Maksis Darzens (Class of 2016)
The Top Designs 2017 exhibition was officially launched on Friday 17 March 2017 at the Melbourne Museum, Carlton.
It was a night of celebration and accolades for 2016 Tintern Grammar VCE Student Maksis Darzens and his family. Maksis was one of 16 students statewide to be recognised in the Top Designs exhibition for his outstanding Visual Communication and Design folio. His stunning Year 12 folio was created last year with the support of his teacher Ms Amanda Atchison. As Maksis embarks on his double degree of Mechanical Engineering and Industrial Design at Monash University, it was a special night to reflect on his journey thus far. We were very proud to be able to share the night with Maksis and see the reaction of the guests when viewing his work.
