Why study design?

Work outside the box

“Each project that comes my way is usually very different to the last, so it keeps me interested to be working on different things… I’ve always loved working; when I stop enjoying it then the drive will go away. Coming up with new ideas is the fun part!”

Find your niche

“After a year I decided to follow my passion for photography. I’m not sure I’d have found the documentary form, and my creative niche, if I’d not switched courses… I discovered I like using photography as a visual discourse about a sense of self within place”
