 Katie Hagan

Diploma of Graphic Design

I fell in love with Australia when I first visited the country on a tourist visa four years ago. I realised there wouldn't be a better place to advance my education and marketing portfolio. I’ve previously worked in marketing but my dream job is to own my very own graphic design business. TAFE Queensland is helping me achieve my dreams by developing my understanding of several graphic design programs and by providing hands on training in several different print mediums. My teachers are leaders in their industry and provide practical training giving me valuable knowledge and skills I can use in my professional career.
