DID Day 2022
26 Sep 2022
DID Day was extra special this year. Not only was it Diploma in Interior Design’s (DID) 20th Anniversary, it was also DID’s first physical face-to-face Post-Pandemic event in the last two years!
DID Day was started in 2016 as a day of celebration, bringing together existing students with Alumnus and industry to witness the Semester One achievements of DID Students. Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, this was on hold for two years, replaced with a virtual gathering on MS Teams.
So it was indeed a privilege to physically showcase the third year students’ 1 to 1 scale - 9 Grid project which translates the experiences of protagonist Chiro from anime “Spirited Away” into a 1 to 1 scale plywood intervention. Also on display was the second year’s retail projects, translating brands and brand values into spatial touch points and experiences. The highlight being DID Memories! Photos from both tutors, present students and alumnus were collected and displayed. Documenting DID’s studio culture, students’ works, overseas trips and candid graduation moments.
With over a hundred Alumnus joining in DID Day 2022, it was heartening for the teaching staff to see so many familiar faces spanning across different cohorts, interacting with their juniors and recollecting past moments together.
