Founder & Creative Director, Par Vous Designs
Ina Estrada studied at Shillington New York
Where are you from originally? What were you doing there before Shillington?
I’m from the tropical side of the world, born, raised and still living in Manila. Prior to Shillington, I took a leap of faith, ditched being an Investment Banker and tried out freelancing brand identity consultancy.
Why did you decide to apply for the M-1 Student Visa and study at Shillington New York?
I knew my self-taught skills were not going to cut it. To be considered a better design thinker, I knew I still needed to get some sort of education even if it’s just for a term. Luckily, I met a fellow Filipino who told me about Shillington – as she just came back from the most rewarding 3 months of her life.
What would you say to someone considering studying at Shillington?
Shillington has been one of the best investments for myself and for my country. I can now confidently explain and deliver in-depth branding solutions to business owners and clients of all ages. Not only has it been easier to collaborate with other artists and companies, it also has been easier to team up with media companies to provide online content to influence others to fervently work hard to be a future builder of the world through design. I am now pumped up more than ever to make the Philippines a design savvy country, one brief at a time.
