Miami Ad School Sydney today announced that Sophie Hackett won Top Dog award for her outstanding performance in the school’s inaugural Experience Design boot camp.

Nathan Kwok (pictured) was rated Top Dog by the instructors of the Strategic Planning boot camp. The two boot camps conclude this week with students presenting their portfolio to decision makers of Sydney’s leading advertising agencies.

Hackett was runner up in the scholarship competition for the Experience Design boot camp featured by B&T in December. Made redundant from her position as Business Manager at CX Lavender during lock-down, Hackett is currently interviewing for Experience Design positions.

She said: ‘I was absolutely delighted to receive the Top Dog Award for the XD Boot camp. I had no experience in UX Design prior to this course, so to learn every side of it, from research to ideation to UI and more, made for a busy but thoroughly enjoyable few months. I can’t wait to put these new skills to use, and to see what’s next for me.’

Nathan Kwok, Marketing Manager at Commonwealth Bank: ‘It’s been an epic three months of learning and being monitored by some of the smartest people in adland. Every week hummed along with fascinating content and rewarding work, and I’ve come out knowing 1000x more about how to diagnose, and solve business problems. I know how good the past top dogs are, so I’m absolutely chuffed and humbled by the win.’
