Design creates culture. Culture shapes values. Values determine the future.
Robert L. Peters

“As designers, we have a responsibility to do good, in whatever way that means to us, and so, for three years, we have honed our creative skills across all fields of Visual Communication and Design, learning how to meet our professional responsibility. Guided through by industry veterans that have become both mentors and friends; we are now at the final stop on our journey, ready to introduce ourselves to our new professional community.

The 2017 graduates of Visual Communication Design present The Museum of Us - a collection of work that doesn’t just represent the individual, but us as a collective”.

Supported by the School of Creative Industries, the exhibition showcases the diverse talents and design work of final year students from the 2017 Bachelor of Visual Communication Design at the University of Newcastle.
