AIT has a great community of people

Well, I’ll just mention my main one and that is: AIT has a great community of people. That makes it easy to get into things and make friends, who all have a love for doing creative things. That makes you feel more positive.

Teachers are great!

The college’s students are what makes us a community. We all know each other, and we are all close. The teachers are what sums it all up, making us feel welcome in class and allowing us to further develop our educational skills.

A strong focus on the digital side of art

I chose AIT because you’re treated like an individual, instead of the way large universities treat students like numbers and statistics. It also has a strong focus on the digital side of art, which is rare in art schools.

Choosing AIT as a place to study is one of the best things I ever did

Hello, I’m Damar Kahuripan from Indonesia. I’m a graphic artist/designer during the day, and a philosopher during the night. Just joking – I’m honestly a full-time graphic artist/designer.
However, that is actually what I do most of the time as a designer. I’m not just responsible for creating a design, and also the idea behind it. Maybe I’ll only create one picture, design or logo, but if it’s meaningful there will be a thousand pictures, designs and logos behind that finished product. I am everything you want from a designer: I work odd hours due to lack of sleep but I am full of energy, hyperactive, creative and in love with everything I do.
 Opportunity is one of the reasons I chose AIT. They have a lot of industry connections, and people with the same goals and ambitions as you. AIT also gave me a chance to explore myself and my interests. They taught me principles and skills that were industry-relevant, not just cool things I wanted to learn. By the time I decided to go for my Masters at COFA UNSW, I was well prepared, as I had already learned the basics and more.
Choosing AIT as a place to study is one of the best things I ever did. It is something I will cherish for the rest of my life.

Job Prospects - After I graduated from AIT, I used the skills and portfolio I had developed to gain entry to COFA UNSW for a Masters of Digital Media. Here, I had an opportunity to show my final animation work at the 2013 COFA Annual Screening, and also spent my time working as a freelance graphic artist/designer. I love this job, because it allows me to explore myself through art, and freelancing gives you a lot of freedom to do what you want.
I mostly do design, animation and video work for clients from a range of backgrounds, including well-established companies and bands looking for a chance to make it big.
AIT allowed to me to do what I love and gave me a sense of belonging. That make me feels great.

School with a friendly and familiar environment

I am Lorenzo Nistri from Florence, Italy. I started from a printing background and moved slowly into filmmaking. I’m an eager learner, and I’m always after a way to improve myself. I’ve been developing a lot of different skills in multiple approaches to visual communication, specialising in graphic and videos. This led me to work in various roles in different companies. Before finishing AIT I was already working in my actual job, I have been employed as Graphic Designer and Video Editor and I always freelanced in jobs of the same nature. Hopefully this path will bring me to expand my skills and knowledge. AIT is a boutique School with a friendly and familiar environment. I chose AIT because I wanted an education that wasn’t unidirectional, learning skills in different areas of the multimedia arena. AIT introduced me to Filmmaking and made me realise that I didn’t want to be just a Graphic Designer.

The right place to start your dream career

I used the skills I learned at AIT to gain entry into a Masters of Animation at the University of Technology Sydney. I now choose to work as a freelancer because I enjoy the freedom that goes with picking your own clients and work hours. I do illustrations, designs and animations for different companies across different media platforms.

Feel free to check out my work at www.strangekanga.wix.com.

I am also currently working as a designer and animator at Park My Van. In my role I create designs and short animations for advertising and branding purposes. It make me so proud to see my works being published and used in a real world business. Knowing that I can apply skills I learned from AIT anywhere I want makes me feel incredibly amazing.

AIT is definitely the right place to start your dream career. Unlike the other universities, AIT offers fast-track courses that lead you on the right direction in a short period of time. I got into a Masters of Animation at UTS after completing courses at AIT.

This lead me to my current position, which is the greatest thing that has happened in my study journey. Choosing AIT is the best decision I’ve ever made.
