Designer in line for graduate award
WHEN Sarah Glanville finished at Assumption College four years ago, she had no doubt in her mind she wanted to kick off her career in her home town of Warwick.
And since graduating Ms Glanville has been working as an apprentice graphic design artist at printing firm Creed and Lang.
Now, just months from completing her apprenticeship, Ms Glanville has been nominated for the Litho Graphic Institute Queensland graduate of the year.
"I'm a Warwick girl through and through," she said.
"I've always enjoyed being creative and have always been interested in the industry in terms of magazine and design so that is what drew me to graphic design," she said.
"I studied through the Southbank Institute of TAFE and it was my teacher that nominated me for the award.
"I was very impressed when I found out."
Ms Glanville said she had no plans to leave Warwick after finishing her apprenticeship at the start of the next year.
"I have always wanted to own my own drag racing magazine though," she said.
"But with industry going the way it is I don't know if magazines will be around for ever."
If Ms Glanville is dubbed winner of the award later this year, she will be rewarded with a $1500 study scholarship.
"I would love the chance to get to do some web design, as the internet is the way things are going," she said.
During her time at Creed and Lang Ms Glanville said she has worked on a number of projects.
"I do a lot of work with Rose City Shoppingworld, which I love," she said.
"I have also been doing wedding invites and stationery, which is fun."
