V I S U A L C O M M U N I C AT I O N D E S I G N IN 2013 A NEW STUDY, VCE VISUAL COMMUNICATION DESIGN, WAS INTRODUCED. THIS EXHIBITION SHOWCASES WORKS FROM THE PREVIOUS STUDY, VCE VISUAL COMMUNICATION AND DESIGN 2012, WITH FOLIOS FROM BOTH UNITS 3 AND 4 ON DISPLAY. THE NEW COURSE, HOWEVER, WILL ASK STUDENTS TO ENGAGE IN A SINGLE EXTENDED FOLIO, SIMILAR TO THAT UNDERTAKEN IN THE PREVIOUS UNIT 4.

isual Communication Design examines the way visual language can be used to convey ideas, information and messages in the fields of communication, environmental and industrial design. Designers create and communicate through visual means to shape the everyday quality of life for individuals, communities and societies. Visual communication design relies on drawing as the primary component of visual language to support the conception and visualisation of ideas. Consequently, the study emphasises the importance of developing a variety of drawing skills to visualise thinking. A number of the folios on display demonstrate exceptional examples of observation, visualisation and presentation drawings. Students employ a design process to generate and develop visual communications. This process provides a structure to organise design thinking and is shaped by considerations of aesthetics and functionality, as well as social, environmental and economic factors. Students develop the skills to manipulate and organise design elements, design principles, selected media, materials and production methods when creating visual communications. Throughout the study students explore manual and digital methods to develop and refine presentations.

VISUAL COMMUNICATION DESIGN

WHILE THE FOLIOS ON DISPLAY IN THIS EXHIBITION WERE COMPLETED TO SATISFY ASSESSMENT CRITERIA FOR VCE VISUAL COMMUNICATION AND DESIGN 2012, THEY ALSO DEMONSTRATE A CONSISTENT LEVEL OF EXCELLENCE TO INSPIRE STUDENTS OF THE CURRENT STUDY. KEY KNOWLEDGE AND SKILLS OF THE CURRENT STUDY ARE ADDRESSED IN THE 2012 EXHIBITION FOLIOS, THROUGH A BROAD RANGE OF APPROACHES, INNOVATIVE APPLICATIONS OF DESIGN ELEMENTS AND PRINCIPLES, AND THE SELECTION OF METHODS, MEDIA AND MATERIALS ALL RELEVANT TO VCE VISUAL COMMUNICATION DESIGN 2013. THE FOLIOS THEREFORE OFFER CURRENT AND FUTURE VCE STUDENTS A GREAT SOURCE OF INSPIRATION AND IDEAS.

CENTRIFUGAL JUICER CONCEPT FOR TANGELO AND PROMOTIONAL MATERIAL

VANGUARD INDUSTRIES HOME TOOL STORAGE UNIT inkjet print

inkjet print Communication need: To design a concept product and accompanying promotional material. This juicer was designed for Tangelo, a company whose appliances feature a stylish twist on traditional kitchen electronics. Reference photos of designer appliances, along with observational drawings of my own home appliances, were used to develop a design that combined both practicality and style. With metallic colours, I reflected the juicer’s futuristic appeal.

VISUAL COMMUNICATION DESIGN

ROXANNE BURCHELL

The concept behind the home tool storage unit was to create an easily accessible, yet aesthetically pleasing, unit that would cater for a wide range of customers, from large families to small, single-person households. It had to be high quality and have a range of features that differentiated it from other such kits on the market.

THE LODGE

AUSTRALIAN PAVILION, VENICE BIENNALE, THE GIARDINI – VENICE

balsa wood, balsa cement, Perspex, cardboard, inkjet print Communication need: To design a portable temporary shelter for homeless people, with logo and advertisement. The Lodge was designed to temporarily accom modate many people of a hugely varying demographic while emitting a welcoming and homely environment. The design was influenced by contemporary architecture, but was also compact and simplified, remaining neutral and inoffensive in a metropolitan setting. The final design has a multi-dimensional aesthetic, represented in a balsa-wood model.

PRUE EDMUNDS

Communication need: To redesign the Australian Pavilion at the Venice Biennale. The Australian Pavilion, Venice Biennale provided an exceptional architectural brief that required understanding of exhibition spaces and architectural typologies. I was challenged to find a narrative for the design and borrowed from the metaphor of Uluru as the centre of Australia. I researched the site and other architectural designs submitted for Di Stasio’s earlier competition.

Communication need: To design an outdoor footbridge that can be adapted to fit domestic ponds and garden beds of regular and irregular shapes. The Secret Garden footbridge was designed to blend into its garden environment and also offer a 360-degree experience. Rippled glass has been used in two shades of green to mimic the illusion of water, while its natural transparency creates different tones and textures when layered with the other discs.

Communication need: furniture design.

VISUAL COMMUNICATION DESIGN

REBEKKA LORD-JOHNSON

Re-creating the client identity of the Two Halves Café required an innovative design solution that focused on the application of the logo onto a number of different surfaces. This led to an exploration of materials, methods and media that ranged from screen printing, carpentry, pyrography, stickers and blackboard paint to textiles. The Two Halves stool was primarily inspired by Eames.

SOOKUN ARCHITECTS HEAD OFFICE

BOTTLE OPENER

Communication need: Exterior design for Sookun Architects’ new head office in Melbourne.

Communication need: To create a bottle-cap opener for individuals with limited strength, possibly due to age, medical condition or disability.

Sookun Architects’ new head office aims to appeal to those with an interest in design, while reflecting the modern style sensibilities of the surrounding Docklands area. Glass was used as a dominant material throughout the building to create an open feel and allow the beauty of the sea view to be seen.

This bottle-cap opener, for use by people with limited strength, had to be both easy to use and convenient to carry around. I researched many currently available bottle openers for a design solution. Ultimately I was inspired by the ergonomic form of an umbrella handle.

Presentation 1: Window display Perspex, wood, lino

Presentation 1: Campaign rollout inkjet print

Presentation 2: Promotional material inkjet print

Presentation 2: Paper promotion inkjet print

The focus of Arnica & Husk on ‘natural’ and ‘organic’ produce heavily influenced the design of both the window display and promotional material. Bright colours and a combination of geometric and organic shapes were used to create a dynamic modern space and visual brand identity, in turn increasing public awareness of the store.

SAGA requested a possible campaign and paper promotion for their newly established plans to renew Melbourne’s forgotten history. My designs were mainly inspired by the ever changing perceptions of history, and the difficulty in re-telling past stories. I used mainly digital media during the design process but found it hard to decide on the finals.

Presentation 2: Flora and Fauna Parks Reserve promotional poster inkjet print The Peninsula Link freeway required an installation piece of design, along with a promotional poster for the new adjoining walking trails. The designs were to convey to drivers the journey from an urban setting into the green landscapes of the Peninsula. I achieved this via the manipulation of rigid geometric shapes into fluid forms.

Presentation 2: Scaled feature wall for Dr Hermit’s espresso tapas bar acrylic spray paint Through my interest in the environment I tried to create a space within Dr Hermit’s that provided a sense of refuge from the hustle of city life. In an effort to create this sense of peace within Dr Hermit’s and its promotional material, I sought inspiration from the landscapes of the Australian Alpine Ranges and vintage imagery.

FIRS has kindly given permission for its logo to be used on this presentation board.

Presentation 2: Design proposal for Glenferrie Square inkjet print Glenferrie Square converts a carpark into a civic space linking residential, com mercial and leisure precincts. The brand evolved through an exploration of the shape of the site and the mood and colours of the surrounding neighbourhood. The scale of the project was a major challenge, so I researched significant work by Martha Schwartz and sought guidance from architects.

Presentation 2: October Horrorfest Popcorn Container and Beverage Cup inkjet print October Horrorfest required a promotional poster, popcorn container and beverage cup design for its annual horror film festival held in late October at Federation Square. Inspiration was taken from classic horror movies, which resulted in the predominant use of silhouettes and the exploration of methods such as lino printing and photography.

Presentation 1: T-Shirt design inkjet print and screen print

Presentation 2: Bookmarks inkjet print, aged paper

Presentation 2: Lookbook inkjet print

The illustrations in my designs reflected the imagery in T S Eliot’s poem ‘The Portrait of J Alfred Prufrock’ and aimed to engage the audience with the annual focus of the poetry festival. The poem itself was the main influence; imagery and existing designs were also researched. Printing, collaging, painting and digital drawing were explored.

A signature line of shirts was created for Horizons, a clothing label based in Torquay, Victoria. The new designs hoped to expand Horizons’ audience to a much broader and larger group. The design of the shirts, and accompanying lookbook, had to be dynamic and original while keeping within the brand identity.

Presentation 2: Promotional material for the Metamorphosis Series laser print Objective is an innovative design company that required a clock series called Metamorphosis. It is based on three main aspects: the measurement of time, depiction of passing time, and the way that time can be experienced. The distinctive form of each clock inspired the custom typography and illustrations used in all of the promotional material.

Presentation 2: Beware ar skateboarding promotional poster inkjet print

The express courier company Prompt required new promotional posters and business cards to emphasise their devotion to personal and speedy delivery. The business card called for an interactive component that required audience involvement. Through inspiration in various forms of origami, a solution was reached allowing a three-dimensional form to be constructed from the card.

Resurrection is a contemporary skateboarding company that has requested two skateboard designs that incorporate Catholic animal symbolism and use a variety of media such as ink and linoleum. Ultimately these designs evoked a natural, tribal feeling. Resurrection also requested a promotional poster for a skateboard event, which used photography and computer methods to achieve a vibrant retro look.

Presentation 2: Longboard and package prototype inkjet print

Black Goanna is seeking to design a new video game and associated packaging. As a whole I tried to create fun, imaginative designs to appeal to a younger audience. I attempted to incorporate steampunk styles, combined with a futuristic flare. I also used natural aspects to portray the game fully.

Lagoon Longboards is a new Melbourne-based longboard company. It required the design of a new corporate logo, longboard graphic and innovative package for longboard wheels. The logo and graphic designs reflect the styles and nature of longboarding, inspired by artist Andreas Preis. The graphic design successfully advertises the brand through its strong use of colour.
