Success Stories

“I am a career switcher, having changed track from a headhunter to video productions. Existing courses in the market were either full-time or virtual learning types that did not meet my requirements. The FMDS multimedia course marries visual design thinking with practical curriculum in video and motion graphics production, which was an advantage. I also had plans to start up my own media design agency, and the FMDS message of training designpreneurs fitted nicely with my personal goals.”  –  Zach, (Singaporean), joined FMDS in 2015
