Designers in spotlight

FLEDGLING graphic designers kicked off their careers in Kingscliff last night with an exhibition of their work.

The Toy Pixel exhibition featured work from North Coast Institute TAFE students.

Creative industries head teacher Craig Elliott said Toy Pixels showcased the work produced by the 2011 Diploma of Graphic Design graduates.

"The exhibition features a dynamic and engaging selection of work across the spectrum of graphic design media such as publishing, illustration, visual identity, photographic, screen and web design," Mr Elliott said.

Design student Natalie Kiryk of Byron Bay, who hopes to work as a freelance graphic designer, said she enjoyed the process of creating the work.

"We were all given a tarot card and I was given the world," Ms Kiryk said.

"I made the Barcelona collage and I made it into a diorama.

"The costume, which was also on the world, had postage stamps and it's a postcard dress with various postcards from all my overseas travels which I already had at home."
