A press release was sent out last Monday (February 25, 2013) from Storypanda, announcing a partnership with VFS. As anyone who attended the recent Digital Design Talks Childish Charms would know, there is a long standing association between the program and the interactive storytelling company by way of StoryPanda’s Art Director and Digital Design grad Simon Vieira. Now we can add two more Digital Design grads to their team: Amrit Pal Singh and Hasan Habib. The two graduates from Digital Design’s 21st class have worked together on producing two books for Storypanda that reimagine classic tales. The first of these, Wallers Wild West has just been released for the iPad and is available at the App Store.
VFS Digital Design students Andrea Garza and Vanessa Aldana won a Salazar Award in the Video & Motion category for their title sequence project, Calin Island.
Andrea and Vanessa’s win at Salazar Awards 2012 follows wins by Kim Oxlund (Salazar 2011) and Shawn Hight (Salazar 2010).
Amrit Pal Singh received recognition as a finalist for his grad project, Mr. Bumbel’s Museum Of Toys.
The Salazar Awards are handed out every year by the Society of Graphic Designers of Canada (GDC BC) in recognition of “BC’s most talented and promising design students and their inspirational work.” This year the awards were held on May 11, held at UBC Robson Square.
Congratulations to everyone!
Amrit Pal Singh, Digital Design grad and director of Mr Bumbel’s Museum of Toys (which we showcased recently), was featured in the Dieline’s Student Spotlight section for his design project entitled Spooky Chocolates.
