With the establishment of the Certificate III print apprenticeships now well underway at Holmesglen Institute in Melbourne, the focus on print has spread to fellow students with groups from the Institute’s Graphic Design, Interior Design and Fashion courses set to spend time at the industry’s leading show, PacPrint 2017, next week.
Robert Black, who is the program manager for Printing in the Design, Media and Art Department at Holmesglen Institute’s Faculty of Business, Design & Information technology, says over 150 students from these related disciplines are expected to attend across the four days of PacPrint.
“We’re excited to be bringing the students from these three disciplines to the MCEC to see what the world of print has to offer,” he said today.
“These courses all have key linkages to the print sector and PacPrint is the perfect place for these students to learn more about the scope and possibilities of print as it relates to their chosen vocations.
“Some students will have a very broad interest across all areas, including what we might call ‘traditional’ commercial print, digital technologies, marketing collateral and sign and display work, while for others, their main areas of interest will no doubt lie more towards textile printing, interior products and the like.
“For all of them, however, PacPrint will be an enormously valuable opportunity to learn how they can leverage the power of print in their future careers – and they’re certainly very keen to see it all in action at the show next week.”
PacPrint 2017 will be held at the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre from 23 – 26 May inclusive. If you have not yet registered to attend, take advantage of easy online registration at www.pacprint.com.au
