Rethink Scholarship Video By Rory O’Sullivan

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.

    I wanted to spread the word (video?) about Rory’s fantastic visual journey. Unfortunately Vimeo doesn’t play all that well with my wordpress hosted blog, so I went off to Youtube to find the video there.

    What I found instead was this:

    The same video… Except that another guy’s claimed the credits for it – Chris Serravalle.

    Who’s the real creator? Rory or Chris?

    @Sandra – Chris Serraville composed the music to the video, it says so in the about section on the right side.
