Hear straight from our graduates.
Completing the course at Shillington gave me the confidence to explore creative ideas, not just in graphic design, but how design in general can impact lives and create change.

It’s been 5 years since you left Shillington! Can you tell us about the last 5 years? How has Shillington changed your life?
WOW! That’s flown by! Completing the course at Shillington gave me the confidence to explore creative ideas, not just in graphic design, but how design in general can impact lives and create change.
Thinking back, why did you choose Shillington? What made our design course stand out from the rest?
I had been watching Shillington for a while, probably about 3 years before I signed up. The reason I chose it was it’s flexibility, I needed something that would add to the knowledge I already had. Something that fitted around work and a young family. I chose the part time option and managed to gain clients as I was going along.
Back to Shillington, did you make any lasting connections with teachers or fellow students during the course?
I keep in touch with a few of the teachers and classmates, it’s amazing how time flies and you get busy. But always supporting posts and content when I see it.
What piece of advice would you give to someone who has just graduated from Shillington?
Try not to get boxed in too soon. Explore, experiment find your own style and approach. It’s easy to get distracted by the latest trend! The most important thing in life and work is to be authentic and a good human. The rest usually takes care of itself.
