Both projects were created in Professor Austin Shaw’s Digital Media Design III class where BFA Design students focus on creative problem-solving for advanced motion design projects. The creative brief tasked students with concept and design development as well as animation production for entertainment brand packaging.

Both Saville and Schrenkeisen utilized effective design techniques to produce compelling visual stories in their respective projects.
