    My experience

    My Shillington experience was incredible. Every day working on new challenging briefs that taught me specific skills I needed to be a graphic designer but while learning in a way that is identical to what I encounter now, Skills that I use day in and day out I really wouldn't be where I am today without it. Since Shillington I've worked as a designer now for 5 years and loving every second, freelancing for companies like the BBC I couldn't recommend Shillington more.

    Amazing!

    Moving to New York and going to Shillington was one of the coolest / best decisions I have made. The course as well as the connections you make will last a lifetime. 

    Before going to Shillington I had minimal experience working as a designer, and had a dream to become one. In less than a yer from graduating I now work as a design studio I only ever admired.

    The curriculum is so hands on, the teachers are exceptional and every member of the staff cares for you, and conne...

    Shillington NYC - Changed my Life!

    I attended the full-time Shillington course in NYC and it honestly changed my life. I went in with a curiosity for design and the hope that I could find a way to make a career out of it and came out with the exact knowledge and tools I needed to make the change. The teachers are absolutely amazing, honestly, just the entire experience was incredible. I got a design job in under a month from graduating and projects I've made at Shillington have won/been nominated for a few awards. If ...

    As a creative person, I was always interested in design but I never knew how to become a creative myself. I found the course a total life changer it opened my eyes to a creative industry that I had always wanted to be involved in. Shillington gave me the tools and the direction to showcase my creativity, my talented teachers and peers gave me the drive to succeed within the industry

    Life changing!

    What an experience! I started with no technical adobe suite knowledge and a heart full of passion and excitement, and finished with a working knowledge of Adobe Suite, a group of amazing people I can now call friends, a portfolio of work that I am proud of and a creative support network. The course is full on and a lot of hard work, but because I was keen to expand my skillset and push myself to rise to the challenge I thoroughly enjoyed every step of the way. I can honestly say it has b...

    Sydney Shillington Experience 2019

    I attended Shillington College of Graphic Design at the Sydney campus in a full-time capacity which was an exciting decision for me. I completely did a 180 from working full time after many years to studying full time. I was unsure of how it would all turn out but looking back can advise it was well worth diving in and meeting liked minded new friends and entered a new community. We all quickly discovered how hard we would work but it saw us produce a large variety of creative and fu...

    One of the best decisions I ever made!

    I choose Shillington for my design education based on its reputation and flexibility to study part-time. My experience at Shillington was extremely positive and my design skills and confidence in my abilities improved dramatically. By the end of the course, I made the decision to switch to a career in design full-time and found a job one month after graduation with my Shillington portfolio.

    Life-changing design course.

    Through the Shillington design course I changed careers from being a lawyer to becoming a graphic designer in 3 short months. I was proud of my portfolio and was able to get a job and job interviews quickly. It requires hard work and focus, but the teachers and the school back and support you 110%. It was one of the best and most inspiring experiences of my life. Shillington gave me skills and courage to follow my dream!

    Worth it!

    I left Shillington with a broad knowledge of design fundamentals, history, principles and technical skills. The truth is, you can’t learn everything about design in 3 months, but after Shillington, I feel confident in my design skills, my ability to generate creative ideas and most importantly, I know how to ask the right questions and learn what I don’t know yet.
