Hi there. I have a Bachelor of Art and Design from A.U.T. If I’m being completely honest, I wasn’t exactly the best student out there. I worked retail part-time while I was at Uni, and for about 6 months after. I did some small freelance jobs, I did a little bit of work for a local printer/copy centre. Then I got a job as a designer (mainly print) at a digital agency.
I’m pretty sure, now, there’s a bit of an influx of people wanting to be Graphic Designers. In my opinion, it’s an oversaturated market. But with anything, if you’re good at it and you’re good at networking, you can do anything.
