Helena starts new career in graphic design



My journey started at college where I did a NVQ in Art & Design ,I wanted to study Graphic Design but didn’t get the results I needed, because of this my path took a different root. I am now 40 years old and didn’t think I could start a career in Graphic design ,I am located in the Bristol area . I tried to use some of my college skills to help my husband business, as a housewife I had time to learn and self taught myself how to use Adobe programs and web design ,unfortunately this didn’t work out no fault of mine but I was left with all these new skills .

I found myself wanting to learn more and really enjoy it. I made the discussion to get qualifications so I could go back to work full time.

I have a full time job which pays for me to study my dream job and found Creative Design School which offers courses online for graphic design. I hope from these courses to take a degree so I can apply for a permanent position in design.

The online course from Creative Design School really appealed to me because I could talk face to face with my tutor ,just like being at college. The Skype sessions are very useful and so are student examples .

I decided to take Advance Level 3 ,this course was a more advance course and realised I had jumped the basics my tutor offered for me to take a low course, but I was set to do well ,this just meant a little extra studying and my tutor really helped guide me. I would recommend these courses.

I have achieved 100% in all my Modules so far and my tutor is a inspiration. The courses are very easy to understand and my questions or worries are answered quickly. I hope to go on to be a very success Graphic Design.
