Arno Hattingh arrived from South Africa to join us for the IDI Graduation Ceremony 2016. Arno traveled to Edinburgh Castle for a once in a lifetime opportunity, Graduating with a BA (Hons) Graphic Design. We talked to Arno about how he balanced his coursework with working full time as well as how much he learned from the course.
Arno’s Design Work
“As a designer, I do a lot of user experience related work, where I constantly communicate with our users to design the best possible working experience.
“From time to time, I work on freelance projects to improve brands, and my primary objectives are always to look for new ways that a company can market themselves toward their customers, and stand out from their competitors.
“I have a very minimalist approach when it comes to design, and I believe that a design with lots of negative space can often say more than a busy design with lots of graphics. I get bored easily, but to me it’s a good thing, because it allows me to test my limits and do much more each time that I reinvent myself.”
