Michelle So – Graphic Design Year Four

Michelle is the winner of the 2014 Australasian Graduate of the Year Award (AGOTYA)

“I decided Graphic Design was for me because I enjoy the process of problem-solving to achieve something creative and utilitarian,” says Year Four Graphic Design student Michelle So.

There was never any doubt Michelle would choose a creative path in life. She took art classes since age six and all through school her books were carefully crafted exhibits of her creativity.

Now at Whitecliffe she has the freedom and support to further her abilities.

“The Whitecliffe lecturers know my work inside out and give lots of constructive guidance. I love having the opportunity to drive my own projects, fitting them to the type of work I want to do after graduation, which is multidisciplinary graphic design with a balance of conceptual thinking and good design.”

The school’s many awards and scholarships are very motivating, she says. Recently Michelle won the opportunity to attend the three-week Exhibition Design and Curatorial Studies Workshop at Shanghai University.

“It was an interesting experience meeting lots of new people and seeing how their design process differs from our own.”
