Here you will find tributes to our past students, past staff, our friends and supporters going back to the early days of the Brighton School of Art in the nineteenth century and looking forward to the developing careers of our more recent members.
Building upon the research compiled in 2009 for the the Faulty of Arts' anniversary book these webpages give a selection of those lives and events that have made this a special place in the history of arts and education in Britain.

Kate graduated in 1985 in Graphic Design and Illustration BA(Hons). She realised very quickly after leaving college that she didn't want to use her artistic skills to make a living.
"There is something about the light, freedom and openness of the college that makes Brighton a different place to any other. Its proximity to London and the internationalism of the young community give it an energy all of its own. I am proud to have worked there"
Illustrator Andrew Restall worked from 1964 for the Post Office designing stamps and building on an existing interest in typography and printing processes. From 1975 to 1990 he ran the illustration option of the BA (Hons) Visual Communication course at Brighton Polytechnic.
