Graphic Designer

Graphic design is everywhere. You encounter hundreds of items that have been created by graphic designers each day. From the cereal box in morning, to the billboard on the side of the road, to the logo on your favourite t-shirt. Designers are able to reflect culture back upon itself using colour, shape, form, and symbolism. This fun and fascinating career path will take you in many different directions, and allow you to work with many other professionals.

Fine Artist

Artists are no longer restricted to working in the traditional mediums of oil paint and pastel. Now it’s all about the exploration of ideas and concepts. To speak simply: Artists Create Art. New media and contemporary art encompasses painting, sculpture, drawing, land art, installation, performance, situations, conceptual art, public art, printmaking, sound art, etc. So artists do a wide range of activities. Artists are often rebellious and “on the fringe”, and as the history of art shows, artists constantly break down boundaries. Art is one of the main components of any culture.

Web Designer

The web is now an ingrained part of our everyday lives, so why not switch from being a passive consumer to an active participant and creator? Web designers are responsible for the look and function of websites that enable us to buy goods, watch movies, learn new skills, communicate across the globe, and create communities online.

Animation Artist

An animator can create worlds that don’t exists, or augment our reality. Work for an animator can be quite varied – from big budget blockbusters, to TV commercials, to branding and advertising. It’s all about the illusion of movement, using techniques such as rotoscoping, stop motion, and 3D animation.

Videographer / Filmaker

The videographer captures life as it happens. Working on projects as diverse as commercials, documentaries, live events, short films, training videos, weddings and celebrations, you will shoot, capture and edit productions. Filmmakers are more akin to artists in that they focus on the aesthetic qualities of light and sound across the screen.
