How to fast-track your new career in graphic design

Starting a new career in the graphic design industry is a big leap. And getting the landing right couldn’t be more important. It’s a matter of your time and money. It’s your future. That’s why you need to know about Strohacker Design School.

Let’s not pull any punches, the design industry is super competitive. To get the job you want as soon as possible, you need the right skills and experience so that you have the edge over your rivals. It’s this reality that is behind Strohacker Design School. I have over 25 years’ experience as a designer, creative director and lecturer, and had the good fortune to earn my graphic design stripes in the company of some very talented people (more about them later). My point is that I have a pretty unique perspective on the design industry and the learning that feeds it. My School and how it functions is built on this knowledge.

But enough about me – this is about you. Changing careers has implications in terms of your time and money – you need to learn but you don’t want to spend too long doing it. Just as you don’t want to be waiting an age to get the work that you want. Going back to the drawing board, quite literally, is a bold move. It’s a critical investment, so the value for money has to be there staring you right in the face. That’s why our commercial-ready full and part-time graphic design courses provide the exact skills that modern design agencies are looking for and post-graduation support to help land your dream design job. I’m talking the practical studio experience, live briefs and portfolio-driven development that will fast-track your career change and get you where you want to be quicker.
