A few words from the students

Medium ravey

Hyper Island teach you to think fast and act faster

Throughout my two years as a Digital Media student, I realised that great ideas sometimes comes from nothing, but most of the times comes from hard work and focused ideation. An idea has always been thought before, but a good idea goes nowhere if it stays in your head. It’s the first of the 3 elite schools I have attended that taught me that carrying around the toolbox isn’t enough.
