    Diploma of Graphic Design

    Prior to studying, I was passionate and fascinated about design and the power it had on the world. I knew however that I needed to build my foundations in design thinking (idea generation) and design execution (learning how to use adobe programs) - and this is where Martin came in. Every task we completed was challenging and that is what made my studying experience great – plus it prepared me for life in the real world!

    Diploma of Graphic Design

    I chose to study with Martin because I wanted to attend a course that would get me out in the workplace, sooner rather than later. When I graduated I pretty much landed the job that I am still in today. I am now working for a Graphic Design Studio as a Production and Studio Manager and have been here for 6 years.  I oversee the daily needs of the studio as well as client management. I look after numerous retail clients across Australia and manage their account from start to finish.

    Diploma of Graphic Design

    Martin taught me amazing skills that were directly applicable to my current career. All of the practical learning units in Web Design, Advertising and Professional Practice helped to build my portfolio and secure my graphic design career. I now work as a Graphic Designer for Bamboo Creative, a prestigious Brisbane based creative agency. To be successful in the industry you need to never stop learning and always keep up-to-date with current products, services and software and network where ever you can.

    I really love the small class sizes. It helps me learn better and I actually feel supported by my teachers because I get more personalised support. I'd like to study at uni, and I know Martin can get me there.

And once you have experience, you may even choose to establish your own business and work in a freelance capacity.

For any graphic designer working in a modern commercial environment, knowledge of key software packages is essential for success and career progression.
