Gary impressed the judges with his solid research base, versatility and visual impact. He won a prize package, which included invaluable work experience with design and marketing agency Dynam, which was extended to include a three-month summer placement. “I have always loved drawing and a few years ago I decided I wanted to try and turn that skill into a career. I have really enjoyed the course and working on a number of live briefs involving actual clients has given me a real insight into what it is like to work in the industry, which has been really invaluable. The ourses covers a diverse range of topics including photography, web design, book design, typography, illustration, product and packaging design, so even if you are not 100 per cent sure what you want to do, you get a real flavour of the different career routes.”
