Congratulations to Digital Design class 30! On April 23rd, we held our graduation ceremony and Awards Show for class 30. Red Borrowman, Program Manager, oversaw the ceremony and introduced each speaker. Louise Lee, Head of Department, delivered the keynote speech, and Nida Fatima, Motion Design Instructor, offered one last lesson as the elected instructor speaker. Kirstin Smith and Kelsey Hemphill were the elected student speakers who represented the graduating class.
Congratulations to the winning teams from our recent 45-hour SLAM. These intense and fun collaborative design challenges take place three times per year. They provide great opportunities for students to test their design skills and to learn from each other. Slams also allow students to delve into cutting-edge techniques or technologies such as projection mapping and augmented reality. This Slam introduced students to the concept of geocaching.

Digital Design Class 31 students recently created light painting images as part of a lesson in the Experimental Practices course. After an introduction on the technical requirements regarding lighting and camera settings, the students worked in teams to capture interesting light trails and patterns. Take a look at their eye-catching work.
We’re proud to share some recent packaging design projects by Class 30. They were completed for a course taught by Vida Jurcic, who guided the students through the entire design process. She covered branding principles, copy requirements, regulations, and guidelines for preparing files for printing. The results are stunning.
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 Blackout Midnight was used and this typeface was created by Tyler Finck.
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 DD31’s turned in.
