Eshé Brown went from working in PR to securing a position in her dream job as a graphic designer at one of Brighton’s most respected agencies, in just 5 months!
“I didn’t expect to learn so much in just 3 months. It’s been an incredible experience meeting all the patrons and learning from their years in the industry – that’s certainly been the highlight of the course for me. I loved the apparel and packaging project – seeing your design on an object really brings the work to life and you feel as though you’re working in a real studio environment. Doing the course has completely changed my life and I am so much happier now that I’ve changed my career. I am doing a role much better suited to my strengths and I wake up every day and I look forward to going to work.”
Where are you now?
After only 2 interviews, I was offered the job that I wanted… Junior Graphic Designer at Pegasus in Brighton, UK, on a starting salary of £30,000, way above the average for this type of position.
In under, 1 year I have now been promoted to Graphic Designer with a substantial pay rise.
Would you recommend the course and Strohacker Design School to prospective students who are interested in a career in design?
Yes, this course is great for people wanting to get back into the workplace, changing careers or moving sideways and wanting to develop a professional portfolio. Having practising designers on the course is inspiring and purposeful.
