“The most enjoyable elements of the course are the wide range of projects we are given as this allows us to explore different areas of the subject. I also enjoy the creative freedom we have, which allows us to develop our skills in areas we are drawn to. In the future I’d like to be a freelancer and possibly own my own graphic design business. ”
