The Annual Show That Has Everyone Talking

Students undergoing the Bachelor of Design Computing and Master of Interaction Design and Electronic Arts represent the intersection of two worlds; design and technology.

These degrees encompass the approach necessary to invent elegant, commercially viable products and services. The 2017 exhibition brings together projects from both courses; individual or collective, they are realised by the students who have proposed new solutions and designs to a world filled with pain points.

Their projects showcase ground-breaking new ideas in emerging digital technologies and creative thinking across robotics and drones, mobile apps, 3D modelling, interactive digital installations and wearable technology.

Not only an event of educational significance, the opening night is a joyful celebration of the unwavering dedication and enormous achievements of our students.

Show your support and join the celebration!

Meet Our Team

Designer? Voyager? Outlander? Nobody knows who he is but he is and he's part of the gradshow team, carefully crafting the tiniest details as the show's co-curator, making sure you'll find it rich and insightful, giving a glimpse on the future and of what it may hold. Personally? I love all the digital and hybrid, crossovering sciences, jumping around the world, drinking double pulp orange juice and proving that the impossible may actually be quite possible

Hi, I'm Tommy, one-third of the D17 exhibition curation team. With a lot of care and love, we have designed the exhibition to cater towards your enjoyment and wonder, while also taking in what it means to be a Design Computing student. Our peers have worked extremely hard for three years to be able to create their work, and it’s our job to make sure that we go above and beyond to bring these exceptional ideas to life. So treat your eyes to some beautiful scenery, grab a drink with friends, and if you see me around, hit me up!

Hi, I’m (also) Jess! Being a DesCom student over the past 3 years has helped me grow my capabilities as a designer and meet a bunch of new people so I’m really excited to be able to give back to the course this way. Design Computing is an awesome course that covers a wide variety of disciplines and our fellow students have been working hard to showcase the progress they’ve made over the years through their imagination and creativity! It’s an honour for me to be able to work on the catalogue alongside the rest of the awesome D17 team!
