Congratulations to Nicolas Diaz, Diana Hamdan, Lashelle Harper, Joseph Olenik, Mia Moore, Richard Vega, and Randall Witte. For the last 3 years, they have been successfully navigating through Westwood College design curriculum that emphasizes the roles of social context media and aesthetic in the production of visual language.

Graduating students’ portfolios demonstrated well-established foundation of formal, aesthetic and analytical knowledge, and a nibble response to the constant change in visual communication, burgeoning technology and floods of data. Take a look at the below images.

As you may have noticed, being “green” was a hot trend for 2009. The new year does not seam to be changing the course of the path. If anything, this trend will perhaps continue to evolve even further.

For the first project of the year for GD 480 I choose Greenies as the subject company to create a 3D Promo package. The reason I selected this company was the fact that I liked the play on the name Greenies rather than the company’s sustainability.

Whether you agree with theses trends, follow them or just ignore them, I just thought I would share a few samples from the class. Enjoy!

And what a better way to demonstrate the project then to devour your finished product.
