Company directors Steve Campbell and Marie Campbell both graduated with a BA (Hons) in Graphic Communication in 2002 and set up Wolverhampton-based Début in June 2005, after gaining experience working within the design industry.
They are now regularly working alongside the marketing departments of the School of Art & Design and School of Education on newsletters, and also worked on the website and event catalogue for the recent Glass Routes exhibition. They are preparing to talk to third year Graphic Communication students about their experiences in the graphic design industry.
Plans are under way for the company to take a graduate on a ten-week placement through the Knowledge Innovation Technology Transfer Scheme (KITTS) in Spring 2009. KITTS aims to match the skills of recently qualified graduates with the specific needs of small and medium-sized enterprises within the West Midlands.
Steve Campbell, Managing Director of Debut, said:” We’re extremely pleased with how Début is developing both locally and nationally. All of our hard work and dedication, alongside the support networks within Wolverhampton and in particular the support we have received from our former lecturers at the University of Wolverhampton, has contributed to our success. We are pleased to now be in a position to offer something back.”
