For the past 24 years, the International School of Colour and Design have been responsible for creating some of Australia’s finest professionals.

Since graduating many have worked as stylists for magazines, visual displays and promotions as well as colour advisers to the industry for product development.

Each year a number of industry awards are issued to the graduates from businesses that support the institution’s mission to provide quality creative education. Consultants and industry professionals in specialty areas of colour and design application not only advise but develop and teach the courses.

The school’s courses include diploma certificates in creative visual arts specialising in interior style, surface design or visual arts.

Also statistics have said that there is an increasing demand for colour and design professionals. Australians are keen on design and keeping up with the trends and are prepared to pay for experts in the field of interiors and personal styling.

The school has a strong reputation and is the recognised industry institution to train and produce the next wave of Marc Newsons and Patricia Fields to service this growing trend.

A former student, Brad Clulow, said that the lecturers were active leaders in their field, which meant their teachings were based not only on theory but practical and current experience.

Since graduating from the school he has left his job as a screen printer and graphic artist and landscaper and is now managing Villa homewares in Paddington.

I always knew that creativity came naturally to me and the courses at ISCD enhanced that and gave me all the technical knowledge and expertise to support my actions, he said.

The course also fitted into my busy work/study lifestyle which made it relatively easy to manage. My greatest joy is transforming a client’s house into a beautiful home and having them appreciate my efforts.

The school will be holding special introductory workshops on Monday 7 April at 6pm and Friday 11 April at 10am.
