The Graduates 2015

Our annual showcase of the most exciting students graduating from UK art and design courses is back for a seventh year. We were faced with the mammoth task of whittling down 900 applicants to only 16 talented people whose work ranges from graphic design and illustration to fine art and photography. They are a truly talented, driven bunch, and we’re very excited to be championing their work here.
