Meet our achieversGraduate using The Hungry Workshop printing presses

After completing a Bachelor of Visual Communication Design in 2010 and working in Sydney as a designer/creative printmaker, Adam Flannery now lives in Northern Melbourne working at the design and letterpress-printing studio, The Hungry Workshop.

He is part of a small team that have managed to pull off the innovative task of printing business cards for Vegemite using the company's very own product as ink.

His role as a printmaker involves everything from printing and designing to consulting with clients and emptying the bins.

He said the degree gave him a good foundation in concept-based design and set him up with the tools needed to progress after graduation. 

"I think Newcastle graduates, being isolated from the big cities, tend to be pretty focused and hungry, whether that means leaving town and going for great jobs or staying put and working on their own projects" - Adam Flannery

"I am currently working for top advertising agency, Euro RSCG Australia in Sydney as an art director. My degree was extremely valuable as it helped me realise my potential and provided me with the creative skills to start my career." - Brooke

"After completing this degree program, I now feel like I belong to a select group of people who understand how and why our world works to shape culture, commerce, communication, art and experience." - Tom
