Advanced-level Design students will showcase their digital design and commercial graphic art work in a new exhibition, Hello, It’s Me You’re Looking For, opening at the University of the Sunshine Coast Gallery at 6.30pm on Thursday 31 October.
The annual student portfolio exhibition incorporates graphic design, animation, illustration, magazine spreads, web sites, digital prints, e-media and interactive CD-ROMs produced by the students over the past three years.
USC Design Lecturer Dr Debra Livingston said Hello would showcase the creative work and broad range of concepts created by USC students who are about to embark on various careers in the creative industries.
“This exhibition provides an excellent opportunity for industry representatives and members of the public to see samples of the work being produced by the latest group of talented designers here at USC,” Dr Livingston said.
“We are delighted to welcome our special guest speaker Peter Florentzos, Director of Florentzos, Design as Strategy to this year’s event.
“Peter is the current National Director and Queensland branch Co-President of the Design Institute of Australia (DIA) and a former councillor and founding member of the Australia Graphic Design Association (AGDA).
“He is one of Queensland and Australia's most accomplished designers.”
Dr Livingston said Sunshine Coast art patrons and owners of Big Kart Track, the Proost-De Deyne family, supported this annual event with awards for the top portfolios.
The Hello exhibition will be on display from Thursday 31 October until Saturday 16 November at the USC Gallery.
The gallery is located at the University campus on Sippy Downs Drive, Sippy Downs. It is open free to the public from 10am to 4pm Monday to Saturday, and is closed Sundays and public holidays.
