Student Digital Presentation

Best Digital Presentation by a Student

This category was judged on the standard of the graphic presentation and the quality and range of digital techniques included. Overall the standard of the entries was extremely high, with some matching the highest professional standards seen in the design and graphics industries.

Winner – Zhi Zheng
This submission – branded the ‘fun zone’ – clearly demonstrates the entrant’s thought process from conception to finished product, and more. The use of preliminary hand-sketch ideas that grew and developed into the basis of the building solution were particularly noted. The four steps labeled ‘concept’, ‘environment’, ‘function’ and ‘solution’ depict the movement of the idea through the design stages. The introduction of colour only on the completed product highlights the finished response. The background ‘wave’ effectively visually links the drawings through the process. This same wave was also utilised in the front cover page of the written submission, adding to the brand and tying it to ‘fun zone’ name. The perspective section with the finished building raised up to reveal the 3D model of the internals allows all people to understand and easily relate to the building flows.

Second Place – Daniel Maloney

Daniel has given considerable thought to his submission, ‘Younghearts Childcare’. The background of the submission allows you to see snippets of the hand sketches and ideas explored in the process to achieve the final solution. The background colours used are also base greys; they indicate but do not highlight these elements. The finished site plan and elevations therefore clearly stand out. The coloured zones on the floor plan not only label these areas, but visually clarify the links between the different areas. The detail in the 2D elevations and the 3D perspective views were of the highest detail in finished materials and quality. The use of shading and sunlight in the 3D shows how it affects the building during the day.
