Designing a Disney fairy tale
By designing an Emoji inspired by her love for Disney, Bachelor of Design student Dominque Salvatore (pictured) won a life-changing opportunity to visit Disney Interactive in California – with a casual pit stop at Disneyland on the way!
"It was an incredible experience I’ll never forget," says Dominique. "I anticipate it’s only the beginning of what’s in store for me."
