Eleanor Webb is one of our current sixth form pupils, studying on the Graphic Design A-Level course. Here she shares her experience of the course and examples of her latest designs.
Eleanor's work started at one of our local inner city museums, The Bridewell Museum. It was at this visit that Eleanor and other pupils were encouraged to gain inspiration and first hand research of branding and packaging. Her work shows the outcome of re-branding an old fashioned chocolate wrapper into a contemporary design.
'Having only joined Norwich School in September, I not only feel that I have settled into the school environment with ease, I also have become very fond of my 2D lessons. It is my first time studying graphic design, yet I feel I have fitted into the niche of the system with a lack of reserve. From the first day of joining NS I have felt included and able to have help if I need it. I was quite worried about starting graphics having never done if before, but it is definitely my favourite A Level subject! The briefs we receive are truly engaging, and innovative. We have completed 5 different topics since September, focusing on colour schemes, pattern, typography and graphical illustrations. My favourite brief so far was when we had to rebrand a product for a local, Norwich company. I don’t feel that not doing the subject before was a disadvantage, and I have already gained a lot of confidence within my work and within my group.'
