Digital Design – wearables and the prototyping phase – OOMPH!

Our DD29′s have been busy in the workshop coming up with new and innovative tools and uses using various technology and household items. In this class we got into rough and tumble prototyping of our ideas. Students have been researching various sensors and technologies to help them realize their solutions to their briefs but this lesson was more about form factor and what it means to make a truly successful ‘wearable’ product.

Here we see Henry self-sewing his prototype basketball sleeve. Henry is designing a sleeve that will help bballers with their shot.

Congratulations VFS Digital Design Class 26

On December 12th, 2013, the Digital Design program held their Graduation and Awards Show for the 26th class. It was a bittersweet moment for the students, faculty and staff. Spending the equivalent time of three intense years of college packed into one can only have the effect of creating extremely strong connections.

The graduation ceremony consisted of a number of speeches and presentations. Elizabeth Hudson, Program Manager of Digital Design, started the proceedings and outlined the scheduled order of events. Miles Nurse, Head of Digital Design, was the keynote speaker and he reflected on the challenges and successes from the past year. He then offered some parting words of wisdom.  Myron Campbell, Senior Instructor, was selected to present by the students, spoke next. Myron advised the graduating class to stay confident, humble, and connected. He stressed the importance of continuing their personal development and to “stay awesome” above all. This event also marked the last day at VFS for Myron, who has been an integral part and one of the major driving forces of the program. We haven’t seen the last of Myron though: He’ll be back for a Draw By Night event this year.

Christian Arias-Carrasco and Scott Dutertre spoke on behalf of the graduating class and produced a fitting tribute to their classmates. They created two videos for the ceremony. The first video was a humorous tale about their journey through the program and allowed them to include some inside jokes. The second video allowed each graduate to tell a heartfelt story about another member of the class. The packed audience members, full of family and friends, could get a real sense of the bonds that have been forged over the course of the year. I don’t think there was a dry eye in the room.

Digital Design Summer Intensive : Superhero Super Work

Superhero Emblems Jimena

Day 4 of the Summer Intensive started with Senior Instructor Myron Campbell introducing himself, showing some of his incredible work, and giving the students an overview of the full Digital Design Program, including some amazing examples of work by former students from the three main streams: Communication Design, Motion Design and Interactive Design. The Summer Intensive students have been focusing their efforts on Motion Design, but they were interested in a fuller picture of the program. Some stuck around afterwards for a more informal Q & A with Myron — and from the tenor of the discussion, it looks like we might be seeing more of them in the future. From the way they’ve been devloping their projects over the last intense 4 days, it’s clear that they’re as committed to learning the necessary tools and techniques as they are in having fun with them.
