Design students to impress industry experts
Soon to be graduates of the University of Western Sydney Bachelor of Design (Visual Communication) are putting the finishing touches on their final works ahead of the annual graduate exhibition on Wednesday 27th November.
The exhibition 'All or Nothing' will showcase the high calibre Honours works, major projects and professional engagements with the aim of impressing industry scouts.
The graduate exhibition is organised and curated by the students, and will feature graphic design, photography and digital media displays. There will be a combination of screen based interactive pieces and print based outcomes. A dedicated space will showcase animation and video footage, and screen based interactive pieces will be presented alongside printed material.
This year, the focus is on the students as emergent designers, whose desire to grow and learn motivates them to strive for success.
"In their final year, the students have been driven to see themselves as the arrow that breaks through the compass of conventions and expectations," says Dr Samantha Edwards-Vandenhoek, Academic Course Advisor, School of Humanities and Communication Arts.
"'All or Nothing' illustrates how the students want to challenge what being a creative professional means."
Students believe 'All or Nothing' is the expression of the risks, choices and paths they are making in their creative futures and have likened the experience of producing the show to "horses running free, birds taking flight and astronauts venturing into uncharted territories".
The exhibition will be open for one night, on Wednesday 27 November, and will be a celebration for industry partners, media representatives, family and friends.
