If you haven’t seen it yet, hurry – well, click furiously – over to A Brief Guide About Bridesmaids. This is a term 3 infographic project by three Digital Design students, Nicolas Alexander, Yaniv Fridman, and Amber MacKay. It’s a quirky, lighthearted look at bridesmaids, their history, and their cultural importance – look at it as a response to that pejorative phrase “always a bridesmaid.”
Check out this snazzy student project done by Boca (aka Marcos Ceravolo) and Ryan Uhrich for the most recent term 4 Motion Design Class in the Digital Design Program. The piece is called Typographics. Here’s what Boca had to say about the piece on a DD discussion board:
“Our objective was to use type as the main aesthetic and design element to create awareness about the evolution and main characteristics of typography. Both the music and voice over used in the piece make reference to 1950′s TV and Radio advertising. We are targeting designers and non designers who have an interest in typography and want to learn more about it.”
Well, another round of VFS graduations have come and gone.
All programs celebrate differently. Many graduations involve watching the students’ final films or reels. Some grads involve the shedding of joyous tears (we’re looking at you, Acting!). And some — like Digital Design — celebrate awards-show-style, recognizing huge achievements by graduating students.
