  • "I constantly find myself looking at signs and symbols and thinking, oh, this could be designed better"
    Aimee Chappell
    Aimee ChappellECU Design graduate

    And thinking, "What if we did this?" I was always a visual artist and I just wanted to figure out a way to get a consistent income working in that field.

    Through the units in my degree, especially the Fremantle-based unit, The Happiness Project, I realised it wasn't just about graphic design. For me, it's about design communication, designing systems and figuring out how to help people – asking why are we doing this? Who does it affect? How is it helpful? Thinking with empathy.

    I'd always wanted to help people, but I never thought as a creative that I would find a way to both earn an income and do that.

  • "The best part of being at WAAPA is having the access and privilege of being taught by some incredible teachers, being surrounded by creativity day in and day out and having the space to fail"
    Charlotte Otton

    The arts industry in Australia is benefitting from some very clever, creative young theatre makers. Makers that I am extremely proud to be in the WAAPA alumni pool with.

  • "I wanted the opportunity to work anywhere in Australia as well as overseas"
    Meghann LavertyParamedical Science student

    When I applied for Paramedical Science at ECU, it was the only university in WA offering the nationally-accredited course and I've stayed because of the industry partnerships with St John Ambulance Northern Territory and Falck.

    I really enjoy working with the lecturers; they all have practical experience out on road and within the industry so they can continually educate us, while providing a lot of guidance and support.
