Design students showcase their skills
Fourth year students from the UWS Bachelor of Design (Visual Communication) are making their final preparations ahead of the annual graduation exhibition on Tuesday November 25.
The exhibition FINALFINAL.PDF is the ideal chance for students to showcase their creative skills to industry scouts.
Organised and curated by the students at the UWS Rabbit Hole studio, the exhibition will comprise a designated art space to showcase the major projects, Honours works and professional engagements of the students.
The exhibition will showcase a range of branding, visual identity, print, and publications projects, featuring design research, illustration, typography and photography.
In addition, FINALFINAL.PDF includes a sizeable collection ofdigital media forms such as video, web comics, and prototypes for games and mobile apps.
The exhibition has been shaped by the students' experiences in the UWS Rabbit Hole studio, a unique design program created to immerse students in a professional working environment.
The coordinator of the Rabbit Hole studio and Bachelor of Design Academic Course Advisor Katrina Sandbach says the exhibition was called FINALFINAL.PDF to describe the frenetic process where designers constantly rename their working files.
"The design process is incredibly immersive, and especially in the studio context where there's a real driving force pushing you to constantly improve your work," says Ms Sandbach, from the UWS School of Humanities and Communication Arts.
"This year's group of students show a particular talent for video production and user interface design as part of a broader branding campaign strategy, reflecting the increasingly digitalised nature of professional design practice".
The exhibition will be open for one night, on Tuesday 25 November at Dockside, Cockle Bay Wharf Darling Harbour from 6pm, and will be a celebration for industry partners, media representatives, family and friends.
