Mura reported that the exhibition included works of students printed in various formats and materials, which are also screen-based. “We had been involved in many activities since the spring semester of 2018 academic year in order to introduce the Department of Visual Communication Design to new generations and to the people of Izmir. This summer there is going to be open house for prospective students where they will be choosing the right universities and programs that will shape their future lives, careers. Therefore, we decided to use a catchy slogan that appeals to them and invites them to our department. We do not only exhibit print and screen-based works of students but information panels about what Visual Communication Design is and what the professionals of this field do,” said Mura. The most important fact about the exhibition, said Mura was that it was set up at the inner courtyard of the shopping mall where all guests visiting the center would be able to see the 50-meter square slogan from all floors.
