Digital Design alumnus and current graduate project mentor Vinny Morales recently created the Main Titles for OFFF Mexico 2014. OFFF is a global post-digital culture festival that has been hosted in Barcelona, New York, Lisbon and Paris. Many contemporary designers and artists have participated such as Joshua Davis, Stefan Sagmeister, John Maeda, Neville Brody, Kyle Cooper, The Mill, Digital Kitchen, Ben Fry & Casey Reas, Golan Levin, Chris Milk, Rob Chiu, Julien Vallée, Paula Scher, Rick Poynor, Erik Spiekermann, Dvein, Erik Natzke, Vincent Moon, Daito Manabe, Jessica Walsh, Ze Frank, and Alex Trochut. OFFF has an extensive international network to share work that fuses design, art and technology, and to provide a forum for inspiration through lectures and workshops.
Vinny explored the idea of the umwelt which is the German word that “defines the perceptual world in which an organism exists and acts as a subject.” It defines how we experience our world by perceiving data as signs.

Vinny presented his work in front of a packed crowd in Mexico City, and he shared his thoughts with us:
“OFFF Mexico 2014 was great and full of creative artists and designers. I had the opportunity to not only talk about the titles but as well introduce and talk about “Design-in(g) Space”; the creative process and thinking behind my work. The response from the audience was phenomenal!”
The creative process for this motion design piece can be found on Vinny’s Behance page, and this project has also been featured on iDnworld.com.
Great work, Vinny!
