What others are saying

  • The Open Window School of Visual Communication attracted me to its programme because of its hands on and multi-disciplinary approach. As a budding advertiser, creative or marketer in an evolving omni-channel world, one can no longer think of oneself as being a 'specialist', but rather as 'hybrid' – someone who is able to distinctively apprehend a consumer's interaction with a brand, carefully plan, and finally execute a strategy accordingly across multiple touch points. In many ways, it's the reason the visual communication course at OW is no doubt challenging, but it certainly gives students the solid foundation they need as they enter the fast paced and highly competitive creative communications industry. And it's this exact type of foundation that organisations in the industry are currently looking for when hiring new talent.

  • So nice to have fresh, young talent at this level. We had interviewed designers with 3/4 years work experience that didn’t show as much talent as this [Open Window] student. 
    Craig DuffExecutive Creative Director - Mortimer Harvey
  • “Just a note on how wonderful this theme is! If you are thinking of purchasing, I’d say do it! The flexibility is awesome and the possibilities are endless. I also want to thank SwiftIdeas for the EXCELLENT support with setting things up and answering questions that I had. If you are looking for a theme WITH support, this is it!”

The initiative allows you to make use of your excellent communication skills and interest in the creative industries to become involved on a part-time basis and make money while you are promoting the Open Window. There are different ways of becoming involved but they all require you to market our course offering based on your unique character strengths and networking abilities.  Open Window will provide all necessary training on the product offering, presentation skills and on-going support.

  • My exposure to an international environment and the abilities learnt at Open Window have not only prepared me for this mouldable industry; but have also taught me that one needs to be ready #InAction and to #BeBrave in order to think without constraint.

  • Travis most certainly has grown in leaps and bounds, without a shadow of a doubt! We have seen such tremendous growth in his capabilities, his outlook on life, his potential and his vision for his future prospects and career path. Thanks to all of the lecturers and staff for the role they played in Travis’ life at Open Window.
