Phillip Zmood - GTS Monaro on campus at RMIT

RMIT University alumnus industrial designer Phillip Zmood returned today to RMIT Building 2 in Bowen Street where it all began. Phillip studied industrial design in room 2B1 in the early sixties and would go on to be the first Australian Head of Design at General Motors Holden. Phillip's work on the HT GTS Monaro formed a significant part of his portfolio to become a member of the Design Institute of Australia, an organisation in which he is now a Hall of Fame member.
