This year the Visual Communication Design discipline had the

opportunity to work with a range of non-for-profit organizations where students were required to create and resolve complex visual communication design strategies. The results are proudly exhibited in the Phoenix Gallery (17 – 28 October, 2012) and are a credit to everyone who participated in the project. Great thanks must be extended to Deakin Jobshop who helped to initiate the project and the organizations that gave of their time. In particular, thank you to the client contacts from C8 Journey, Melbourne Youth Initiative, Youth Mentoring Assisted Pathway, Kew Community Festival, Brotherhood of St Laurence, RSPCA, Yooralla, Kidsafe, Interchange Outer East and Rotary Club of Glen Waverley. Congratulations to the students who worked very hard on their excellent creative outputs and to the group of students who created this program along with the overall design strategy for D Festival.

The Kew Community Festival has been arranged annually since 1974 and is a celebration of their local community. The festival has a wide range of community activities including art exhibitions, a family fun day, fireworks and a street parade. It draws about 12000 visitors in a 10 day festival. The ultimate goal of the festival is for all in the Kew area to look forward to participating in the entire festival.

We are re-branding the overall look for The Rotary Club of Glen Waverley. To create a stronger connection to women and younger people. Their website is to be updated with more modern and fresh design which appeals more to their target group. We are also designing different elements to promote RYLA (Rotary Youth Leadership Award) and Harmony Day.

Yooralla Owen Carlson, Endre Karlsen, Kine Halland, Trond Grindvold. Our brief is to create a marketing campaign for the Family Options Program, a department at Yooralla, is a charity that works with helping and caring for disabled children. The aim of the campaign is to recruit more volunteer carers. The campaign will be executed via print media (posters etc) as well as social media.

Shaelah Gringhuis, Kaiwen Lei, Simen Strøm Braaten, Andrea Nicolaysen. ‘C8 Journey’ is a non-profit organization dedicated to provide change-makers with a platform for social advancement through inner growth. In order to help C8 Journey reach out to their target audience in a better way, we created a web campaign to clearly demonstrate what they do as an organization.

Interchange Outer East is a organization based in Ferntree Gully, focusing on the inclusion of disabled people in the community. They are in need of a campaign to recruit more volunteers aged between 12-25 to participate in outdoor camps. Using the theme ‘Simply fun’ we are aiming to create a campaign to recruit high school children to volunteer on Using owls and their environment these camps with the idea that as an analogy, we’ve emphasized they will gain new friends and C8’s fundamental principles. The have fun, as they volunteer. nest for example symbolizing the caring and nurturing surroundings where projects can grow.

Concept and mockups for National Kidsafe Day. Working from the concept of having the National Kidsafe Day become a “check list” day to have parents and others check their home and other areas for hazards and problems that could result in preventable injuries. We are making posters, smartphone application, infographics amongst other elements.

Our client was the Brotherhood of St. Laurence. They wished to devise a campaign aimed at the older generation to get new and committed volunteers for their retail stores and to also attract them to buying high quality second hand goods. With this target audience, we wanted our design to be clear and simple, have strong typography and photography, include the Brotherhood’s colours of orange, grey and black, as well as provide a happy and positive mood.

Melbourne Youth Initiative

Desiree Bjordal Haukenes, Jordan Harrick, Cathrine Ezgi Tanyeri, Jordan Lee, Bakke Bolstad, Dorian Karianne Eeg Pedersen. Vary, Ruben Morales Funez. We have the pleasure of helping RSPCA in our Collaborative Project. RSPCA is an organisation that fights against animal cruelty and for animal rights. Our pets are a part of our family and should be treated like family. Still, RSPCA find 138000 animals every year that needs help. With the rebranding of their donation and guardian programs, we have the opportunity to express how much happiness and love the animals give back in their new homes.


“We aim to support and affirm the value of people” MY Initiative have recently created the Training Sponsorship Proposal to inform potential sponsors about their organisation and how they can get involved in sponsoring one of their specified training programs. There are 4 main training sponsorship programs that MY Initiative have developed. These include; Family/Public Access Training Sponsorship, School Based Training Program Sponsorship, Workplace Based Training Sponsorship and Miscellaneous Training Sponsorship.

Jan Thorjornsen, Maria Morren, Cheung Lynn, Kate Goodwins. We are designing a new look for Youth Mentoring program `YMAP´. We aim to help get attention for YMAP in order to increase awareness and popularity.



Final year Drama students work in small teams, each creating their own short performance. The group works as a small company, chooses their own theme and develops a way of working together to create the work. They collaborate as improvisers, writers, actors, directors, dramaturgs, designers, publicists and project managers. The range and diversity of work they have produced this year has been staggering, as has the diversity of processes they have chosen to work with. Along the way, they develop the necessary skills for creative collaboration – building a process, reflecting on and critiquing their own work and that of others, letting their imaginations fly, letting go of old ideas, listening to others, weaving multiple ideas together and all the other large and small tasks that go to create an original work of performance. I would particularly like to thank Tom Salisbury for his sustained and wise support of the students and their projects, and Tricia Simmons for her wonderful combination of creative and organisational skills.

‘Maither’ is the performance that takes you on a quick trip through the pivotal points in a mother’s journey and the continuing cycle that lingers well after they thought it was over. From the pain of child labour to the pain in the butt of menopause, this lighthearted performance piece from 8 talented Drama majors is sure to entertain and engage mothers and teenagers from all different backgrounds.

In a world full of boundaries, controlled my masculine opinion and oppressed by He that Hath Huge Hands, one woman is destined to bring change. With the instincts to survive and driven to escape, can she regain her freedom? Or will she succumb to her new surroundings? All is not what it seems. Friendships are made, alliances are broken and sexuality is questioned. In order to survive she must remember one thing… … Wait, what were we talking about?

The story of a forbidden and secretive relationship between two cowboys and their lives over the years. A teenage hustler and a young man obsessed with alien abductions cross paths, together discovering a horrible, liberating truth. A naive teenager is sent to rehab camp when her straitlaced parents and friends suspect her of being a lesbian. Engendered is an exploration of the personal links of gender and sexuality.

Our performance piece will be a scaffold of short scenes that focus’ on the appeal of profanity. The piece is made up of quick scenes and even faster transitions of both time, place and setting and the piece is linked together through common theme and words. The performance runs between 10 and 12 minutes and is a great example of actor versatility.

Animation and emanation. What is the difference?

To the hard working student artist animators whose work you will have the privilege of seeing, there isn’t much between making things appear out of nothing except the imagination and animating these emanations. Well that’s not completely true. Thousands of hours have been lost in the design, construction and manipulation of all the elements that will appear on the screen and surround you into these new worlds of wonder. The Deakin animators are a wild and wacky bunch. Playing hard and fast with the unlimited possibilities of entertainment and even challenging the established conventions of cinema. So sit back, relax, watch and hopefully enjoy their moving images. Adrian Bruch

The dance students in this unit have utilized the choreographic skills they have practiced and developed over their 3 years at Deakin. Each group has worked intensively and collaboratively to define the approach, process and content for their piece, and to create and rehearse their material. They have shared the choreographic and dancing tasks democratically and have spent many hours talking, moving, thinking, assessing, worrying and ultimately finalizing. The choreographic questions they have been grappling with, and the aesthetic choices they have made, vary considerably. But they all relate strongly to the heritage of contemporary dance with its insistence on prodding the status quo to see what else emerges, and in not privileging the spectacular in movement. Instead the student artists have attempted to respond to the particular demands of their situations - their questions, their beliefs, their values - to mold performances that give some definition to what they see as important right now.

This year the Visual Arts and Photography students have devised installation and performative presentations to display their major projects, working with their colleagues from drama and dance to enrich the collaborations. The types of projects that have developed utilize their specialist skills and apply them to collaborative installation and public art settings. At Burwood, the themes and approaches range from investigation of suburbanism, the power of dreams, the treatment and portrayal of asylum seekers, a gothic take on university experience, a large scale exploration of portraiture and a 3D and performative investigation of our interior life in relation to our public face. At the waterfront the works explore the artist process and the take on the notion of regionalism in a global art market. These major collaborative projects highlight the breadth and depth of the program at Deakin and celebrate the importance of creativity in cultural production. Jondi Keane

The Tides that Bind Ann Abrahamson, Rachel Hanlon, Maria Richardson, Aaron Baltetsch, Jo Humphreys, Karol Robertson, Tracey Coutts, Robyn Lowe, Christopher Scott, Renee Dolley, Lis McDonald, Dij Vriens, Meg Griffiths. The Artist Presents is a part exhibition showcasing finished works by third year Visual Art students of the Deakin Waterfront studio. The diverse and eclectic nature of ideas and issues are brought together through the collaboration. From figuration addressing emotional relationships, to the plastic, geometric exploration of the spaces we inhabit. The works are conceptually and stylistically different yet unified in their search for what art is... reflected through the embodiment of diverse modes of mediums and ideologies. The Artist Process is a further part exhibition by the Waterfront Visual Art third years, that

reveals developmental ideas behind finished works, from the dissecting and unraveling of catalogued self-expression, to the raw, gouging of anarchy unreservedly questioning political ideals. Presented in one venue, this two part exhibition brings to the fore individual art practices and processes in a manner that will highlight the diversity and cross-currents of ideas within this united studio group.

Heads Up

‘Suburbs’ is an installation that depicts a bizarre and unsettling insight into the existence of a nuclear families’ mundane home. In a capitalist society we thrive for: money, land ownership and material possessions, however in seeking these advancements in this society, family members are put under great stress and pressure, therefore often suffering from raw emotions such as fear, anger and misery. There is more to the average suburban household than meets the eye...

Abigail Thompson, Eloise Burfurd, Ross Widdows. Heads Up is a large scale art installation/sculpture which explores the universal concept of the life cycle. Created from approximately 600 balloons, associated with the celebration of ageing, the sculpture forms a pixelated portrait. The face of the sculpture is of the famous ‘Afghan Girl’ from the National Geographic, who also embodies our concept of ageing. The sculpture is attached to an air compressor which allows the balloon face to “breath” in and out. The installation will be presented outside building ‘P’ to coincide with our goal of art for everyone - so HEADS UP!

The Midnight Manifestations. Once the sun leaves the campus something slightly sinister wakes suddenly from its slumber. Terrifying troubles of university students arise! Manifested from their woes in a terrifically twisted array of forms, we, the Sisters Grimm formally invite you on a quest to discover each eerie entity hidden in the most unexpected of places.

Enter our small world, where the uncanny awaits. This Enchantment Installation combines elements of photography, performance, projection and mono printing. Somnia explores the unconscious and the subconscious mind, through the use of layered images, word play, manipulated sounds, and live art. This installation encourages the audience to question their perception of reality.

We hope to explore a dialog between the inner and outer selves. The fragile venerable self and our external layered or shielded selves. Central to these ideas and the overall performance is the dancers role within this performance to move within these concepts as they shift between these Altered States. Moving between these states of consciousness the dancers hover between the inner and outer self, the form and the formless worlds of known realities, the conscious and the sub-conscious experience.

“If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense, nothing would be what it is because everything would be what it isn’t.” - Alice We’re All Mad Here is a photographic exploration into the cross over between the physical world and the fantasy world aiming to explore the juxtaposition between these two worlds as an interactive installation. Influenced by Lewis Carroll’s Alice In Wonderland the installation will look at different aspects of fantasy worlds used to escape the monotony of reality.



The film production area of ACC316 maintains strong connections with the

professional film industry. The scripts were written in Trimester 1 in ACC307 Developing a Project: Ideas to Scripts and eleven were selected by an industry panel that included Producers, Directors and Writers. The unit has a strong emphasis on process and students form production teams in the first week of Trimester, when they nominate which production role they wish to fill. A number of film industry professionals give guest lectures about their own particular role, so that students can gain an insight into each major discipline. Each film also has its own dedicated composer from the Box Hill School of Music and the films are shot on professional cinema quality Red Epic cameras, the only undergraduate course in the world that has this facility. The films will be graded and finished at Complete Post, one of Melbourne’s most respected post-production facilities. The eleven completed films will be screened at the Astor theatre in St. Kilda on Sunday November 11th, 2012.

ENERGY Energy is for the feel of the entire festival. Energy is also for the personalities that D festival contains. There are so many different people, with many different projects, but the main drive is their creative energy and their passion for arts.



Experience is something we all seek, and by coming to D festival, it’s what you get. We chose experience as a value because we feel that the productions displayed and showcased at Deakin during D festival is not only an experience to the audience, but also for the artists.

Experimental is for the innovative and curious side of the students groups participating in “D festival”. It’s one of the key elements of a creative being, and every discipline is making their production by experimenting.

Fredrik Larsen, Kine Marie Kapaasen Madsen, Linn Alnes Djuvsland, Michael Brown. In the making of the concept, we wanted a strong profile to tie it all together. After choosing our three value words we chose a triangle and made it asymmetrical to give it a bit more personality. With using that simple shape as our main element we got more freedom to experiment with the artworks Our triangle displays Experimental by changing colours, and being asymmetrical. It has energy by being a strong shape and pointing towards the information to come. Experience is implemented by having the triangle looking similar to a play button. It’s a symbol for a start on something that going to happen, an experience. Last but not least, the triangle can portrait a D for “D festival”.

The way we chose to portrait the experimental collaboration showed in D festival is to make two posters each, totally independent on each other. This way we got to test the strength of our concept with the triangles being the only consistent. At the same time we got to showcase our own design style in a way that represents the diversity in D festival. The logo is a clean typography with the typefaces we chose to use through the entire profile. It’s usually in the triangle to the top left, but also used by it self. It states the name of the festival, with the D for Deakin. It also has our sub heading that reads “Celebrate Deakin’s emerging creative’s”

The celebration for us is: Firstly the celebration of the artworks and productions showcased at D festival. It’s also a celebration of our years as learning creatives who’s now at the start of our emerging careers. The play button in our triangle and the experience as a value word symbolizes that everything has a start, but also an end. The end doesn’t have to be a sad part, it’s just meaning the end of an era, and the start of a new one. So a celebration of Deakin’s newly (almost) graduated creatives who’s about to emerge in to another creative way of living.
