I’m Danielle Muntyan, an Internationally Published Graphic Designer and Consultant, working within the Beauty and Fashion Industries. After working on a wide range of Fashion and Beauty-led freelance and contractual projects, I feel that there is much more within this field to be explored both on a design-led and contextual basis.
This blog will follow my journey on the MA Creative Practice course, undertaking a study of the Fashion and Beauty industries, in an aim to understand how and why mass media affects our sense of body image and self-perception.
I will also consider the effects of various cultural and non-cultural influences such as, religion, politics, economy, societal norms and conventions of trends, beauty and body-image and how this also contributes to a magazine or ad campaign or instance. By undertaking briefs and research, I hope to build a body of research and work which can be implemented into a final outcome to show my concluding findings.
By undertaking self-directed studies at MA Level, I am aiming to further develop my knowledge, skill-sets and application of Fashion Communications and Graphic Design, both for my personal and professional practice.
