Asher-Kate is a final-year Major/Minor Creative Media and Graphic Design student at the University of Worcester. Having taken a year out to study Design in Canada, this allowed her to gain a wide variety of skills in this medium. During this time, she has developed her time management, organisational and interpersonal skills which have allowed her to become the confident, creative and driven individual she is today.
Asher is conversant with Adobe software and takes an interest in branding, photography and videography, whilst continually evolving her skill set in motion graphics and digital illustration, areas she is enthusiastic to learn more about.
This design was part of a brief Asher-Kate worked on with Zero Carbon Britain, where she focused on renewable energy and positive futures. As we face the challenges presented by Covid-19, we need to look at ‘greener solutions’ for a stronger, healthier and more resilient future. Asher was tasked with producing flyers, bus shelter advertisements and social media content, aimed at the British public and the Centre for Alternative Technology community action groups, based in Wales.
While Asher was studying at Brock University in Canada, she managed to capture this great shot of the Falls when visiting Niagara. Asher told us that Brock would host a range of great trips for the international and exchange students, including visits to Ottawa, Quebec and Montreal. Before Asher’s exchange was cut short in March, she also managed to stop over at Vancouver, allowing her to document some great photos of the country and its attributes.
This design was created as part of a ‘24h Pressure Project’, working with Worcester Paint Festival, that Asher and 3 other team members were set. A client presented a brief, requesting a range of at least 5 different sets of visual outputs, at 9 am. The following day at 1:30 pm, Asher and her team successfully delivered the final outputs to the client.
After the positive feedback and comments that were received, Asher said she is grateful that this project has not only helped her realise her full potential as a designer but also portray the extent of work that 4 undergraduate students can achieve in just 28 hours.
