Quentin Newark, graphic designer

  • Middlesex University London

The Middlesex University Art&Design Club enjoyed their Masterclass with designer Quentin Newark, in which they were challenged to design a self-portrait for an autobiographical book jacket.

After an introductory talk by Quentin about his life as a graphic designer, they started to think about a title for their book and ideas for the design of the jacket.

With help from Quentin, they used sketches, photographs, paint, found objects, computer imagery, typography and other media to develop their portrait. At the end of the session, they pinned them up and critiqued the results, aided by Quentin’s applause-o-meter.
