This exhibition is about the role graphic designers in the real world and the difference that their design can make.
Designers do have social and ethical responsibilities. What does it mean to be socially responsible and personally accountable in the field of visual communication? Is it still possible to stand up for what you believe? What is it exactly that you believe in as designers? How do you propose to make a difference? How do you satisfy both the clients and your own creative expectations and personal ethics?
A group of design students enrolled in their final year at the University of Western Sydney and the Academy of Design were asked these questions. Their job as future professionals was to create an informed opinion of where they stand within the design industry.
This exhibition represents the coming together of their individual creative responses as they continue to burrow their way out of the degree in to the real world of graphic design.
