Scoring a new notch in its belt, CATC Design School has produced another award-winning designer. Emily Robertson, a 2014 graduate from the Interior Design & Decoration diploma in Melbourne, has defined herself by winning two Design Institute Australia graduate awards at both the state and national levels.


She took out the DIA Australian Graduate of the Year award (AGOTYA) in the category of Interior Design & Decoration, having qualified for the national round by winning the Victoria/Tasmania DIA Graduate of the Year Award. Emma Fenton, Melbourne's CATC Interior Design and Decoration Program Manager, recognised Emily’s blooming talent and entered her in both the state and national competition.


Before enrolling at CATC Design School, Emily had previously worked as a nurse for ten years; however, she says her passion has always been design. She made a huge leap into the unknown from nursing and has never looked back.

Emily is now working with Interior Designer Lisa Christie (another CATC Design School graduate!) at Lisa Christie Designs on a number of different projects, assisting with everything from presentation boards, to scheduling and sourcing.
