Having your artwork featured at the ACMI store is one way to spruce up your CV.
RMIT’s textile design students have been given the chance to design a range of merchandise, which will be sold exclusively at the Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI) store.
The news comes after a recent collaboration between the university and the Centre, which saw the Bachelor of Arts (Textile Design) students partner with ACMI for a merchandising project.
Students Jane Merrylees, Jarnah Montersino, Aliya Murray and Bridget O’Rourke will have their locally-designed and produced merch on offer in the ACMI store. The titles of their respective collections are: Kool Kinesics, Play Pause, Electrical Current and Nuance.
Items such as tote bags, purses, stationery and homewares will be available to purchase, marking the Centre’s first-ever line of ACMI-branded merchandise sold at the shop.
“A lot of hard work goes into university assignments, so it’s really satisfying to see my products go into production for a wider audience,” says RMIT student, Jane Merrylees.
“Projects like this provide a solid platform upon which students can start to formulate an understanding of the industry that we may one day be a part of.”
All four students will receive an ACMI membership and a license fee for their designs, with the prospect of more collaborations in the future.
The range is exclusively available in-store and online.
