It’s that time of the year again where we celebrate the achievements of all the design students who have survived the demands of their degrees – the future of Queensland design!

We have put together the following list of graduate exhibitions spanning areas such as architecture, industrial design, fashion and graphic design for those interested in checking out what our emerging design community has achieved.
