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.
It’s cool when people show how passionate they are about something, and when Cindy Tsui talks about design, you can see just how much she loves it by the huge smile that comes across her face. The same can also be said about the smile that appears if you mention Harry Potter or Lord of the Rings to her (and if you haven’t read the books/seen the movies, you’re probably better off not telling her).
What has been your favorite BFA project so far?
What is a memorable or favorite project of someone else in the class that isn’t your own?
Aurora Adkins’ Monterey Style Guide + Jonathan Judal’s Oakland Style Guide. This was a monster of a project with several different components like website, logo, kiosk, and book design (to list a few). Both these individuals did a beautiful job at giving great attention to detail for each and every element. Overall, they were excellent projects whichever way you looked at it.
