Level 6 - BA Hons Graphic Design

Shane Dunne

Shane, 21 is currently in his second year of the BA Graphic Design degree course at Swindon College. He first started his graphic design studies at another college but wanted to push his qualifications further, Shane explains:

I chose to study at Swindon College as it offered the higher education course, it’s close to home which fits in great with family commitments and is cheaper than if I was to move away and study. When I came for my interview I was impressed with the facilities and how friendly the tutors were.

I’m really enjoying the course, it’s great to be taught all aspects of design including all the latest software, web design and contextual studies.

Alongside his course, Shane is a member of the in-house design studio called Studio 215. Along with other BA Graphic Design students, Shane works on live briefs set by external customers.

The studio is a great way to gain valuable work experience in design. The live briefs are all varied and can range from anything from designing promotional materials such as posters to creating logos. It’s also great to work collaboratively with my classmates as if I was working in a design agency.

After completing his course Shane would like to work within an agency position local to Swindon building his portfolio of work.
