World-class education needn't take forever.
It should be well planned, continually adapted to the times and presented by passionate professionals. That's what happens at Shillington School and we have the records to prove it. Our students are taught by outstanding designers and are getting top design jobs. Starting with no prior experience they graduate with a professional portfolio and an in-depth knowledge of the design programs.
Our objective is to create a positive and inspirational learning environment where students are taught relevant industry skills, ensuring they have the best possible chance of employment as a graphic designer or to further the careers of those already in the industry.
Shillington Graphics, the Sydney-based design studio that preceded the Shillington School of Graphic Design, was founded in 1989 by Andrew Shillington. As an employer, Andrew sought to hire talented young graphic design graduates but found it increasingly difficult to find those with high-end computer skills, a practical knowledge of design theory and could meet challenging deadlines. It soon became apparent that students leaving schools and universities were not adequately trained in today's world of computers and design software. And so Shillington School was born.
It is evident by the number of graduates that find high quality employment in the graphic design industry of Shillington's success. Shillington runs computer based graphic design courses in Australia, the UK and now in the USA. The emphasis is on training employable graphic designers who can confidently take a brief, efficiently use industry standard software and produce quality design solutions to a tight deadline.
