A Day in the Life of a Designer

Choosing a creative career can be challenging. You know you have an artistic flare, you know you want something practical, diverse, something to help you think out of the box. The challenge, of course, is the choice, the right place to develop your talent. Fashion, interiors, photography, graphic design, gaming, film and video, print or the web.

This past Saturday, Torrens University held its first ‘A Day in the Life’ creative workshops. Designed to help you choose the right pathway for your passion. With hundreds of students attending across Australia, our design campuses were buzzing. With industry speakers brought in to inspire and workshops seeing students creating mood boards, models, photo imagery, and possible sketches for their flagship collections. Students learned to justify their decision-making and put their learnings into practice. Attendees were confident that the work they produced would be useful for their personal creative portfolios.

Newly graduated Bachelor of Media Design student, Valentine from the Adelaide Campus took one small business owner and attendee through what he loved about studying with Torrens. Whilst not all attendees understood exactly which career direction they would take, hearing first-hand from students should be an essential part of their decision process.

With feedback still coming through to our design campus, Brooklyn who attended Ultimo said, “I loved every bit of it, it inspired me to go straight into a bookstore and buy books on fashion design. It has made me want to choose this path”.

Torrens University is looking at hosting more workshops during the September school holidays in design, hospitality and business career options. To enquire call 1300 575 803.
