What were you up to before Shillington? Why did you want to study design?
Before Shillington I worked in my families building development company. My role as the office manager included the production of advertising for the sale of our developments. I really enjoyed that part of the role and eventually decided it was something I wanted to purse.
You graduated in 2007. Where has your career taken you since then?
After graduating I landed a job within the first month. This enabled me to get a couple of years of studio experience under my belt before I headed out on my own. I’ve now been freelance / running my own studio for 10 years.
What’s your favourite thing about running your own design studio, duosista?
The flexible working conditions. It’s fantastic to be the one in control of your work / life balance. I also like that it gives me time to work on projects for myself.
Any tips for someone thinking of studying at Shillington?
Be prepared to give it your 100%. If you work hard you will have a great base for getting your foot in the door at a design studio.
