VFS Digital Design alumna (and past Impact Award winner) Cherie Korol is feeling pretty proud right now about iQmetrix’s XQ Browse for iPad design being such a hit at the International CTIA Wireless 2012 convention last week (May 7 – 10, 2012 at Ernest N. Morial Convention Center, New Orleans, Louisiana).

Cherie tells us: “I was tasked with writing the requirements (designing the wireframes) and creating the over all look and feel (Interface design) for the XQ Browse for iPad. Optimized for iPad 1/2 & 3, XQ Browse was unveiled this week at CTIA Wireless as part of a bigger retail solution showcase.”

“You may be familiar with our desktop offering of Browse, which was already in place before I started here at iQmetrix. I was tasked with bringing Browse to the tablet space late last year and have been working on it since. I worked closely with (Digital Design Industry Mentor) Anne Forkutza to solidify the requirements and bring the project to fruition. Although Browse tablet is now just in beta, we’ll be moving forward with making it a permanent part of our retail solution here at iQmetrix. I’m very happy to have worked on the project, and feel somewhat beside myself when I see people using and testing Browse on the New iPads. Livin’ the dream :)

VFS Digital Design Helped Me Find My Dream Job

Graduation day in the Digital Design program at the Vancouver Film School left me with a variety of options when it came to picking a career path. I didn’t have to wait very long to start my career, because on that day, between the graduation and award ceremonies, there was only one choice I wanted to make. So when it came time to decide whether or not to accept the job offer put before me, I did what all job candidates would do: I chose a role that would enable me to do what I had been trained for. I would never have gotten this opportunity without the help of the program’s faculty, most notably Amber Bezahler, Department Head for Digital Design at VFS. I wouldn’t have had the knowledge and confidence to take the job without the guidance from my teachers and mentors at the school.
