Jessica Reid

Senior Lecturer in Graphic Design

After studying Graphic Design at this university, I went on become a specialist in branding, packaging and brand communication design. After 10 years of working in industry I decided to come back, teaching onto the course that started my career. Chevron icon


I’m a walking advert for the BA Graphic Design course here at the University of Gloucestershire, having graduated from it myself back in 2008. In the decade that followed, my career as a graphic designer took me to award-winning branding and packaging design agencies in Bath, London and New York, working on globally loved brands including Cadbury and Coca-Cola. Slightly older – and most definitely wiser – I returned to UoG in 2016 to educate and inspire the next generation of graphic designers. Drawing on my experience as both student and professional, I devote my energy to creating the positive, supportive and creatively challenging atmosphere of a professional studio environment, supported by enviable links to industry. My belief is that our students’ hard work and creative commitment should be rewarded with the skills they need to earn those four simple words: ‘You got the job.’
