Crafted people-generated design. A deep understanding and commitment to our client’s strategic vision.

Deakin’s digital future is celebrated in the design of new entrance cubes that have been implemented on the Melbourne Burwood, Geelong Waterfront, and Geelong Waurn Ponds campuses.

The design was conceived in collaboration with the university community, with the users contributing to the texture of the cube.

The cubes are culturally engaging. They create distinctive waiting and meeting points, and places where digital information can be shared.

The cubes challenge the notion of conventional signage. They create twenty-first century places that have fully engaged with the university community.

They enable audio and visual sharing of stories and serve as communication devices, promoting the wider aspirations of the university on a daily basis.
