Theo Edkins

I’m a driven and diligent visual designer. I love to work in all mediums but have a passion for typography and print. My goal is to create meaningful work and encourage positive change, exploring current issues focusing on inclusivity and open-mindedness. I investigated the theme of belonging for the main body of my degree work. I have produced outcomes on a range of topics such as migration, racism, social class, and stewardship, to name a few. I am extremely grateful to have spent my last 3 years being constantly inspired and motivated by those around me. I am leaving

university feeling prepared for the next chapter and hope to maintain my curiosity and drive as I enter the design industry.
