Palma Perez - International Student from New York City
Hear Palma's experience as Graphic Design and Social Media Coordinator (Intern) for the Bond Bull Sharks Netball team
"I applied for a placement with the Bond Bull Sharks Netball Team after a social media and graphic designer role opened up as Graphic Design and Social Media Coordinator. My main responsibilities were to create and update graphic templates for professional use on the Bond Netball Team social media (Facebook and Instagram) profiles. Graphic templates included; player profiles to introduce all players and coaches individually (26 players, 4 coaches) for both the Sapphire and Ruby Series, game-day program, flyers and posters to be used and distributed on game days, graphic representation of existing Bond Bull Sharks Netball logo to be placed on team merchandise for sale (tee-shirts/ hoodies) and creating and updating game day countdowns, scoreboards, e-flyers, and announcements to be used on social media.
Many of the skills I have learned throughout my degree were used in this internship. Within the digital media realm, I have gained experience in the many disciplines of digital design and marketing on popular platforms in social media. Gaining experience and practice using industry-standard software like Adobe Creative Suite throughout my degree has fully prepared me for my work with the Bond Bull Sharks Netball team. Developing skills to effectively communicate creative ideas and processes have also been effectively sharpened throughout my degree.
Excellence, Effort, Execution - the cornerstone of what it means to be a part of the Bond Bull Sharks Netball team. Starting with an idea or design and building it all the way through to a usable state to fully and accurately represent the meaning, drive, and intensity of the netball team means everything to me."

Sounds like virtual reality can design better classrooms
Virtual reality can be used to test the acoustics of classrooms that are still on the drawing board, helping students to learn without distractions.
A new study by a team at Bond University used VR headsets to create virtual classrooms, then compared students’ cognitive performance in three scenarios: no ambient noise, typical classroom ambient noise, and ambient noise with acoustic treatments.
