Studio Culture

The Cass Visual Communication area houses Studio Culture, where students from the Cass School of Design explore the notion of 'studio culture'. As part of the exploration process, we include industry visits to all types of creative agencies and studios. We also look at how you can embrace and use your own studios at The Cass to inform your practice.

The students on our Graphic Design BA and Illustration BA courses are introduced to 'Studio Culture' over sixteen different design, illustration, branding and print studios within the school.

You are able to engage with the creatives within these studios as well as questioning the nature of the spaces and relationships within them.
