teacher in employment today would not have been possible without this era. Credit is owed to the women of WW1 for kick starting the huge progress women of the last century have made.
