Keith Kilpin

A FORMER Weston College student –who is now working for Aardman Animations – is advocating the importance of choosing the right qualifications. Keith Kilpin gained a First Class foundation degree in graphic design before landing his dream role at the Bristol animations firm.

The 26-year-old is part of Aardman’s creative team and is responsible for designing games, apps and websites. Keith has already received official credits for a number of high profile projects including the Shaun the Sheep film.

He said: “From an early age I was doodling and creating new things. I started drawing as a hobby and never stopped. “Weston College has helped me transform myself, enabling me to achieve a First Class Honours Degree! The patience and support that I received from my tutors really helped me get the best out of myself. “Working at Aardman Animations is a dream come true.”
