With a background in Visual Arts, I was uncertain what I wanted to gain from this degree. Today, my passion lies within illustration. I have been trying to blend my unique style of line work, with my growing design knowledge to form a distinctive illustration style.

What was the reason for you to study visual communications?

In year 12 I took a subject that was similar to Graphic design. I enjoyed the class but felt I could have learnt more. The class provided me with an insight into what design was like and I knew I wanted to learn more.

Ink Design,
Adobe Illustrator

These are my own personal business cards. In my design work I use a lot of ink and brush, so I decided to highlight those three letters of ink in my last name to use as my professional persona.
