Rebekah Wilmer-Provan

GRAPHIC DESIGN STUDENT

 

Rebekah started at Whitecliffe in the Foundation Certificate because, although she knew she loved being creative, she was hesitant to decide, straight out of school, which specific direction to take. Fine Arts and Photography were both initial contenders but after the breadth of experience in the Foundation Certificate Rebekah confidently chose Graphic Design saying” It’s the perfect combination – practical, creative and versatile”

Rebekah feels “It is very important to me to be growing, learning and improving.” Studying Graphic Design at Whitecliffe has ensured that her last four years have been just that. Rebekah says “the teachers really get to know you and what you are capable of. I have valued having my opinions questioned as I know it is a good thing. The critique and development have challenged me and pushed to be my best. I think Whitecliffe represents that work ethic.”

Now that Rebekah is getting close to the end of her final year in the BFA she “feels excited and prepared for what is next”

“I hope to get some overseas work experience, I really love design and think it works best when it's used outside of the industry in some ways, more as a problem-solving tool than an aesthetic approach.  But to be honest, who knows, I had no idea what I was going to do when I left school and I'm pretty happy with how it's turned out”
