Lea Hicks from OZWAC (Australian Women and Children’s Research Foundation) came to speak to our Graphic Design Advanced Diploma students at the start of the year to brief them on promotional material required for the up and coming OZWAC Ball. The ball is an major annual event for OZWAC that raises much needed funds for further research and support for the organisation.
Our students took on the brief to design the e-flyer, flyer, newspaper ads, posters, banners, invitations, programs as well as video and website designs. The design process, client communication, and final designs for all of the elements were embedded into the assessments for the units within the Graphic Design Advanced Diploma.
It was a great opportunity for the students to gain actual first-hand experience of working with a real client with client needs and deadlines. Two teachers where involved in the process, Sandi Lucock and Craig Daalmeijer-Power with Craig taking on the majority of the project management with the students. The whole experience was a great learning opportunity for the students and offered a good insight into the industry.
