I think we are in a really interesting time where the way we experience and interact with art and design is changing. Exhibitions are becoming more interactive and immersive. It would be rewarding to work in a field that better connects the public with works of art and design.

I chose to study at Monash because when I was working in design, I found that many of the designers I admired were graduates of the course - and they all loved their time in the Department of Design. I chose Spatial Design in particular because I was keen to gain the knowledge and technical skills from the Monash course to set myself apart from other designers.

The best part of studying Spatial Design at Monash has been the way the course takes a holistic approach to teaching. The subjects and projects in the first year are arranged so you develop good technical skills and gain a solid knowledge in design theory and history that can be applied to creative projects in the studio classes.

While I was working for a small design firm I discovered that many of the designers I admired were past Monash students. They told me how much they loved their time in the Department of Design. That's why I chose to study design at Monash.
