I believe that creativity in design is heavily influenced by the state of mind of the artist and that us as artists view the world differently.
Creativity is intelligence having fun. Having the ability to solve problems in a visual format is what is significant to me as a graphic designer.
I guess you could say that I started out as a visual artist. Throughout my childhood and teenage years you would never catch me without a pencil or a paintbrush in my hand, spilling out my emotions onto a canvas.
I am a messy person, I love clashing patterns, and I like to draw characters that have multiple personalities and mismatched limbs. It makes sense that my approach to design is experimental and messy.
Design, coffee and travel are my three main passions in life and I strive for my future to involve all three, preferably simultaneously.
I consider myself a creative design thinker, who is optimistic and loves a new challenge. My passion does not lie within one specific area, rather across a variety allowing me to develop a unique combination of skill sets as a designer, illustrator and photographer.
Design has the power of always being different in every project, never being repetitive and constantly requires you to expand your own culture and research ideas within a creative process.
After what felt like a very short three years, I have finally come to conclusion that I am a graphic designer, an illustrator, a visual communicator, a conceptual thinker and an artist.
Over my studies, I have learnt that design has the ability to influence how people think and look at certain things, and being a designer I truly have the opportunity to be creative and innovative.
The idea of putting pencil to paper and letting imagination flow gives me a sense of connection to my surroundings whilst also allowing me to express my creativity.
I’m one of the lucky ones as graphic design not only allows me to do what I love as a career choice, but it also enables me to create well considered design for society.
I have always considered myself a hybrid of intense creative flare, with order and logic. I am an extremely visual person. My brain thinks in images and I have found that I could always better explain myself through shapes and colour.
Coming from Norway I have been exposed to a lot of art and design and as a consequence I love everything associated with design, illustration and photography.
As a designer I constantly challenge myself to produce work that is engaging, thoughtful and innovative. I see composition as independent of medium or style, and consider it as an essential element in all design.
I value the exciting opportunities that graphic design allows me to explore. The process of generating an idea and implementing this in order to create a cohesive design solution is one that I find to be both challenging and rewarding.
In my time before graphic design, I dabbled in medicinal chemistry, chased countless winter seasons across the globe and poured thousands of beers.
As a graphic designer, I believe developing innovative solutions while maintaining a professional quality is important. Graphic design is not just about the end product, but the ideas, the thinking, and the process behind the final outcomes.
Graphic design is more than just a career choice for me; it is a way of life. If I am not creating design solutions, I am thinking about design, or taking photographs, or singing my heart out, or even doing all of these at the same time.
Campaign design is a major strength, particularly call-to-action campaigns. At the heart of this is an understanding of the central role that type and photography play.
Design has always been the perfect outlet for my need to constantly change and adapt. New processes, techniques and technologies excite me and, I’m not afraid to admit I’ve read more than one book about grid systems.
Creative thinking and developing innovative solutions is my passion. As a designer, my main drive is being able to create new and engaging solutions, constantly striving for that original idea.
Throughout my time at university and through traveling and studying abroad I have developed a strong social opinion, particularly surrounding global issues.
Graphic Design, the rational practice of communicating ideas through a range of visual mediums to specific audiences to achieve planned outcomes – or at least that is my definition.
Hi, my name’s Georgia and I am passionate about all things design. I believe that there is more to it, than meets the eye and I aspire to use my creative, design skill set to change the world.
My connection with design is a somewhat love/ hate relationship. The whole creative process of discovering a brilliant idea at the most random time and place is the biggest thrill.
I believe that if you can change the way you think then you can change the world. Creating logos and strong communication design campaigns are my thing and I’ve recently found a passion for photography.
I believe good design to have the ability to engage with mind, spirit and body. Real life experiences have shaped my appreciation and practice of graphic design and it is my ambition to practice design for the packaging and publishing industry.
As part of the creative arts degree, studying graphic design has given me the privilege to work alongside many wonderful undergraduate and industry-experienced designers.
I love design with tiny little details and intricate pieces that are hidden in a larger work, like pieces of breadcrumbs that form a bigger, mysterious fairy tale. Complexity is my friend.
I have a passion for piecing together technical imaginative complex compositions through photo montage and digital manipulation.
Graphic Design gives me the freedom to express myself creatively whilst creating beautiful and practical works. Design is a great passion of mine and my dream is to make a successful career out of it.
As a visual communicator I have a love for quirky illustrations, old time-photography, and handmade-inspired typography as my signature style along with great attention to detail.
I picture the design process as an endurance race, where the body and mind is taking it’s toll, you endure to ensure you have pushed yourself enough to get to that finish line.
I wish I could do everything creative. I’m one of those people that have boundless ideas and get muddled up how to get them out.
I am inspired by minimalistic, stylized and reductive communication design. I love simplicity and the way an important message can be communicated without the need for complexity and embellishment.
I have a deep appreciation for minimalistic design being one of the most effective forms of communication in graphic design.
My career has started at graphic design startup Canva, whilst still studying at University full time.
My passion is corporate identity design and branding. A brandmark is capable of encapsulating so much, and continually absorb new meaning as it evolves with the organisation it represents.
My desire to create drives my experimentation with audio-visual media. I employ a range of image platforms: digital and analogue video, film, still photography, and sound design to create works.
The moving image is my medium. I enjoy expressing narrative in a unique way, whether these are real stories or fictional.
I am a photographer dedicating my final semester to combining two great interests of mine:photography and mental health.
I produce work that provides an intricate sensory experience playing on the potential for digital media and specifically digital photography to explore the lack of ‘essential difference between illusion, perception and hallucination’.
I am a filmmaker and actor working with diverse genres focusing on drama, horror, fantasy, and exploitation.
I have an obsessive interest in mythology, spirituality and folktales that have the power to dictate our choices be it through our intrigue or fear.
I began my study with a passion for editing and a keen interest in post-production processes. My practice has evolved from a simple enjoyment of these techniques to an appreciation of what they can bring to my artworks.
With a passion for the camera, my practice explores the film and video medium, and its strength in conveying meaning through audiovisual means.
I enjoy developing works that explore the convergence of media, technologies, and their impact on social identities. While principally interested in digital media, I work with both digital and analogue forms.
My work is characterised by a spirit of ongoing invention and experimentation with emerging media technologies. I reimagine human computer interface design to create playful and accessible immersive experiences.
The spontaneity and fearless experimentation that characterizes childhood play motivates and shapes my practice.
Digital media such as graphic design, photography, animation, film, special effects extra are all my passion in life. These fields are all so exciting, intriguing and filled with inspiration!
I am interested in documenting people’s lives with a special interest in exploring their hobbies, skills and passions.
I am concerned with exploring life generally, but in particular, contemporary cultural and socio-economic issues related to globalisation and the digital age.
Using a combination of film, animation and 3D modelling, my works present the audience with other-worldly experiences that are unobservable in the physical reality.
I am a photographer and filmmaker working in both digital and celluloid forms. I draw inspirations from travel, culture, and music.
Since my youth I have always valued communicating in creative ways which has led me to embrace my role as an audio visual editor. Exploring the visual world with an open mind has allowed me to bring a wealth of multimedia knowledge to my practice.
I am a filmmaker and media artist whose work explores psychological concepts, interpersonal
dynamics, our relationship with technology and its role in society through the guise of science fiction
and dramatic storytelling.
I find beauty in the most peculiar things. The film and photographic media provide me with a platform to capture sights, sounds, and meaning.
I have always loved science fiction and animation, genres that have always been at the forefront of pushing cinematic technique and technology. Through the wizardry of the word and the camera those genres opened onto worlds of possibility beyond the extant.
As a video & motion graphics editor, 3D modeler and graphic designer, I am often presented with creative problems, and enjoy solving them in multiple ways.
I think the most compelling aspect of being an artist is the capacity for imagining and expressing visions through various mediums. I have been fascinated with dreamers – being one myself, dreaming has allowed me to imagine the world in multiple ways.
My works comprise of natural and man-made materials exhibited as installation. Elements of nature such as moss, snails, organic inks, and fire, are used to create immersive environments.
My experimental paintings are made with printing ink and plastic layered over acrylic panels. Sheets of inked plastic are overlaid to simulate colour glazing.
This work concerns my search for how to depict and achieve clarity of mind through art making. I draw upon Post-Minimalist approaches, abstraction and explore materiality by paring-down an artwork’s content to reveal its formal clarity.
My art practice involves an extensive investigation and exploration of the material qualities of textiles. My major artwork expands the function of lace and embroidery beyond their traditional use.
Migrating to Australia at the age of two I had to adapt to a new lifestyle, new art, music and literature. This cultural shift has had a significant influence on my thinking.
I have always been fascinated by the arts. I think it has something to do with the thought processes and ideals that different artists have about the world.
In my paintings I use subtle tonal transitions to explore somewhat romantic aspects of human existence. Large-scale portraits create a sense of intimacy while dark tones suggest an ominous sense of unease.
My work examines the visual analogies between contemporary media and the formal qualities of Colour Field painting. In doing so, I repeat coloured pixels in arrangements that disturb the usually expected sense of illusion and depth in classic paintings or images.
My sculptural practice focuses on three key processes: pattern development, repetition and consistency. Materials (such as wood, steel and wool) are processed and manipulated in some way using a repeated technique.
My work investigates the notion of beauty and time through the exploration of pressed flowers. My current work combines these flowers with hand-stitching and text.
My work questions perceptions of beauty and the grotesque in relation to popular culture and body politics. By aggressively applying paint over glossy photographic imagery, I emphasise the utterly false nature of the idealised female figure in the mass media.
My visual practice primarily concerns the creation of imaginative “worlds”, through the construction of fantastical locations and strange characters.
The figures in my major work Hebel, are painted on plastic bags and appear to occupy themselves with vacant activity, ignoring their fading. The plastic bags contain fleeting breaths that whisper nuances of ‘hebel’ through the text.
My sculpture and video practice draws on memories and experience as a registered nurse to explore concepts of feminism, gender, the body, and mental health.
My work is based around notions of earthly and spiritual landscapes and utopias, and the intersections between the macro and micro.
I enjoy using a variety of different materials and appreciate the way these materials influence my process. My intention is to use art to raise awareness of issues I am passionate about and to not restrict my work by addressing a gendered audience.
My work investigates psychologically altered and disrupted states. I am particularly interested in the ways in which the theme of schizophrenic hallucinations and paranoid delusions may be suggested through text.
Four Sisters in the Sky, is a series of objects created by weaving fencing wire and other materials. The resulting works resemble Australian Indigenous utility items such as handcrafted coolamon, fish traps, baskets etc.
Formal elements from these graphic images, such as strong black line and intense colour are appropriated in my work in scenes in which figures appear colonized by dense and intricate grotesque forms.
I am interested in exploring the movement and fluidity of time in contrast to the stillness of waiting. In my work I have used countless numbers stamped with ink onto a door as my canvas.
I enjoy working across diverse visual art practices. I am particularly passionate about drawing, photography, textiles and watercolour.
The intention of my working process is to reveal narratives that I find hidden within existing objects and materials.
My art practice consists of painting, printmaking and photography. Through these mediums I particularly focus on portraiture.
In the series Function Cut (Working title), tools are cut, welded and otherwise generally distorted beyond their use.
My current practice investigates the alchemical capabilities of natural dyes. Whilst my work draws upon both scientific and traditional approaches to create impressions on fabrics, paper and wood, the process also involves a component of uncertainty or even magic.
Drawing from personal experiences as a second-generation migrant, my work Bust considers culture, identity, and notions of authenticity.
We live in a world where physical perfection is presented as ideal. My work explores images of female beauty by subverting photographs of models often seen in magazines.
Through my work I have been able to maintain a firm grasp on my mental health and a better understanding of contemporary art. My art practice examines issues surrounding stress, anxiety, minor depression and trauma.
From painting to photography, I create images that restore a sense of wonder and imagination. They are often familiar scenes with subtle aberrations that spark our curiosity.
Coming from a lineage of female craft practitioners, it was natural for me to develop an artistic practice focused on textiles.
My paintings contain patterned surfaces that suggest the knots, tumours and growths of organic structures. Their intricate lines and refined surfaces reflect my interest in creating painterly layers.
My current series of watercolours, Unwanted, proposes ideas of classification and categorisation, through the process of collecting and visually documenting weeds together as unwanted things.
My textile project focuses on the subject of the body in contemporary art. Through this work, I seek to articulate conflicting emotions into tangible visual art forms and to expose the dichotomy between vitality of life and the fragility of my own physical self.
Being comfortable and confident in the medium of photography, I call myself a photographer. However, I also have a desire to learn new art forms and create in a variety of different expressive tools.
