Intelligent, irreverent and witty, Australian graphic design is out there making its mark globally. For this major exhibition of contemporary Australian graphic design, sixteen unique case studies unravel the creative process as they are juxtaposed against works from the Powerhouse Museum’s 20th century Australian graphic design archive. Featuring alternative and mainstream design for new media, motion graphic, animation, music-video and web design, as well as large-scale super graphic and billboard design, comic, poster, book, magazine and character toy design, and even tattoo art, the exhibition is a sweeping look at graphic design in action. Designers in the spotlight are Fabio Ongarato Design, Vince Frost of Frost Design, Steve Scott, Soap Creative, Josh Roelink of Tatudharma, Chris O’Doherty (aka Reg Mombassa), Carby Tuckwell, Voice, 3 Deep Design, Nathan Jurevicius, Boccalatte, Deuce Design, Qube Konstrukt, Crumpler, kwp!
