Fiona Dunphy

"I would recommend anyone to get involved with NOISE. The confidence it gave me is unquantifiable & the opportunity to be able to sit down with established figures in the art & design world and get personal portfolio & career advice was so fantastic.”

And now?

" I am starting to establish my career as a freelance illustrator. I am represented by ‘The Artworks Illustration Agency’ which is making the process a whole lot easier. 

 I definitely agree that there is a need for NOISE. The design world is so competitive and it is difficult to be on a level-playing field with other students and practitioners who are perhaps studying and living in London. 

Not only do they have the prestige but the opportunities a lot closer to home. The most important thing about NOISE is that everyone is given the same opportunity and judged solely on your work."
