MK College uses student’s artwork for campus murals

Milton Keynes College has recently added new designs to the windows and hallways of its Chaffron Way and Bletchley campuses – based on illustrations by one of its former students. 

The new designs are part of a brand ‘refresh’, which focuses on the idea of ‘learning in motion’, reflecting the sense that our educational experiences are active, engaging and alive. This also shows that the College itself is always in motion, moving and adjusting to what our students and communities need and allows the College to have our values more prominently displayed. 

Julia Klimaszewska, one of the College’s former Graphic Design students, provided the illustration that we used. Julia is now studying automotive design at Coventry University and commented: “It feels great knowing that a part of my work is out there for others to see. I always said that the thing I look forward to most as a designer is seeing what I made in the flesh. I really enjoyed my time at Milton Keynes College; I knew that A-levels wouldn’t be for me and I’m glad I went to study Graphic Design at the College. 

Julia added: “Since leaving the College, I have helped to graphically brand multiple online communities and start a new brand for myself. MK College provided opportunities like competitions and projects such as the mural illustration, that allowed me to impress prospective universities and probably could have enabled me to get a job if I didn’t take the university pathway.” 

Del Woodward, Course Team Leader: Graphic Design at Milton Keynes College, said, “We’re very proud of Julia’s achievements. Her designs being used in this way are a testament to Julia’s hard work, talent and understanding of the brief that has given her design solutions the versatility to be able to be adapted for a multitude of applications.”
