On Sunday (13 March 2022) my Instagram account, cavanaghcreative*, was hacked; through my own fault in responding to a message of help from another acquaintance on Instagram and for not seeking proper outside advice (ie. my IT-expert father) as to whether this message was legitimate or not. It almost certainly wasn’t legit.
I don’t know how, but somehow through interacting with the (as yet unknown) hacker gave them a way or permission to kick me out of my own account and change both the phone number, email address and password; and thus, totally remove any future ability on my part to regain the account.
Up until now these files were available on LinkedIn, but it is time I migrated them here where they are more easily searchable and might help others doing similar courses.
I know how helpful it was for me to see online how others had tacked the same project briefs.
I spent 2 years at Hornsby TAFE, 2014 and 2015, obtaining Certficate III in Design Fundamentals, Certificate IV in Graphic Design and the Graphic Design Diploma. After each semester I put together a PDF of work from that semester.
Certificate III, Design Fundamentals, 1st Semester 2014
Certificate IV, Graphic Design, 2nd Semester 2014
Diploma, Graphic Design, 1st Semester 2015
Diploma Graphic Design, 2nd Semester 2015
Portfolio end-of-year project from Graphic Design Diploma 2015
There they are, the good, the great, and the ordinary, all together as it happened.
I learned a lot from those 2 years, and I am grateful for them and for all the teachers who helped me along the way.
