The Campus Cooler Project

The Campus Cooler Project challenged local artists, the everyday sketcher and the class room doodler for the chance to transform a blank-canvas wrapped cooler into an inspired piece of functional art.

The event was held at the University of Canberra’s new bar, The Well on 21st October 2015. Five local artists painted miniature Red Bull bar fridges. Each fridge had a custom built cover for the artists to paint over. The event was based off the globally renowned ‘Red Bull Canvas Cooler Challenge’ though this is the first time it has been hosted at a University campus. I hosted the event through the University of Canberra Graphic Design Club (as club President) in collaboration with Red Bull.

I assisted in a number of capacities, including designing and building the fridge covers, designing and producing the laser engraved trophy, designing the promotional poster, web banner and entry entry forms. I also assisted with event promotion.

The event poster incorporated artwork by Chad Barnier, PAW, Gary Dennis, Wolfe Rider-Hays, Juliette Dudley and myself.
