Graduate Testimonials:
"I want to thank all my lecturers at Raffles for the guidance and understanding you gave us all as students and as friends during the time we spent studying Graphic Design. The training I gained has been invaluable, and has given me a firm grounding to start my career. As you know, I am working at Saatchi & Saatchi Advertising down here at 'The Rocks'. It's an amazing place to work. I've been doing everything from Mac operating and designing to illustration and storyboarding. The culture and people here are what really makes this place standout from the pack though, being a generally young crew, everyone seems to flow on the same vibe, it's something you have to witness to appreciate."
- Jonathon, Junior Art Director, Saatchi & Saatchi Advertising

"After completing the Certificate II in Art and Design at Raffles, I enrolled in the Fashion Design Diploma course. During my training, I not only learnt how to design individual garments but an entire range. The course required students to do work experience and I was fortunate to be offered one day a week working with Akira Isagawa. This led to full-time employment after completing my studies. At Akira Isagawa my role is to assist the patternmakers in creating unique patterns for the four collections produced each year which appear in the major fashion shows in Australia, Tokyo and Paris. I love my job."
- Akane, Junior Patternmaker, Akira Isagawa
