Introducing the 2021 Communication Design Graduates!
This exhibition website highlights the achievements of the 2021 final year students, of the Bachelor of Design (Communication Design) program, at the University of South Australia. It provides a snapshot of their commitment and determination over the past three years—from their first day in dealing with a new unknown environment and learning abstract concepts, to dealing with a pandemic and lockdown—these students have demonstrated their resilience in achieving their best throughout their study. This year’s exhibition entitled Splendere, represents a bright light of ideas and fresh approaches. It celebrates the groups collective sparkle of creativity and the skills they have developed over the last three years.
The discipline of Communication Design is more than knowing computer tricks and navigating complex computer programs. It demands a holistic approach, from considering the needs of the user to finding new ways to visually communicate across boundaries and knowing how to work with others. Throughout their study, our students have worked both independently and collaboratively. They have been involved in a variety of projects, worked directly with industry and design mentors and have responded to each project with, originality, responsibility and professionalism.
The Communication Design program at UniSA, is committed to strengthening our professional affiliations within the design community and industry organisations. We value the working relationships we have with our generous design community to be involved with students, by sharing their knowledge and skills to build our students’ understanding and confidence in design, and to assist in their progress toward their design futures.
This catalogue demonstrates how students have embraced the principles that make a successful designer, by demonstrating the importance for diverse exploration, the value of creative idea generation, and the need for critical analysis and problem solving in response to a variety of perspectives and challenges and taking the initiative both as independent and collaborative designers. Splendere is a display of the exciting contribution these new designers will make to the field of design.
To our final year undergraduates from the Bachelor of Design (Communication Design) program. On behalf of the lecturers and all teaching staff, we wish you the very best for a vibrant start to your creative and professional practice, as you launch into shaping your future as designers.
