Students Sophie Robertson, Samantha Cable, Katie Chrystal, Filipe Oliveira and Will Winter Irving yesterday celebrated the completion of their two-year portfolio course in December.
Each student has a success story to tell. Winter Irving, who scored the school’s ‘top dog’ award, is working as a junior art director at R/GA after completing an internship in New York.
Cable was hired as junior copywriter by Leo Burnett on her return from internships in San Francisco and Hamburg. Oliveira who last week returned from studying at the New York and Berlin schools is in discussions with future employers.
Two Students started new businesses. Chrystal’s business hand brews and hand pours soy wax candles from a small candle studio in Sydney.
Robertson’s design studio creates custom silk and chiffon scarves that sell from London to Sydney and the Maldives.
Chrystal spoke for all Students when she summed up her experience, saying, “We had a wonderful experience at the school. To learn the latest skills and knowledge directly from the’ horse’s mouth’, ie the industry teachers, was awesome. They pushed us and helped us each individually to achieve our dreams.”
“My two years at MAS inspired me to become an art director for myself, developing my own businesses and continuously learning to solve problems creatively.”
