We are excited to introduce this year’s School of Design graduate exhibition – GradX 2020 | 1.5 Degrees. The festival will run for two weeks, from 23rd November to 4th of December 2020, and will be hosted entirely online. You will have a chance to explore our amazing students’ work in virtual spaces across Swinburne’s School of Design.

CREATING THE CONDITIONS FOR INNOVATION

The business and R&D landscape of Australia is rapidly changing and we believe that the only way to stay ahead of the curve is to use design thinking and co-creation methods to discover new offerings.

Our interdisciplinary teams work together on real world projects, with local and global partners, using human centered design methods to co-create extraordinary insights and outcomes. This diversity of minds, skills, and experience drives R&D capability and impact.
