Some of Kev's work

Kev Munday

BA (Hons) Graphic Design

Graduated 2009

Picture of Kev Munday

My course taught me to experiment in a wide variety of styles, think wide and learn digital and handmade skills. After graduating I worked part-time while building up my studio practice and self-promoting my illustration and artwork.

This degree is for you if you're self-motivated and interested in a career in design. 

I’ve now been working as a full-time artist for just over seven years, primarily focusing on hand drawn artwork on canvas and murals. I’ve produced work for brands including Graham & Brown Wallpaper (wallpaper designs), Ten Skateboards (skate decks), Monster Energy (hand painted murals) and The Hemp Trading Company (clothing designs).

I produce around 200 original works of art a year, which I sell through representing galleries in France, Belgium, the Netherlands, the UK and online. Some of these artworks then go on to be licensed for products or print designs.

Graphic design/art gives me the opportunity to creatively express myself for a living. For those who want to do the same, work as hard outside of the course as you do on it, and set yourself creative briefs when you haven’t got projects coming in.
