Appetizers April 16 2013 Class 24

On Tuesday, April 16th, 2013, VFS Digital Design held it’s Industry Night event, Appetizers, for it’s 24th class. Appetizers is the penultimate event for Digital Students, held just two days before Graduation and the Awards Show (Thursday, April 18, 2013). It begins with a short meet-and-greet at 5:00pm, followed at 5:30 by the Graduate Project Presentations, which goes for about 90 minutes. Each student gets 3 minutes to introduce themselves, to explain the problem they’ve addressed, their process for coming up with a creative solution, the tools they mastered to help, and then show a brief video piece of their results.
