Six months' toil has culminated in an end-of-degree exhibition of stunning computer graphic design from eight Whanganui students.

From New Zealand inspired wallpaper and fabric to an interactive children's book, the work is on public display at the Community Arts Centre until Thursday.

The students; Erika Reid, Steve Warrington, Gary Francis, Daniel Jamieson, Tim Morrell, Shane Reichenbach, Leighton Roe and Sunshine Kapoor, will graduate from UCOL with bachelor degrees in computer graphic design.

"We worked on our projects for the last six months of our degree. It's a huge relief to have them finished," Ms Reid said.

Two graduates had already found jobs while others, like Mr Francis, were considering working remotely. "You can pretty much work anywhere around the globe from home with fibre internet," he said.

One student's work might even become the new logo for the Whanganui School of Design. The logo is among the work Mr Morrell has designed towards creating an identity for the school's 30th anniversary next year.

The exhibition is open between 10am and 4pm.
