APPETIZERS: DIGITAL DESIGN CLASS 33 INDUSTRY SHOWCASE

On April 19th, we held Appetizers, our Industry Showcase event. Class 33 impressed faculty and industry guests alike with their presentations which included a diverse mix of interactive and motion design projects. Appetizers is the culmination of the many long hours required to complete the Digital Design program, but it also marks the start of the students’ transition to being professional designers. It is their three minutes to shine by presenting one of their favourite projects from the past year. The students’ preparation paid off with great performances by all. This event has proven to be extremely popular with industry due to its quick-fire format and the quality of work presented. Following the presentations, the graduating students were able to mingle and further discuss their projects and portfolios with industry representatives over drinks and snacks.

Congratulations to class 33!

Appetizers: Digital Design class 26 Industry Showcase

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!).
