As Campus Manager it’s Tracy’s job to support staff and students to fulfil their potential - she gets a particularly big buzz seeing the students’ excitement when they succeed in turning their ideas into something tangible. Tracy is also responsible for maintaining academic excellence and creating an inspiring, fun place to work and study. She knows just what it takes, having spent four years as a graphic design tutor here prior to this role.
After gaining a Diploma of Furniture Design and a Bachelor of Graphic Design with Distinction, Tracy kick started her career with five years as an Exhibition Designer. She later went on to spend a decade as Design Director (graphic designer) with Dashwood Design before joining the Yoobee team. Despite her 20 years in the industry, she says she’s still excited by the far reaching effects of design – of how a designer can create something in New Zealand and the effects of it can be seen all around the world. The influence of design cannot be underestimated!
So Tracy, what’s the best piece of advice anyone has ever given you?
“Don’t let the noise of other people’s opinions drown out your own inner voice.”
