One of the major events I document during the academic year is our Industry Showcase, Appetizers. It takes place a couple days before graduation, and it acts as a launch pad for students to transition into becoming professional designers. Students interact with industry throughout the program, but this night represents their largest opportunity. They’re given three minutes to present their design solutions from their favourite projects of the past year. Class 26 was poised and impressed the audience with the range and quality of their interactive and motion design work. We also had some musical chops displayed (Great job, Bill!).
Agencies were well represented in the crowd with attendees from FCV, Go 2 Productions, Hootsuite, Sequence, Unbounce, Giant Ant, Artifex Studios, Axiom Zen, iQmetrix, Tidal Interactive, and Ayogo, to name a few. We had one of the largest turnouts in the history of this event. Following the presentations, the students were able to mingle and further discuss their projects with industry guests over drinks and snacks.
Congratulations to class 26 on another stunning show.
