It’s a wrap!


Design Essentials Cohort 24 Industry Night May 3, 2011

It is hard to believe a year has already passed since the Cohort 24 started the first class at 9am on Sunday April 11, 2010. After many countless late nights (or early mornings), hair pulled out of frustration, recycled pieces of paper with not-good-enough thumbnails, many mind maps in search for the innovative concept, after swearing at the computer (whether it was running Photoshop, Illustrator, Dreamweaver, Flash or InDesign) cursing its stupidity (when we are all too aware it’s really our fault)…words cannot describe how I feel now, standing at the other side of the tunnel.

On Tuesday May 3, 2011, my cohort together with other schools in the BCIT Digital Arts program held an Industry Night at the Roundhouse in Yaletown. Since I wasn’t planning on attending the actual convocation, the night served as my graduation ceremony. Lots of hard work was put into preparation for the show. All the work goes into the job search in the real world.

We’re told that we need to give out business card. Designing my own business card occurs to be one of the most difficult tasks! I suppose it’s hard to be both the designer and the client! I was unable to commit to a design which I want to mass produce. With luck, I stumbled upon a wood press block with the letter ‘G’, which I used to create some unique business cards a couple of days before the show. =P I’m pleased that everyone seems to like my hand-made effort.

Special thanks to you who came to the show and shared the happy moment with me (in no particular order): Homa, Jen Phu, Winnie So, Silvia, Gary, Len, Frank, Vincent and Brenda, Patricia, Angus, Tim and Carmine, Catherine, Horace and Lillian (do I get her name right?), Joyce, and Angie.

Last but not least, I want to thank my fellow classmates in DE Cohort 24 for making last year super fabulous! More than one instructors think that we have raised the bar for the other cohorts to come. Let’s keep raising the bar! Good luck and stay in touch!
