Digital Design students and grads made a big showing at the Salazar Student Design Awards last night with a near-sweep of the Interactive & Motion Design category. It was the very first time VFS had work up for Salazar consideration. Impression: made.
Carlos Guimaraes took top prize in the category with his Angolan hip-hop motion project Sindicato. Stefan Belavy (Link.TV), Jeff Greenberg/Eric Wada (Orgasmic Brand Condoms), and Ryan Uhrich/Marcos (Boca) Ceravolo (Typographics) all picked up honourable mentions.
The awards are run by the BC Chapter of the Society of Graphic Designers of Canada, and our friends over at Emily Carr hosted the ceremony. After the awards, guests were treated to a presentation by design luminary Ian Grais.
Winners of each of the three categories took home $500, and winners and honourable mentions alike will get their work featured in the GDC newsletter, distributed to design firms across Canada.
Unfortunately, Carlos was out of the country and couldn’t accept his award in person, but the rest of the gang were out in force.
Great work, everyone!
