ARTS AND DESIGN SUCCESS STUDENT PROFILE

TUTOR PROFILE

Ashley Campbell Diploma in Fashion Design (Level 6)

Wayne Doyle Tutor Diploma in Arts & Media (Graphic Design)

Diploma in Fashion Design student Ashley Campbell is hoping to do one better at this year’s Hokonui fashion awards. Last year Ashley’s garment was placed second in the denim section, “it took me three months of preparation and seven pairs of used jeans to make the garment.” This year Ashley has created a full length jacket and dress to enter the competition which is held in July in Gore. “I was completing a business programme with Aoraki and was looking through the prospectus. The fashion programme really jumped out at me.” Ashley is happy with her change of study direction and completed the Diploma in Fashion and Design (Level 5) in 2010. This year she is enrolled in the Diploma in Fashion Design (Level 6). “I had a bit of sewing experience before I starting the Diploma, but have learnt a lot about the design process of creating a garment from start to finish.” Aoraki Polytechnic’s annual ‘Pose’ fashion show is a further exhibiting opportunity Ashley is looking forward to, “it’s another great chance to showcase our work”. Pose is held in October at the Timaru campus and is organised and coordinated by the diploma students as part of their assessments. Ultimately Ashley wants to work in the fashion industry designing and creating garments, “I know it is a tough industry to crack but I’m excited about a career in fashion.”

When it comes to graphic design Wayne Doyle knows a thing or two. He should do, he has over 25 years experience. Wayne has taken the skills and knowledge he has gained over the years and is now passing them on to his students. The Diploma in Arts & Media (Graphic Design) students get to finetune their creative skills using industry-focused techniques, and the latest technology including Photoshop and InDesign. “By the time students complete this course, they will be ready to walk straight into a design job,” says Wayne. “Students learn all aspects of art and design from Photoshop manipulation, brochure design and digital illustrations, through to creating logos, cartoon characters and advertising campaigns.” “There seems to be a constant demand for well-trained, versatile graphic designers and our goal is to make sure our students have the edge.” Wayne Doyle is an award-winning artist having published three children’s books including the top selling “My Grandmother Knows Everything.” He was also recently a finalist in an international multimedia competition which earned him a trip to Hong Kong.

“By the time students complete this course, they will be ready to walk straight into a design job.” Wayne Doyle
