Sophie-Ann Pinnell

Sophie-Ann Pinnell is the Design Studio Print Technician at Norwich University of the Arts

Sophie has over 6 years experience as a graphic designer, digital and print. Her role as Print Technician involves being exceptionally committed to student and staff experiences, supporting all matter of printing.

As a member of the design studio technician team Sophie supports students from all courses with various printing and finishing techniques including A4 & A3 printing, large format printing and file preparation for large format printing. In addition to this Sophie assists students with using the Adobe Suite.

After graduating with a degree in Graphic Design from Cambridge School of Art, I first went on to work for an exhibition display company which is where I was first introduced to large format printing. After this I went on to work as a digital magazine designer for a large media company where I specialised in layout design and discovered a keen interest in typography. Here I worked with clients such as; Oracle red bull racing, McLaren, IBM, Microsoft, Google and SAP.

Here at Norwich University of the Arts I am working within the large format digital print room, using and maintaining the large format equipment and liaising with students to reach the best outcomes for their ideas.

I’m proud to be a working parent and when I’m not in the design studio my daughter and I like to get creative with crafting. I like to practice traditional printmaking and I love learning new skills and keeping up to date with the latest technology.
