Freelance Graphic Designer
Why did you choose Shillington?
I chose Shillington for a few reasons. Firstly, I was able to study part time while still working full time. It was definitely intense at some stages throughout the year trying to manage both but absolutely do-able. I really liked the idea of being able to finish the course within 9 months. Also, the student work coming out of Shillington was wildly impressive and I wanted to learn those skills too!
What was the most surprising thing about studying part-time at Shillington?
I think the most surprising thing was how much I learned in such a short span of time. InDesign, Illustrator and Photoshop seemed very complicated at the start of the course and by the end most of it was second nature.
How did you feel celebrating at the Graduate Exhibition?
In a few words: ecstatic, tired and extremely proud. The lead up to the grad exhibit and finalising portfolio was hectic—not much sleep, lots of hours on the computer refining work and lots and lots of coffee. It was so amazing to see my classmates portfolios and the progress that everyone had made throughout the course.
To think 10 months prior I had literally never opened Photoshop, Illustrator or InDesign I was really proud of the work I had accomplished during the course. When you put the time in it’s amazing what you can learn in such a short period of time and I think that’s a testament to the course structure at Shillington.
