STUDENT PROFILE

MATTHEW JINKS What do you enjoy most about your course? I didn’t expect the range of things we’d learn, I just thought it would be mainly Photoshop and InDesign but it’s so much more. What’s your favourite thing about The Northern School of Art? I love how we can freely work on our own and we’re not too pushed into a certain direction. What are your next steps? After this, I’m planning on heading to York St John to study Illustration. What's surprised you about your time here? It’s a really nice environment to work in.
