The end of 2006 saw the usual slew of exhibitions of design graduates work. Locally we had the University of SA Visual Communication Honours students show titled ‘Pencils Down’ featuring the culmination of 15 design students work. There’s some nice stuff on display, obviously benefiting from the extra year that the Honours students do on their degree. If there’s any weaknesses in the work, it come from the repetition inherent in 15 individuals all doing their takes on the same set projects, and some boring use of typography. You can see their ‘wares’ on display here. Most of them have each set up their own websites as well if you’re so inclined to check out some more.
