A group of DigiPen Institute of Technology Singapore students completed a challenging task during their recent visit to DigiPen’s Redmond, Wash., campus.
In just three weeks’ time, the visiting Bachelor of Fine Arts degree candidates created a 30-second animation meant to visually depict the city of Redmond’s 100 years of growth and development.
Using pop-up images of evergreens and high-rise buildings, the short segment captures the town’s evolution from an early fishing settlement to high-tech industry hub.
The finished project debuted at a recent Redmond City Council meeting and will be used by One Redmond—a public-private partnership dedicated to the city’s economic vitality—for ongoing promotional purposes.
“We thought it would be really interesting to get [the students] to visualize what Redmond is,” DigiPen executive Raymond Yan told the council members, according to the Redmond Patch newsletter.
