I always believe that it is never too late to chase your dreams. Being a lab technician for five years, I started an unexpected journey in graphic design, an area that I am interested in, but never had enough courage to partake.
From the course, I have gained theoretical and practical knowledge on not only design, but also design thinking, problem-solving, marketing and how to deal with clients from experienced and helpful instructors. After my first year of studies, I got a job as a graphic designer in a branding company. From working and learning at the same time, my skills improved a lot. All my instructors gave me lots of support and more importantly, encouragement whenever I ran into problems, whether it was a specific problem or a career decision. I was able to apply the knowledge I learnt from school in my daily work and at the same time, gain work experience as an independent graphic designer.
After graduation from the HKCT Professional Diploma in Graphic Design, I resigned from my job in the branding company to become a full-time mum, but I took some freelance jobs, which really made my daily life busy and exciting. I really think that the Professional Diploma will help those who are considering a career path in graphic design or who want a taste or understanding of what graphic design is about.
