Historical information

Limited edition (#104) promotional pack created by University of Ballarat, Bachelor of Visual Arts (Graphic Design / Multimedia) third year, graduating students, 2004.

"Products of Choice" is how the graduands "collectively believed represented who they are and what they are striving to be."

Each of the 24 graduating students designed and produced a suite of 10 badges (240 unique 35mm badges in total), hand assembled on the faculty badge making machine. One of each student's badges was then hand packed into a foam mount within a plastic case. Ie. All 24 students are represented in each limited edition case.

Their original corresponding order is outlined on the reverse of the pack. (Note, it is possible badges may have been reordered prior to entering the collection.)

Recipients were encouraged to choose and wear the badges.

Lecturing staff (third year): Helmut Stenzel, Leigh Whetter, Nic Wai.
