Billy Blue College of Design students showcase projects
Nov '13
Billy Blue College of Design’s 2013 graduating class publicly showcased their graduate projects at the Biannual Exhibition on the Village Greens at Darling Quarter.

Friday night marked Sydney’s introduction to some of Australia’s most promising, young, emerging designers. 150 students across five creative disciplines unveiled their industry-grade works at Billy Blue College of Design’s Biannual Exhibition.

Thousands of people over the weekend treated themselves to a sneak peek at the future of design and the redefined role of the modern designer – being multi-faceted and multi-dimensional.

The exhibition, held in Darling Quarter, lit up the Village Greens with the colourful neon, stringed ‘Fuze’ sculpture fittingly representing the mergence between social networking and the meeting points of Sydney.

This year’s theme of the subconscious ‘Shift’ saw the works focus on the changing nature of the urban environment. It incorporated a diverse range of innovative projects from the college’s Communication Design, Digital Media Design, Branded Fashion, Residential/Commercial Interiors and Branded Environment design streams.

From miniature cityscapes in recycled paper coffee cups and fresh fashions, to indoor gardens in the form of an Urbarrium, the projects proved to be nothing short of outstanding. Guests dressed their necks in brightly coloured pieces in support of the Fuze sculpture, which was decadently created using the College’s new addition 3D printers, while screens displayed new 3D graphics and technology from the Digital Media students. Later in the evening, audiences flocked to the live screen-printing station to get their hands on one of four specially designed prints, giving them something a little more permanent to take home.

The 360 degree spin technology was on full display from the Branded Fashion course, thanks to Lizard Management and Hula Hoop Studios, taking the graduates final project garments to a whole new level.

Sight remained a well-satisfied sense with taste not far behind. One of the student projects ‘Savasana’, offered self-brewed organic beer and cider. This was mixed with the artistic displays and the old school wooden Milagro Tequila cart serving pineapple and coconut tequila delights – it was smiles and good times all round.

The Billy Blue College of Design Biannual Exhibition marked the students’ entry into the working world, placing them among design industry professionals and some of Sydney’s most creative brains. Being able to share the exhibition with friends, family and the supportive Sydney public, ‘Shift” was able to generate a celebratory atmosphere, electric enough to keep the Village Greens buzzing all weekend long.
