Today I toured the Young designer’s Forum at the Hilton Hotel. It is a mini exposition that showcases young designers currently enrolled in MFA programs. I viewed the work of designers such as Nathaniel Sinnott, Dwayne Burgess, Izumi Inaba, Dan Stratton, Melissa Torchia, and Holly Griffin. Viewing their exhibits showed many examples of different presentational techniques. Most of them utilized drafts, photos, models, and research. A few used video, props, and large-scale art. I took up a “collection” of resumes for research to improve my own. The scenic designers had incredibly detailed models, which I looked at everyone trying to discover the materials that they used.

On a side note, I did research plagiarism, but it will take a few more days to compile the information.
