At the top of a thriving scene: RMIT academic inducted into hall of fame


Dr Jenny Grigg, Senior Lecturer in Communication Design in the School of Design at RMIT University has been inducted into the Australian Book Design Association’s Hall of Fame.

The award was first bestowed in 1994, with Grigg the 12th Australian designer to receive the honour. She said she felt a sense of accomplishment to be inducted into the hall of fame and found the timing of it fitting.

“As well as this accomplishment, the induction coincides well with now being in an academic role, where I am able to give back to the industry, in terms of educating young designers through my practice, and contributing aspects of this knowledge to graphic design research, which is relatively new field,” she said.

The Australian Book Design Association’s Hall of Fame award is presented periodically to a nominated designer whose body of work and role in the book industry have made a significant contribution to the standards of book design in Australia.
