I got an email a couple days ago from KN reader Rory O’Sullivan who wanted to let me know that he’d finished a video promoting the Rethink Scholarship at Langara College. They’re offering $18,000 and a 3 month internship for aspiring designers and art directors, all you need to do is fill a sketchbook full of ideas or rebuild the sketchbook into something else.
To illustrate this idea Rory created a visual journey, presenting tips for better ideas. Each page is filled with a helpful tip and small brilliant ways of visualizing them, like opening a chest up to illustrate the idea of trusting your gut. I also think it’s great how he reveals some of the messages through the use of a black light and embossed words. He came up with so many clever ideas and it’s just terrificly done.
