The prestigious Designers Institute Best Awards Ceremony is an annual event which recognises design excellence in Graphic, Interactive, Product and Spatial Design.
Three Whitecliffe BFA Graphic Design 2011 graduates have been selected as finalists in the Graphic Design section. Fraser Bingham, Grace Kim and Saba Aghahasan all entered the work they created as part of their Fourth Year Studio research projects.
Sonya Lacey, Graphic Design lecturer, commented that this is an amazing achievement as the Best Awards are the most prestigious design industry awards in New Zealand.. In 2011 Whitecliffe had four students involved for a single collaborative project, but to have three submissions make it through to the finals is a big honour.
Whiteclffe congratulates Fraser, Grace and Saba on this outstanding success and wishes them well for the final awards. Congratulations also to Caroline Powley (Graphic Design HOD) and the Department lecturers for their students’ success.
The Awards Ceremony is to be held at the Viaduct Events Centre on October 5.
