Alumnus Mark Miller to Speak at VFS


We have an exciting lineup of speakers for the upcoming Digital Design Talks. The theme this time around? — AUDIENCE!

Date: Wednesday, November 9th
Time: 4:30pm to 6:30pm
Location: 420 Homer Street; VFS Main Theatre

The evening will kick off with the student team of Hasan Habib, Sadaf Rouhani, Marlon Soriano and Estefania (“Fanny”) Acuna presenting their recent Hope In Shadows campaign. Hope in Shadows is a charitable organization creating positive social change for people and communities impacted by poverty and marginalization. Their projects empower, educate, and provide employment training to low income people in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside and beyond. This student team worked on a multi-channel campaign to help bring awareness to Hope In Shadows’ flagship project — the annual Hope in Shadows photography contest which gives Downtown Eastside residents the opportunity to portray their community through their own eyes. The results are stunning and something you won’t want to miss!

Next up, will be Digital Design Instructor and Principal of Hundreds and Thousands Designs, Robin Mitchell-Cranfield, who recently presented at the Adobe MAX Education Summit on the topic of the evolution of interactive book design. Robin, who spearheads our ePublishing curriculum, will be speaking on the same subject and showing us how tablets are changing the face of digital publishing. Edudemic recently wrote a stellar blog story on Robin’s talk.

Mark Miller will close out the evening. Mark is both a Digital Design alumnus and a Co-Founder/Creative Director of Dark Igloo, a Brookyln-based agency that “specializes”. Mark will be sharing one of Dark Igloo’s recently launched projects — the re-branding of The Pump Energy Food to DIG INN Seasonal Market.  Mark will highlight the process behind the creation of the work and show the actual results: naming, logo development, branding, menus, signage, uniforms, collateral, food photography, wall art, napkins & packaging, crochet, embroidery, etc., as well as a Pump Energy Food video.

The event is open to students, alumni and industry. We hope to see you there!
