Studying Graphic Design has been everything I hoped it would be. I remember hearing the term graphic designer being thrown around and having to google exactly what it was. It turned out it was a career that combined all my strengths and interests, essentially creating a job out of my hobbies.

I particularly enjoy print design, and find being able to physically hold the item I invested time and effort into creating very rewarding. Studying graphics has also given me the opportunity to develop my interest in photography, and having this extra skill will be useful in future career opportunities. I also enjoy experimenting with illustration, typography and composition in my work. I’ve learnt how to use the fundamentals of design and translate them across print design, web design and photography making me a well-rounded multi skilled designer.

I love the unpredictability of graphic design, thanks to different briefs I’m now experienced in a range of creative media including, sustainability and contemporary art. My curiosity to learn more makes me very excited for the future.
