  • "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.

    Studying at ECU has totally changed my perspective on what design is.

    I've learned methods that helped me explore different ways to approach my collection, my research and my interaction with other designers and artists.
