Last month students from Year 2, 3 and 4 got together for a shared lunch to farewell Caroline Powley, head of department in graphic design, who is taking a year’s maternity leave. The students each made Caroline, a typography enthusiast, a card based around letters of the alphabet and numbers. Caroline completed her undergraduate studies at Unitec in Auckland and is working towards her Masters of Art and Design at AUT. Caroline’s design research focuses on typography, with particular interests in hand-generated signage and type design. She has worked for design studios and advertising agencies in London and Auckland.
