Sam Baggarley
Sam is a graphic designer from London with a love for music, vibrant colours, and wacky characters. Throughout many different career and life changes, art and design have always been the constant in his life. Music also plays a huge role in Sam’s life. If he’s not designing or drawing, the chances of him listening to his records instead are higher than Santana at Woodstock ’69! Sam has always had a love for the art nouveau revival movement of the 60’s and 70’s. The new sounds bands were making went hand in hand with the beautiful posters and psychedelic typography that accompanied them.

Colette Connell
I would consider myself a mixed media human with a background in visual arts, music, dance and sporty things. These disciplines have really inspired my practice and I am so glad to be able to take this energy and set it to the world of Graphic Design. Maybe the most notable element of my practice is colour. I am able to communicate my own wildness in this way, nothing gives me more pleasure than seeing a bright neon block against a cool blue hue. I will be forever grateful for the positivity and enthusiasm of our Shillington heroes (teachers) and I am so excited to take what they have taught me and apply it to my next adventure (hopefully a studio based one!) Thank you endlessly.
