Operating under the ethos of Educate, Agitate, Connect, Designworks is inspiring a new generation of graphic designers to produce work of a creative calibre that reflects a sense of true craftsmanship together with a complete understanding of the design process.
Students will learn, through the design process, to develop idea driven design solutions, whilst working to industry standard briefs in a sophisticated studio setting—receiving invaluable feedback and mentoring from industry experts.
At certain times, students are given the opportunity to work on live briefs throughout the Diploma course, giving them fantastic experience taking client briefs and presenting their concepts back to the client.
Students are also given the opportunity at the half way point of the course to be placed with leading design agencies and studios such as Smart Inc, Potato Press, UNIT, and Pluvo one day a week for invaluable industry exposure.
Designworks is CRICOS approved for International students offering full-time design courses.
