A student creativity challenge at QUT

Over 20 QUT (Queensland University of Technology) students from a range of faculty areas took part in an Adobe Creativity Challenge where participants are encouraged to work with a team to design & share a digital solution (with Adobe tools) to a problem.

In this case, the problem was based around promoting one or more of the 17 United Nation Sustainability Goals. Solution options could include any of the following …

  • a 1 min video made with either Adobe Spark, Premiere Rush, Character Animator, After Effects &/or Premiere Pro.
  • a mobile app design with Adobe XD & Photoshop
  • a poster/flyer with Adobe Spark, InDesign, Illustrator &/or Photoshop
  • an animation with Adobe Animate
  • a drawing/painting/graphic art piece with Fresco, Photoshop or Illustrator

The initial briefing (kick-off) was held as a virtual event via MS Teams on Thursday September 23 and the Showcase was a virtual event on Wednesday 6th October.

Here are samples of what the students produced
