Working with Studio Salford enables clients to offer meaningful employment opportunities for our students and graduates.
Yasmin’s expertise within design are crucial to the organisation of the agency, which enables students to gain experience working on live projects. Her industry knowledge and creativity provides students working with Studio Salford specialist one-to-one mentoring. This also gives reassurance to clients and industry partners, that the projects are professionally managed.
The process begins with the client brief, which is then discussed and adapted into a set of tasks for completion. This then leads on to the development of the project, involving students both currently studying and recent graduates/alumni. Students are guided and are able to work through the project adding their own creative touch, with guidance from Studio Salford staff throughout.
Prior to working at Studio Salford, Yasmin was a graphic designer for Manchester City Football Club, as well as working for many other big brands on a freelance basis. She also still runs her own freelance design business alongside her current role.
