Meet Emma Lindsay

The design modules I took were extremely hands-on and really aided real-life work development. We undertook several projects with numerous external clients, that allowed us to experience first-hand how design projects work in the workplace.

I work for Rowntrees and I can’t stress enough how my experience studying Design at Lancaster aided my development in this role. I have assisted heavily on presentations, visuals, pack design approvals and feedback to agencies based on the design background of my degree.
