Siwan Davies, BSc Marketing & Design

Looking back at my time in Lancaster University, I have gorwn so much in my view of design as well as my skillset. Arriving with limited experience, the past three years have pushed me to make the most of the opportunities surrounding me and encouraged me to find my love for graphic design, and branding in particular.
