'80 and Not Out!' - A community project ; a collection of eight personal interviews compiled by Bettina Guthridge, designed and illustrated by Liz Wilson.
It's no wonder Melbourne-based fledgling graphic designer Liz Wilson landed her dream job at Ortolan graphic design studio within 8 months of finishing uni! I mean... just look at her beautiful work! (Most of what you see here is Liz's uni folio work, along with some personal projects.) Is it not seriously gorgeous?
Whilst in her final year of uni, Liz participated in the Craft Victoria careers event Making Out: Speed Dating, in which recent graduates have a chance to meet with industry mentors. Here Liz met Ortolan principal (and Michi Girl creator) Chloe Quigley (who is, btw, ridiculously lovely). Liz was later offered an internship at Ortolan... and soon after found herself on the payroll as Ortolan's junior graphic designer! Yippee! What an inspiring little success story!
...But Liz's talents are not limited only to graphic design and dream-job-landing(!!) - she also makes stunning ceramics! (multi-talented or what?).
Liz also has a truly gorgeous blog, and there is a great little interview with her over here at the Craft Victoria blog!
Love your work Liz!
