Graduating USC Design students will showcase their work in a future-focused exhibition opening at the USC Art Gallery at 6.15pm tomorrow (Friday 9 November).  

Exhibition X: The future begins now will encompass animation and visualisation design, interaction and UX design, serious games design and visual communication.

The exhibition will be officially opened by USC’s Head of the School of Communications and Creative Industries Professor Phil Graham, while graphic designer and USC graduate Lisa Lonergan will deliver a special address.
 
Professor Graham said the exhibition would enable students to present their professional portfolios and projects to industry representatives and the community.

“Designers play a pivotal role in the way we communicate, interact, learn, and problem solve,” he said. “So our study programs in visual communication, interactive and user interface design and games have been developed with a strong industry focus.

“Students are provided with opportunities to find design solutions to real-life problems and challenges and experience all aspects of the design process.

“They are also encouraged to discover their own creative passions, skills, and style through experimentation in a studio-based environment.”

USC Art Gallery Manager Megan Williams said the annual Design students’ exhibition, which will be on display this year from 9 November to 8 December, was always popular.

Design industry representatives are encouraged to attend the exhibition opening by registering online at www.usc.edu.au/art-gallery

USC Art 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.
