Multimedia Design
Corliss studied Multimedia Design at The One Academy.

What is the first thing you do after a big exam?
Hang around outside the exam hall, asking my friends on how they did, and what their answer for certain questions were. Possibly go ice-skating if it’s our last exam paper or submission of the semester.

What was your most memorable moment at university?
Camp! I was involved in organising one of the camps as a game master. Being a game master was not easy, there’s not just the fun level to be considered, but also the budget, safety, space, materials, crowd control, back-ups, timing and the overall package. It was the entire committee and lecturers who made everything awesome. We had quite a few on-site visits. In the end, the greatest rewards were the friendships made and seeing the participants happy.

What are three things someone can always find in your bag/backpack?

  • Water bottle
  • Jacket
  • My notebook (not the computer).

Why did you choose this institution?
Because it’s been around for many years and it’s one of the most reputable design schools in Malaysia.

 Where is your favourite hangout on campus?
Somehow, in classrooms, after lessons. That’s when you can be all loud and catch up with your classmates or learn a thing or two from your lecturers, if they decide to stay.

What would you change about your institution?
To have an actual campus. The environment would be a huge difference. I wish we had an outdoor garden to chill in, or a spacious concourse filled with activities (and freebies!). Perhaps, more parking space so we don’t need to keep a look out for cars. On the plus side, we do have a wide variety of food at the shopping mall nearby.

Who influenced you to choose this course?

What is the hardest subject in your course?
The final year project, because we must decide what we want to showcase in our exhibition with limited budget, manpower, space and time. Since we learned so many things throughout the course, it is just hard to lock down on just one theme and message you want to portray and how you want to portray it, especially if you are fascinated by the many things learnt.

Would you do it again?
Sure, why not! We’ll get the chance to experience all kinds of media, software and hardware throughout the course. No regrets!
