Beyond Top Designs
This year we have invited exhibitors from the past two decades to share their professional journeys with us 5, 10 and 15 years after Top Designs.
These former students have built on the skills developed in their VCE subjects to carve out interesting and unique career paths for themselves. Their journeys illustrate the importance of learning and teaching experiences, vocational training and exploration.
Some individuals have ended up in design roles, whereas others have applied their design ethos in alternative industry-related fields. They have gained experience through various channels, whether formalised in scholarship, mentorship and intern programs, or via travel, personal projects and volunteering.
While this cross-section of alumni showcase the variety of exciting and niche career opportunities available, it also emphasises that the same set of values is required to succeed in any field; innovation, dedication and passion.
We hope that these stories will inspire future students in years to come.
