Alumnus Juan Behrens landed his first, post-graduation role as a Motion Designer at TBWA RAAD in Dubai. Juan has always been great at keeping up his design practice. So even though he’s working on stellar accounts, he finds the time to flex his creative muscle. He crafts around 4 illustrations each week which he posts to The Logic of Space. His goal is to continually develop his illustration skills and constantly reinvent himself.
Digital Design alumnus, Justin Cohen, should be very proud. He’s the Director of Online Marketing & Development at Surface Collective, and this week he was able to snag the company a prominent feature on FAB.com. We’ve always loved Surface Collective’s wall and laptop tattoos (A.K.A. decals) that can transform any space or computer, and make it ultra hip. And now we know, we’re not alone. It’s great to see Justin and the rest of the Surface team getting international attention. Congrats!
The video embedded below is the result of tireless efforts by Entertainment Business Management grad Jenny Bourne and an extremely talented team of Digital Design grads including Jeanette Seah, Matt Simon, Nate Slaco, Shawn Hight, Chris Harrell, and Kasey Lum.
Sponsored by Microsoft Canada, the Vancouver Economic Development Commission, the BC Technology Industry Association, and the BC Innovation Council, ‘Vancouver: Wonders Start Here’ was initially inspired by a conversation between Vancouver-based technology executive, marketer, and entrepreneur Ian Bell and the Site Director of the Microsoft Canada Development Centre, Dennis Pilarinos.
Jorge R. Canedo Estrada‘s young design career keeps taking interesting turns. Just weeks after graduating from Digital Design, he was making a high-profile video for Google. After that, he signed on with Buck in Los Angeles, and with last week’s limited release of the critically-acclaimed documentary Waiting for ‘Superman’ it’s the perfect time to take a look at some of the work he’s done there.
Waiting for ‘Superman’ is the latest from director Davis Guggenheim (An Inconvenient Truth) – an unflinching exploration of the faltering public education system in the US. Buck, in collaboration with takepart.com and Participant Media, produced the video below, which can also be found on the film’s official site. Jorge was the animator on the piece – and we think you can tell!
Big congratulations to Shawn Hight, who only just graduated from Digital Design, for winning a Salazar Award in the Motion category last week!
