Hear straight from our graduates.
By the end of the course I made the decision to switch to a career in design full-time and found a job one month after graduation with my Shillington portfolio.
Graphic Multimedia Designer, Surf Life Saving Queensland
What were you up to before Shillington?
Before Shillington I was working in Arts Administration for a local charity organisation. Part of my role required me to design invites and marketing collateral for exhibitions.
Why did you decide to study design? Why Shillington?
I was self-taught and lacked confidence in my design abilities. Luckily, work sponsored me to upskill in design and I choose Shillington for my design education based on its reputation and flexibility to study part-time.
What are you doing now? How did Shillington help your career?
My experience at Shillington was extremely positive and my design skills and confidence in my abilities improved dramatically. By the end of the course I made the decision to switch to a career in design full-time and found a job one month after graduation with my Shillington portfolio.
What do you love about working as a creative?
I love working as a Graphic Designer because every day is different as the work varies from project to project. I enjoy finding creative visual solutions to design challenges and working for not-for-profits makes me feel like I’m providing a valuable community service.
