A GROUP of design students from Queensland College of Art, Griffith University have brought a splash of colour to Queensland’s largest business park.

They created an eyecatching mural as part of Griffith’s new partnership with Brisbane Technology Park at Eight Mile Plains.

The project involved graphic design students on placement at Liveworm, the Queensland College of Art’s unique in-house design studio.

Bachelor of Design student Jenny Fox, from Yeronga, created the design.

The graphic design major said it was her largest and most ambitious project to date.

“It’s definitely the biggest thing I’ve ever done and it was so much fun working on this scale,” she said.

The project was supervised by Liveworm Creative Director David Sargent and Fine Art lecturer Dr Simon Degroot, who managed the project from design through to installation.

Dr Degroot said the design students embraced the challenge of creating a largescale public artwork.

“The students come from a graphic design background, but they all embraced this project and rose to the challenge of working on a large-scale work with brushes and paint,” he said.

“This project allowed them to expand their knowledge and skills.

“It’s definitely the largest project they have been part of, and they all jumped on board and worked well as a team.”
