Ken Khun

GRAPHIC DESIGN STUDENT

 

Describing his experience in the Whitecliffe Graphic Design department Ken says “I enjoy creative process and experimentation. Studying Graphic Design within a Bachelor of Fine Arts context has been a journey that exposed me to a variety of creative electives and allowed me to explore different areas of interest.” At school Ken took all the creative subjects – design, photography, graphics and textiles, and he always knew he wanted to do something in the creative fields. He says that “the Whitecliffe programme is challenging but the faculty have been supportive every step of the way.”  One of the things he most values about Whitecliffe are “the one-on-one critiques with the lecturers where they have helped me to break the boundaries of traditional graphic design.”

 

Having professional designers and guest lectures are a valuable part of the programme and “the industry internships have helped me to build confidence, network and learn about what it is really like to work in the Creative Industries.”

 

After graduating, “I plan to work in the design industry whether in New Zealand or overseas. The great thing about graphic design is the different avenues it can take you.”
