Although Cooke initially studied product design technology, it didn't last long and he was soon attracted to the graphic design course that a friend was taking. "The stuff he was working on appealed to me a lot more, so I started doing local gig posters and band merch, before starting all over again at university, but this time studying graphic design," he smiles.
