#304 Mara West
If you’ve been out at all in Leeds over the past 3 years, it is very likely you have encountered Mara’s work. Starting as Head of Design at Leeds Student Radio, she started taking on design and photography jobs alongside her studies. Now freelancing part-time, Mara loves taking on new projects and working with new people. Her favourite projects to work on are community based, and she is one part of the team that runs Leeds Queer Film Festival. She is currently creating graphic content for the 2019 programme. Other recent projects have included visuals for the 2018 Leeds Alternative Pride, artwork for DJ nights and photography for up and coming bands and artists within Leeds.
Since completing her degree in Product Design at Leeds University, Mara is beginning to merge her graphic work with her 3D work and is excited to be learning more about animation. She prefers to shoot film, with her favourite camera being a Bronica ETRS. She has previously shot event photography for Time Warner and is currently working on a zine about Jewish identity.
