FOREWORD

TAFE DESIGN ALUMNI 2018

TO

FROM

SUBJECT

Hard Drive

Andrew Reid

Thank you

Hey Hard Drive, I know we’ve had a bit of

a rocky relationship (I will never forget you

letting me down at that critical time in final

year, nor myself for not backing you up) but

it feels like we’ve been on a real odyssey

together, and I just wanted to say thanks.

As you are aware, I spent YEARS working

so f’ing hard on design (after design, after

design, after design...) for my lecturers, for

the assessments, for internships, for AWARD

school - spending *hours* trawling the

internet, books, magazines and EVERYTHING

ELSE seeking inspiration and ideas to come

up with *N*E*W* concepts. Do you know how

hard that is in today’s world? When there is

an absolute deluge of great work out there

already? Trying to be original and to stand

out? Sheeeesh. I gave it my all, and I gave my

all to you until I forgot to. Thank you for being

there and holding that space for me.

When I lived through the tides of imposter

syndrome during TAFE (and beyond) swinging

like a pendulum from, ‘I can do this!’ to, ‘What

the hell am I doing?’, you were there. As you

know, you have mainly been party to those,

‘What the hell...’ days – and as always, with

hindsight, I know I could have done more to

help you to help me. But we battled through.

I realise that sometimes I was very hard

on myself, which might have made me say

cruel things to you, hard drive. I’m sorry. But

know it’s only because you were my closest

compadre during those tricky times. I am

working hard on being kinder to myself, and

giving myself a break – but, thanks for taking

the brunt of my emotions anyway. It really

meant a lot.

I’m afraid I can’t do that!

It’s strange to think how far we’ve come. Both

strange and exciting! We partnered up a bit

later than most human-hard drive duos (can you

believe I worked ten years as a diesel mechanic?

Ha!) and yes, now you live in a drawer (sorry but

I just couldn’t rely on you after that time you

skipped out on me) but you’re still so important

to me. You hold memories – even though I can’t

access them – I know they are there, and I just

can’t let you go.

Thinking back on the events of our journey,

it makes me realise how some happenings which

feel SO HUGE at the time, are not. They’re just

twists, bumps and turns in the crazy path of life,

and those challenges contribute to our creativity

and resilience. I sometimes wonder if you were

trying to teach me a lesson at the time? Hard to

see when you’re in the thick of it I guess. Having

swapped lecturers for creative directors, and

assignments for briefs - I take those lessons from

our past with me. I look back on our time with

such gratitude. Together we learnt so much and

laid such solid foundations for the career that I’m

forging now. I owe so much to your support.

PACKAGING, ALCOHOLIC, SWELL SEASON


Foregone conclusion?

I’m currently writing a foreword for the 2021

graduates at NM TAFE. Seeing the hard work

these creatives have put into their portfolios

and projects reminded me of our time together.

What they’ve managed to achieve over the last

couple of years is truly incredible.

As I’ve looked through this catalogue one

thing is clear: The future of design and creative

problem solving is in safe hands, plus it looks

like they’ve all backed up their work regularly.

I now live with multiple hard-drives and a backup-the-back-up

routine that is second to none.

And for that – I am forever grateful.

Thanks again for being there.

Your friend, Andrew

VOYAGE,

FULL OF

EVENTS


BOARDERLINE // NOVEMBER 2020

Coordinating the creative and organisational efforts of over forty

graphic design students to throw an art sale is tricky at the best of

times. But add a global pandemic to the mix, now that made things

interesting. Our first fundraiser as a group, Boarderline proved to be

hugely challenging, but even more rewarding. It forced us to step

outside our comfort zone, roll up our sleeves and work together

as a team. We cooperated as a cohort to produce and sell custom

skate decks, stickers, LP covers and more - earning a tidy sum for

our Advanced Diploma graduation exhibition.




GREAT FINDS // AUGUST 2021

After the success we enjoyed with the Boarderline art sale, we were

eager to outdo ourselves with another fundraiser. This time around,

the stakes were higher; we were raising funds for our final graduate

show and it had to be BIG. Fortunately, we had the skills needed

for the job as third-year Advanced Diploma students. Posters were

printed, invites were sent, and our excitement grew as we designed

unique, premium and eclectic artwork - Great Finds. A spectacular

turnout and plenty of sales made for an unforgettable evening,

allowing us to take our graduate show to the next level.



BRIGHT PRESS // AUGUST 2021

In August, the Graphic Design Department had the pleasure of

hosting Bright Press owner and old-school print expert Ann Ong

as our artist in residence. Her fascinating and beautifully crafted

poster series exhibition Common Phrases That Originated From

Printing, was more than enough to inspire our creativity and

spark an interest in the art of letterpress. So, we took a road

trip to Whiteman Park, home of Bright Press - Ann’s unique

and independent letterpress printing workshop. It was a truly

amazing experience to see vintage printing presses in operation

and to learn typesetting from a pro.


AGDA PORTFOLIO REVIEW // SEPTEMBER 2021

Once again AGDA graciously hosted this year's portfolio review

which was attended by several keen Advanced Diploma students.

It was an excellent opportunity to receive expert advice on our

design work from industry professionals belonging to Perth's

most renowned studios. It was really great to be able to connect

with professionals and get face - to-face feedback! The advice

we received and the connections we made will be an invaluable

asset as we continue our journey in graphic design.

Assessment scheme

The ISTD student assessment scheme,

started in 1975, is cited as a model of

academic thoroughness and professionalism.

Unlike many others, the scheme is

not a competition as it considers the holistic

achievement – not just the final outcome.

The overall design process of research,

reflection, strategy, design development,

technical and production specification is

assessed by teams of practicing designers

and educators. We demand this rigorous

approach to ensure standards are met and

that the award maintains its significance.

Students who are successful in the scheme

are offered membership of the Society.

Without doubt all students who undertake

and submit work for our assessments

learn an enormous amount. All students who

submit receive a personal report and even

those who are not successful often tell us

how much they feel they have benefited from

doing the project.

We review our methods and standards

annually. Incorporating reflection from

members, assessors, tutors and students

from around the world ensures best practice

is maintained and that each successful

student’s award reflects a considerable and

pertinent achievement.

The briefs

Our practice is based upon the printed word

but now embraces the gamut of media and

technologies that we use to communicate.

Accordingly, we have progressively written

our student project briefs for interpretation

through a range of media. How and where

we use the written word has brought new

challenges and more importantly new

opportunities.

By not defining specific media and

outcomes for our projects, we offer holistic

communication challenges – deliberately

breaking the perceived tradition of the typo/

graphic designer just providing essentially

visual skills. First and foremost we are

communicators using design skills to inform,

persuade and delight. This makes each

project a more demanding but stimulating

challenge that we can individually resolve.

With that in mind we point out what

should seem obvious – that ISTD is a society

addressing the typographic aspects of

graphic design. We mention this because

each year we receive submissions from

students who show well-developed general

graphic design skills, but have missed the

point that we are assessing each student’s

particular typographic skills. That is not to

suggest that typography is a discrete area

– but is fundamental in addressing visual

communication through the word. Put

bluntly, it is graphic design but it needs to

use typography as the essential vehicle

to communicate.

Assessment process

Assessments are held annually, and parity is

maintained across all areas through central

supervision and moderation, with the process

following the same procedure as that for the

main assessment. The number of assessors

involved in each area scheme is determined

by the number of projects submitted.

The main assessment requires around

forty members and tutors who spend two

intense days assessing several hundred

project submissions. Teams of two take on

average about half an hour on each project

including writing the personal report. These

teams are moderated by experienced

assessors who ensure parity of marking and

continuity of the levels of award. This latter

point is critical as our standards for award of

Pass, Merit or Commendation are not equivalent

to any national or institutional standards,

but are maintained through continuity within

the Society and its ongoing professional and

educational activities.

Our commitment to education through the

Assessment is further expressed by providing

opportunities for a number of tutors to be

mentored as assessors each year. A valuable

experience of the content and standards

required, that is often reflected in the quality

of the projects subsequently submitted by

their students. This is one of the several

benefits of Institutional Membership.

Silence is Golden

Within my publication project, I wanted to capture

the beauty of the silent film, allowing the reader to

experience the multiple influential regions of the

silent film world: Japan, Germany & Russia. Each zine

details one highlight film, one highlight director and

what made that region unique to the silent film world.

I have attempted to create three distinct typographical

publications that generate interest and excitement

surrounding the topic. In turn, celebrating one of the

most stunning lost art forms of our time.

ISTD ASSESSMENT SCHEME, INVISIBLE CITIES CONTENTS


Invisible Cities

Invisible Cities by Italo Calvino is a novel comprised of

fifty-five tales told by the Explorer Marco Polo to the

emperor Kublai Khan. Each tale explores a different

fantastical city that is self-contained and devoid of plot

or character development. Instead, the tales describe

the cities through the lens of different themes, thus

commenting on the human experience and psyche.

Don’t Get Caught Honeybun

Don’t Get Caught Honeybun takes place in Los Angeles,

infamously ‘the capital of crime’. The peak of crime activity

in LA was in the 1970s and ‘80s. Don’t Get Caught Honeybun

is reminiscent of the typographic style of those decades.

A how-to handbook, threaded with dark humour, introducing

a series of crimes and statistics, followed by tips, guides and

step by step on committing the perfect crime.

This ISTD publication explores the unique use of type in

elements, the format of the publication was developed for

maximum visual impact to represent this body of work.

German Expressionism

My ISTD project explores the German psyche after the events

of World War I, and how this collective melancholy is reflected

within German Expressionist silent films. Each individual

book within the set of three uses a film from this movement

as a case study, and explores how different themes and ideas

present within the stories were a reflection of the post-war

German reality of the 1920s.

The World Beneath Our Feet

The biophilia brief requests a typographic piece to celebrate

humans connection with nature. We are communal people that

crave connection and a sense of belonging. We enjoy nature

whether it be a beautiful garden on the commute to work or a

walk through the park surrounded by trees. Do we know that

beneath our feet trees and plants are communicating with each

other, albeit non-verbal? This publication aims to help people

feel grounded, giving knowledge about this highly intelligent

connection of plants and trees surrounding us.

Perception Creation

The world around you is rich with information.

As we navigate through what we call ‘reality’,

our brain’s perpetual task is the challenge of

putting all this information in order. To select

from, organise, interpret and act based on an

endless stream of sensory signals: the sights,

sounds, smells, tastes and physical sensations

of whichever environment we occupy at any

given time. Perception Creation is an immersive

and interactive print publication that explores the

human brain’s remarkable ability to make sense

of the physical world through perception. The

book comprises two parts, The Sensory World

and The Psychology of Perception, presenting a

fascinating account of current knowledge in the

field, alongside original illustrations and thoughtprovoking

anecdotes.

ISTD ASSESSMENT SCHEME, THE VOICES OF SILENCE INTRODUCTION

ISTD ASSESSMENT SCHEME, THE VOICES OF SILENCE COVER

The Voices of Silence

This project is a tribute to those who shaped the

Silent Film Era, and consequently, the growth of

the film industry as a whole. I decided to focus

on the three most influential names that shaped

silent cinema in three different aspects: the

invention of film, the actors and their characters,

and filmmakers. I chose these three aspects as

they are all intertwined with each other, which

helps create a harmonious story of development.

This publication is organised into three sections.

The sections are ordered in a way that captures

the evolution of cinema and silent film, starting

with the Lumière Brothers and the invention of

the cinématographe, followed by Charlie Chaplin

and his impact on and off the screen, and then

concluding with Thomas Ince, who is considered

the father of filmmaking.
