APPETIZERS: DIGITAL DESIGN CLASS 33 INDUSTRY SHOWCASE

On April 19th, we held Appetizers, our Industry Showcase event. Class 33 impressed faculty and industry guests alike with their presentations which included a diverse mix of interactive and motion design projects. Appetizers is the culmination of the many long hours required to complete the Digital Design program, but it also marks the start of the students’ transition to being professional designers. It is their three minutes to shine by presenting one of their favourite projects from the past year. The students’ preparation paid off with great performances by all. This event has proven to be extremely popular with industry due to its quick-fire format and the quality of work presented. Following the presentations, the graduating students were able to mingle and further discuss their projects and portfolios with industry representatives over drinks and snacks.

Congratulations to class 33!

Experimental Light Painting with Class 34

As part of Experimental Practices, an elective term 4 course taught by Dougal Muir, there was a fun session of light painting photography that took place last week. I helped to guide the shooting after sharing some tips on technical requirements and some sources of inspiration. We made use of a camera remote, a tripod, slow shutter speeds, gels, and various LED lights. Check out the following light painting results by Digital Design Class 34!

Animated Typeface – League Spartan

It’s that time again where students in Term 3 at VFS Digital Design get to work on the Animated Typeface project. Recap: It is a collaborative class initiative where each student makes a second long animated sequence for 3 – 4 glyphs. This time League Spartan was used and this typeface was created by Tyler Finck, Micah Rich, and Caroline Hadilaksono.

These sequences needed to be 25 frames long using three or fewer of the chosen colours. It has been amazing to see the incredible work.
