Ekaterina Popova

BA (Hons) Graphic Design | Class of 2021

I love describing myself as a ‘visual communicator’ who creates in the creative industry including graphic design, illustration and motion graphics. I am passionate about creating work that sends a message to the target audience, whether it is to communicate, educate or promote.

Studying ‘Graphic Design’ at the University of Sunderland created a new era for me. I have learned unfamiliar techniques for me including traditional printing techniques such as lino print and printmaking. Additionally, I have explored digital software such as Adobe Illustrator, Indesign, After Effects, Photoshop, Adobe XD and Cinema 4D.

The projects that I have presented are my favourite, including the final major project “Bee Friendly” which aim to educate and promote saving the bees with various outcomes.
