Just to clarify, I’m not a senior and all of the work shown in this post aren’t my own. However, I wanted to share what some of the work looks like in the vc department over at UTA. Sorry about the instagram quality photos…it’s the best I have at the moment.
This is what the gallery setup looks like. I prefer this setup over last year’s, where all of the designers’ portfolios were spread out on a table in the center of the room. It was a mess because the work on the walls weren’t associated with the designers’ portfolios and it just didn’t seem like an efficient way to display everything.
The top left photo is one of Rene Jiminez’s illustrations. I really admire that sort of style and the designer had a lot of work displayed, which gets kudos from me because that person must have been on that work grind all year. I also think the bottom right photo is from the same designer ~favoritism~ LOL
Above is “RARE” group branding project. One of my friends Bernie took part in this design. I have to say that this was one of the nicer projects I saw. The good design and ideas are there but the only thing I might have worked on a little more is the way everything was displayed. The angle of the spice box made it difficult for me to see so I had to tip-toe over. There’s a lot of print so some things had to lay flat or were folded up. Maybe a little more thought in the way it was placed could have benefited the overall presentation. I also thought the project would have been better displayed against a wall because that awesome “RARE” plexiglass imprint thing totally disappeared into the background…but then again the walls are white so it doesn’t even matter?
Above is “VOY” group branding project. I wasn’t too sure on who the designers were (I better go check that out) but this was another one of my favorites. The presentation of the brand was thought out more with the different levels everything was displayed at. Makes my eyes happy. The color palette was right down my alley and the vintage “stamp” feeling I get when I look at it makes me want to buy something. I know it’s asking for too much but having a fake ipad/iphone on display is so corny. I’d try getting a real one and locking that ish down so no one can steal it. Maybe trying displaying it through a plexiglass box (somehow manage any glare) and secure it to the pedestal thing. Just a suggestion.
I love seeing the senior galleries. They make make me excited for all the work I’m going to do and the day I get to display my own stuff. YAYAY
