Dave Greengrow joined us from Maidstone, Kent for the IDI Graduation Ceremony 2016 at Edinburgh Castle. Having studied with us for a BA (Hons) Graphic Design, Dave was thrilled to have achieved his degree having returned to study after already starting his working career. Dave talked to us about combining full-time work with online study, and about the excitement of meeting his fellow students in the flesh for the first time.
In the Summer of 2016 after completing his degree with us at IDI, Dave officially established Dave Greengrow Design and now continues to grow his freelance design career.
Dave’s Design Work
“My creative journey started in the summer of 2001, after completing my BTEC Diploma in Graphic Design. Eleven years of full-time employment in the creative industries later, the opportunity arose to finally gain my Graphic Design Bachelor’s degree. After nearly four years of study, a lifetime goal has now been achieved thanks to the Interactive Design Institute.
“My aim whilst developing any creative project is to somehow stimulate a viewer – to create artwork that is somehow that little bit different, to make the piece standout and become memorable. All of the artwork selected for the Degree Show has a raw energy. I employed humour, exciting visuals and bespoke use of typography that jumps off the page with the same enthusiasm that I’ve put into creating every piece.”
