OPOA Illustrations

From the simplest ‘Don’t be late’ (Rob Sanders, 1989) to words from our own Vice Chancellor and Principal: “Make sure you make something. Most of all, make a difference.”

We asked our alumni for their One Piece of Advice for current students and commissioned BA (Hons) Illustration alumni, Natasha Durley,  Marianna Madriz and Robin Mackenzie to bring the quotes to life. You can take a look at what they said below…
