After completing a Graphic Design course Callam wanted to hone his skills and become an Art Director in Advertising, he enrolled in the Diploma of Advertising at Macleay. Callam completed an internship at digital agency, Soap Creative, and soon after was employed as their Social Media Coordinator. Fast forward 3 years and Callam is now the Social and Content Manager at Infinity Squared.
"I started studying at Macleay because of the short course time, some positive things I’d heard and the fact that the lecturers are all active in their fields of professional expertise. One of those lecturers ended up hiring me."
As a Social Media Coordinator, Callam managed some of Australia’s biggest Facebook pages: Xbox Australia, Nutella and Dare Iced Coffee to name just a few. He also worked with the creative team on content for the pages, as well as on other big projects that came through the agency.
“Some of my best memories are being able to work with lecturers each day at Macleay. There’s a level of collaboration and feedback in the classroom that would be hard to find anywhere else.”
One of Callam’s most impressive projects while he was at college was to create a social media campaign about his dog Poncho. Click here to check it out.
