My name is Oshain Premaratne and I have just completed my final year of study, majoring in Communication Design at Swinburne University of Technology. Studying at Swinburne has allowed me to pursue my passion for graphic design by further developing my creative skills and transforming my love for design into a career pathway. I am passionate about graphic design, specifically branding, advertising and packaging design.

Outside of design, I work at a movie theatre and play soccer. I’ve always loved the entertainment and sporting industry as it brings people together from all walks of life. The end goal for my design career is to one day work as a graphic designer for Nike as it combines my love for design and sport. Growing up, I’ve always admired athletes and one day hope to work alongside them by designing the shoes, clothing and equipment they use. Having minors in industrial design and advertising can also enable me to design products and work on marketing campaigns.

Swinburne has supplied me with a strong foundation in developing my design skill but I still have a lot to learn. I believe good design can change the world and I'm excited to see what the future holds.
