Yas Banks — Third Year Graphic Design student at The University of Salford
Yas loves working on the risograph machine; seeing how her designs are transformed through the colours of the riso. Yas always takes a playful approach in her work, pushing the brief as much as possible. When working on projects she likes to envision how it would impact society rather than just for my personal development, raising issues to start conversations through the power of design. With this in mind, Yas will discuss gender inequality in the creative industry.
