Industrial Design students shine at exhibition

Final-year Product and Industrial Design talent was recently showcased at the Annual Graduate Exhibition in Woodstock.

According to Lezandi Fourie, a third year exhibitor and prize winner, the aim of this year’s Graduate Exhibition was “to showcase our design talent”. The exhibition, organised and designed by the students, also provided an opportunity to build the brand of the programme.

In a first for the programme, final-year students were awarded prizes with irreverent titles like, Mad Scientist, Blood, Sweat and Tears and Minion to Master. The programme lecturers came up with the names for the prizes and also selected the ultimate winners.

Items such as standing lamps, furniture, timber puzzles and product renderings made for a dazzling display. Third-year National Diploma students weren’t the only ones exhibiting either. Postgraduate (BTech) students’ designs were also on display to the audience, which included students, alumni and industry players. Products designed by the BTech students were also available for sale – from coffee pots to camera straps.

The Product Design and Industrial Design Postgraduate courses are for anyone interested in designing in three dimensions – from physical objects found in daily life, to innovative systems and product concepts. The job opportunities available to graduates of this course include lighting design, set-building and furniture design and manufacturing.

The exhibition served as valuable experience for the student organisers in promoting and marketing their designs, a skill they will need to have when they enter the working world.

More pictures of the exhibition are available on our Facebook page.
