Some of the Possibilities for Life after CATC

  • Interior Designer
  • Colour Consultant
  • Interior Stylist
  • Interior designer or decorator for: decoration consultancies; furniture, furnishings and fabric suppliers; furnishing departments in retail; shopfitters.

Recognising that I had a great passion and interest for Interior Design and the constant encouragement from lecturers. The lecturers were always there to provide support and tackle questions I had.

I launched my own business, The Eclectic Creative Studio in June 2014 after a successful freelance career since graduating from CATC. I saw a real need for a comprehensive design practice that could provide a range of design services, such as branding, interior design as well as styling and photography.

Be organised and prepared that the full time study is intense, so make sure you have good support around you and pour all of your time and effort into the course as hard work, certainly pays off.

Jessica's Work

I loved that I was able to share this experience with such an interesting and diverse group of personalities, of all ages, who I look forward to seeing out there in the design world. There was an incredible amount of creative talent all in one room.

I am now working with Interior Designer Lisa Christie. I am able to work on a number of different projects, assisting with everything from presentation boards, to scheduling, and sourcing. I am really enjoying being able to work outside of an office. In this roll, I’m able to draw on years of research from my love of Design, Interiors, Architecture, and travels to incredible places filled with interesting and exotic visual stimulation.

Be passionate about what you do. Go with what really excites you and people will see that in your work.
