Stefan is a freelance comic artist and illustrator

'Spotlight' is a series of blogs showcasing amazing young adults that we've worked with, and celebrating their talents and achievements.


Stefan studied Graphic Communication Design BA (Hons) at University of Westminster. He recently started creating his own comic projects, including handmade mini zines he self-publishes and sells at comic and art events. These can be bought online, here.

Stefan was also a recent graduate of our Creativity Works: Design programme - a free, 6 week employability course for 18- 24 year olds interested in starting a career in the design sector.

Here's what he thought of the experience:

“Through participating in the Create Jobs/A New Direction Creativity Works: Design programme I met lots of new people. Not only that, I made friends. Whilst attending sessions at Makerversity I got the chance to use software like Autodesk CAD Fusion 360 and equipment I’ve never used before, and also try 3D modeling. I gained new skills and learnt a lot from this programme. I really enjoyed it.”

We gave Stefan the brief of summing up his experience of the programme in a comic. Below is his response:
