I’m Maddie and I am currently doing an Art Foundation at Northbrook College, West Sussex. As an aspiring designer, my work is greatly influenced by my surroundings – what I see, hear, touch and smell.
“The vocation of a designer is essentially at root the same as that of the artist. But unlike the artist who has largely cut himself off from society, the designer has to function within the limitations of society. Whereas the artist works to self imposed limitations, the designer accepts those imposed from outside, by the commissioning body, and the specific problem he is called upon to solve. But this difference is only one of degree… The good designer has to please himself as well as his client” – F H K Henrion, Graphic Designer, 1962
