Graphic designers will display their work at a showcase scheduled to open today.

SJD World, a graphic design firm, and the Bermuda Society of Arts have teamed up to present the Graphic Design Showcase to Bermuda in City Hall.

The show will feature a range of submissions from students, freelance designers, local design studios and advertising agencies.

It is a unique opportunity for local graphic designers to network within their industry and to display their work for potential employers or clients in a gallery setting.

Stephan Johnstone, founder and creative director at SJD World, said visitors to the exhibition would experience “some of the best of what Bermuda has to offer”.

Mr Johnstone said that although the event was a “showcase of talent and not so much a competition”, outstanding work would be rewarded.

He explained that the awards support one of the showcase goals, which is to “inspire young creatives on the island”.

Awards up for grabs include a work shadow position, free website support and a professional portfolio review.

Exhibition categories included digital art, computer-generated illustration, digital photo collage and 3D, corporate design logos, advertisements, posters and flyers.

Other eligible work covered data-visualisations and typography, and manipulated photography — a photo taken on a digital camera with minor manipulation.

The entries will be judged and awards distributed today. The exhibition will run until August 21.

The opening tonight will run from 5pm to 7pm and there will be refreshments and music.
