No ‘trucking around’ for Comm Design students.
When it comes to road safety, third-year Swinburne Communication Design (Honours) students Grace Kirby, Charlotte Hicks and Caitlin Preyser are driving positive change.
The trio’s clever campaign for encouraging the safe interaction of younger road users with trucks scored them the top prize of $6,000 in the Re:act competition. Now they’re taking it even further.
