Former Student Hanna retraces her digital journey back to Borders College

Hanna DavidsonHanna Davidson, a former Borders College student, has come back to where it all began, joining the E-Learning team in the role of trainee E-Learning Technologist. 

Hanna, from Edinburgh, studied HNC and HND Visual Communications at Borders College from 2014 before going onto Heriot-Watt School of Textiles to study BA Fashion Communications. Hanna is currently completing her MA in Communication Design at Robert Gordon University.

Delighted to be working with the College, Hanna commented:

“Studying HNC and HND Visual Communications at Borders College gave me the opportunity to develop digital skills while developing in more traditional art forms such as illustration and other art mediums. During both courses, the design briefs allowed me to explore many different creative and digital skills while maintaining the requirements of the project brief. Projects such as typography and graphics, creative industries and sustainability gave me the opportunity to study different areas of the design process and industry. 

“The project briefs followed with an HNC and HND graded unit which gave a real-life insight into the industry, allowing me to progress onto Fashion Communications at Heriot-Watt. Though studying fashion communications, the skills learned and gained at Borders College were easily transferrable and adaptable to my university degree. 

“Borders College allowed me to develop and progress both professional and personal practice. The College really allows you to be yourself and everyone is helpful and supportive. 

“Since graduating from Heriot-Watt I have developed an interest in digital technologies and how they can help in many different ways. I have experience in graphics, photography, film making, social media content management and creation, publication and web creation. I am delighted to be in the on the role as trainee E-learning Technologist at Borders College bringing a design background to the E-Learning team.“
