Do you have designs on a career?

If you’re dreaming of doing something creative, then look no further than The Gordon. Widely known as a leading art and design institute with a high graduate employment rate, The Gordon has graduates working all over the world.

So what’s The Gordon difference? The answer is REAL experience.

At The Gordon’s Design Centre of Excellence students can take advantage of industry-based design challenges, collaborative learning and cutting-edge training solutions.

“We can teach students the fundamentals of design, teach them creative software programs and give students real client briefs, but at the end of the day, there is no substitute for the real thing,” says Graphic Design course coordinator Jose Rodriguez. “Graphic Design is a competitive industry, and we aim to give our students the best competitive advantage we can.”

The Design Centre of Excellence’s founding industry project partners includes 3iD Architecture, Austeng Engineering, Cotton On Group, and Goop Digital.

The Gordon offers courses in visual arts, graphic design, interior design, and building design, and are now offering past and present students the ability to upskill with a new course in multi-disciplinary design.

The new course will provide opportunities for applied research and industry mentoring, new curriculum and training resources, including four new accredited units of competency.

Wayne Ketchen, Head of Centre – Design and Construction said, “This new course will connect design-focused programs across the Institute, enhance design student collaboration, develop new courses, and, through applied research, strengthen partnerships with industry to lead in the development of the skills required for Geelong to thrive as the first City of Design.”

Stop thinking about the future and start to make it real.
