STUDENT PROFILE

MATTHEW GOODYEAR

What are you going to do after college?
Better Brand Agency got in touch with me and offered me and internship, so after CCAD I will be heading there.

Can you tell us something about your course that you didn’t know before coming here? I thought the tutors would be a lot stricter with us and that the course would be quite rigid, but it’s very free.


What’s your favourite thing about CCAD? I’m always around other creative students and I really like the relaxed atmosphere here at CCAD.
What do you enjoy most about your course? I love creating and branding, which is what I’m working on at the moment. This is the only course I really wanted to apply for!
