2015 Melbourne Design Awards
The Telstra Trading Room is a unique collaboration between Telstra and Deakin University and functions like an interbank FX trading floor. Deakin is proud to be one of only few Australian universities that offers trading curriculum in a high-tech teaching space to undergraduate and postgraduate students, as well as external companies interested in training their staff in a real-life environment.
Deakin Business School is elated to announce that today, the design, which was created by Melbourne-based agency Aer Design, won a gold medal in the 2015 Melbourne Design Awards under the category 'Graphic Design - Environmental'. The award celebrates creativity and innovation in the intersection of communication design and the built environment, and is concerned with the visual aspects of wayfinding, communication identity and brands, information design and shaping the idea of place. Consideration was given to clarity of communication and the matching of information style to audience.
