Rookie of the Year – Winner
Maria Fernanda Rodriguez

Hi! I’m Maria Rodriguez a proud recent Graphic Designer graduate. I’ve been passionate about motion design for few years and I have some experience working as a freelance animator in Colombia and Australia.  I always felt that I was lacking of design skills, so I decided to study Graphic Design at Shillington. Today I can proudly say that those new skills have given me more confidence and made my job a lot easier and fun!

Judges Comments

For me great graphic design has to do what all great art should do; be memorable and evoke an immediate emotional response. These candidates succeeded in this.
Justin Holt
The quality on the works hung well together. When looking at each of these finalists’ portfolio on each project, the set of designs was strong and purposeful.
