Elegant Packaging

Digital Design students continue to impress with their charming and elegant packaging designs. The Packaging course is taught by Vida Jurcic, Principal & Co-founder of Hangar 18 Creative Group. The students build on their knowledge of branding gained from earlier terms, and are guided through a formalized process of designing a package, starting from the conceptualization stages, through integrating logo design and establishing the hierarchy of information, to building a prototype of the finished package. They gain the skills to create a product package that will stand out on a shelf. Have a look at the results from Class 24.

2013 SIFF trailer Is No Small Task


Still from 2013 Seattle International Film Festival trailer by Christopher Harrell and Juan Carlos Arenas

VFS Digital Design alumni (class 15) Christopher Harrell and Juan Carlos Arenas, and current designer/animators at World Famous, a production house in Seattle, have collaborated as directors to craft the trailer for the 2013 Seattle International Film Festival (SIFF). It was a joint project between WDCW (Wong, Doody, Crandall, Wiener) and World Famous. The final product was 60 seconds, but over 900 man-hours were logged to create the miniature models and sets before filming took place.
