Each week we will be featuring a student from our class for our Student Profile Series, where you can get to know more about the person both inside and outside of the classroom.
If you’d like to know what’s trending, just ask the ever-fashionable Colin Kent. He brings style and flair to everything from his fashion sense to even the lovely cake pops that he helped make for the BFA Valentine’s Day bake sale. For those who were able to stop by or saw pictures from the event, you’ll probably agree with how pretty they looked.
What has been your favorite BFA project so far?
I liked the library exhibit best because it allowed me to utilize skills that I haven’t used in a long time. Also, I enjoyed designing & viewing the full-size three dimensionality of the graphics.
What is a memorable or favorite project of someone else in the class that isn’t your own?
I love Momo’s website on the Japanese Bullet Train System. I applaud her image usage and the creative way that she graphically represented the pull-down menus.
Favorite artists and/or designers:
I like the graphic color and shape elements of Matisse’s paper cut-outs. Also, I like the shocking subject matter of Diane Arbus’ photographs and the way they make you stare at them. I think Emelio Pucci was a genius of color combinations.
What would be your dream job? Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
Working at a cool place, overseas, in an office where people are nice to me.
Interests outside of design:
Cooking, travel, fashion
What did you want to be when growing up?
The black panther, they are gorgeous creatures and although they are fuzzy, slow and restful, they can kill you.
5 things that make you happy:
Music, the beach, sunshine, gardens, friendship
Something you want to learn how to do:
To speak Italian
Top 3 music artists:
David Bowie, Pizzacato Five, Horace Silver
Favorite cartoon character:
Best or most inspiration performance of any kind that you’ve seen?
I saw the opera L’Enfant et les Sortileges designed by Maurice Sendak, who was the illustrator for the book Where the Wild Things Are, at the Met in New York. The sets were so beautiful, it was like watching a painting come to life.
