About Us

Disruption 2020 features graduates across the majors of Animation & Game Design, Creative Advertising & Graphic Design, Digital Design, and Illustration. Our time at Curtin University has not been without disruption, having spent the bulk of first semester fully online during the pandemic lockdown. The return to campus was a momentous occasion for us final year students. It only served to shift our beautifully warped minds into even more creative territory. Friendships were formed, nicknames were earned, and skills were refined.

None of these achievements would have been possible without the support of the Graduates Staff Committee, Curtin University, our families, friends, pets, and baristas. It is with unreserved joy and satisfaction that we present our portfolios to industry.

Our Values

Community

Create a graduating cohort that is comfortable and confident working with each other on industry projects beyond graduation.

Enthusiasm

Be passionate about user experience, and express a genuine commitment to the various design disciplines.

Honesty

Be honest about capabilities, intentions, and sudden realisations; allowing others ample time to accept and adjust to hiccups without stress.

Inclusion

Proactively seek opportunities for both confident and introverted members to contribute, practicing patience to ensure that no member is isolated within their role.
