Luke Jenkins – Graphic Design Year Four
“I enjoy Whitecliffe’s collaborative aspect. I think it strongly resembles that of a real working practice,” says Year Four Graphic Design student Luke Jenkins.
One of the reasons Luke chose to study at Whitecliffe was because, when reviewing graduate student profiles across a number of institutions, Luke felt that the Whitecliffe graduates’ quality of work, as well as the diversity of courses they completed during their study, meant they had their best foot forward when it came to finding employment.
Luke is certainly off to a great start himself. He was part of a collaborative project for Urbis Design Day in 2013, along with fellow student designers Leah Surynt and Michelle So, that resulted in them winning the Hewlett-Packard Designers to Watch award.
He says Whitecliffe’s supportive and tuned-in culture meant he had the opportunity to attend the Design Institute’s Best Awards, and the week-long Semi-Permanent creative platform held in Auckland in 2013.
