The Chief Guest, B. Suresha, along with the dignitaries of the institute, flagged off the exhibition with much enthusiasm. He was very impressed by the quality of the students’ works, which they created throughout the three years of study, and ranged from posters to merchandise to artworks to even short films. The Mini, Minor and Mega/Live projects that the students had done in their fifth and sixth semesters were specifically highlighted.
Branding works such as developing a logo, visiting cards, letterheads, point-of-purchases, danglers, brochures, package designing, website design, etc., were a part of the exhibits. About five members from Infosys were invited as industry experts to review the works of the students.“ These are perfect pieces of marketing and the creativity of the students is commendable was the impression of Mr. Bilagirirangan (Infosys).
“I think Pixel Kraft is an excellent opportunity for us to portray every project and creation that we have worked so hard to make throughout the six semesters, and it also has provided us a platform to get opportunities to work in the industry,” shared Niharika Muthappa, a participant from B. Sc. (Visual Media)
“The portfolio exhibition was a good experience for us as students. It gave us a chance to showcase ‘who and what’ we really are, as soon-to-be media professionals. It also made us aware that each work that we undertake, may it be academic or personal projects, needs its due attention and cannot be ignored. Every piece of work that we do, if done efficiently, can be used to showcase our own skills in that area, and this exhibition was a culmination of all those projects and hours of work that was put working in our area of interest. Looking at our work being displayed was a pleasing sight and a very encouraging one as well. A big thanks to the Department of Visual Communication for having organized this exhibition,”- said Zubin Paul, a participant from M .Sc. Visual Communication.
