Peter Howell was working in TV—pitching ideas for shows. Faced with redundancy, he sought out new creative challenges and discovered graphic design—and Shillington. Since graduating from the course four years ago, Peter has become somewhat of a creative Renaissance man. He’s part graphic designer, including a stint at Wieden+Kennedy Amsterdam, part illustrator, part comic book writer and is still working in TV development—with the skills and knowledge he learnt on the Shillington course playing a part in everything he does.
I think one of the most useful and transferable skills I picked up at Shillington was how to portray and present my ideas and thought process. Since a lot of my work is in creative fields, this has been super helpful.
