Meet Rebecca

For the next few months we’ll have a new intern in the studio, so we thought give you the chance to get to know Rebecca Rickards just a little better.


Q: What’s been the best part of your four years studying here in Falmouth?

A: Living in Cornwall is definitely a highlight, I’ve really enjoyed living somewhere completely new and by the coast (its going to be hard to leave!). I will really miss places like Kynance and Cadgwith Cove. As well as living in Cornwall, both courses I did at Falmouth really opened up and completely broadened my horizons in design, I’ve learnt so much in the last four years.


Q: The best piece of advice you were given for life after uni?

A: Do what you love.


Q: What are your plans now that you’re graduating?

A: I’m here ’til the end of August and I’m planning to go Canada in September, then back to London/Bristol for internships.


Q: Who or what inspires your creativity?

A:  Lots of designers and artists inspire me every day, illustrators and designers such as Emma Block, Timothy Goodman, Owen Gildersleeve and artists like Chuck Close have always inspired me.


Q: Favourite film?

A:  This is hard… I watched a film the other day called Brooklyn which I loved, its right up my street!


Rebecca has just completed her BA Hons in Graphic design with a first.

During her degree she’s been racking up the placements, including spending time at Frugi, Big Fish and The Space Creative. She’s also just recently won a YCN award for her take on the cards that come with Bear’s fruity nibbles. See that, and more of her work below and on behance.
