How Digital Media Students from the University of Gloucestershire have adapted to a life online


We caught up with Anisha & Gabija to find out how they’ve been keeping their creative juices flowing throughout lockdown and beyond.

Thanks to a series of simply themed challenges set by their course leader, students have been encouraged to develop their skills while working to a quirky brief. They’ve experimented with forced perception, abstract art, translucency, and most recently the colour yellow – we think the results are amazing.

This stunning piece of forced perception work was created by Anisha using Adobe Photoshop, and is the piece of work she is most proud of.

“Being in lockdown, I really wanted to take this time to learn new skills and programmes to better my practice as a designer. I also think it’s important to stay creative and try to keep workflow. I really look forward to each new challenge”

Gajita experimented with different software to create this fantastic GIF for her ‘yellow themed challenge’

“This GIF was one of the most exciting projects for me, as I used a brush in Photoshop to create the smoke – a skill I’m sure will be really useful in the future”

A big thank you to both Anisha & Gabija for sharing not only their incredible pieces of work, but also their personal experiences of adjusting to a life online.

Its great to see digital platforms creating such striking results. If you’d like to see more of their work, follow @uog_digital_media on Instagram.
