This year, across the subjects, in-person events ran alongside the online shows to make sure everyone had the opportunity to see the creativity of students for themselves. Find out more about the time and skill which has gone into final year projects by delving into the student case studies below.

Sophie Woodward, BA (Hons) Fine Art

Known for her large-scale vibrant oil paintings, Sophie uses bright colours over local newspapers, and overlapping planes: cityscapes of Newcastle; a series of classical statues. Sophie was presented with the Student Artist of the Year award by the Fine Art Trade Guild.
Inspired by her grandfather, Bethany created her brand, Miko, as an answer to fast fashion. Miko is a six-look menswear collection made up of pieces combining knitwear with screen prints and detachable elements. Bethany’s collection was on display at London’s Graduate Fashion Week where she was shortlisted for three separate awards.
Matthew’s final project, ‘Designing and Building an Interactive Virtual Guided Tour Website for Seaton Delaval Hall’ incorporates innovative technologies and inclusive website design to benefit a beloved cultural institution nestled in the heart of a diverse North East community.

With an inherent passion for taking on climate change, Miranda’s project, ‘A Capsule of Deep Time’, acts as a platform to better protect the springs at Derwent Valley in County Durham whilst challenging humanity to carefully consider its effect on the planet.

Poppy Scoffings, Graphic Design BA (Hons)

Poppy’s paid social media advertising used cookies to encourage behaviour change in the form of posting selfies to encourage more thought around how people dress. The aim of the campaign was to encourage people to re-wear their clothes and therefore reduce landfill.

Olivia Fletcher, BA (Hons) Fashion Design and Marketing

Olivia created her brand ‘Otherness’ which is described as an ‘antidote to fast fashion’, showing the process of ageing in a positive way and was showcased at Graduate Fashion Week. Olivia was shortlisted for three awards and jointly won the Fashion Illustration Award.

Sabby Jamalulail, BA (Hons) Fine Art

Sabby Jamalulail is originally from Malaysia and grew up in Coventry. Inspired by the communities that have shaped her, she tries to highlight these cultures in her art. Sabby was awarded an artist’s residency programme with Middlesbrough Art Weekender, and will present her work at this year’s festival, which takes place on 22-25 September.
