REVEAL 2017 Showcases the Best of JWU Design

5/18/17 | The College of Engineering & Design’s annual exhibit is always a highlight of the academic year, and REVEAL 2017, this year’s installment, was no exception.

REVEAL is the first show of student work to utilize the light-filled first-floor gallery space in the new John J. Bowen Center for Science & Innovation. The juried show highlighted wide range of senior work, from print and package design, graphic design to web design and video/motion graphics — including a working game prototype.

At the center of the exhibit were 10 standing walls, each curated with the work of one student or student group and their designs or projects. From Taryn Hann’s sly political illustrations to Thomas Luke Jennings’ inforgraphics about the dangers of fracking, there was no shortage of timely content. Erin Tucci’s Bee Kind branding and shoe designs highlighted the plight of the bees, while Hailey Cwynar’s elegant signage for the (fictitious) Providence Aquatic Sanctuary brought ocean conservation to the forefront.

Gallery visitors could test their hand-eye coordination by playing “The Disturbance of Fermi,” a working game prototype by Cammie Niles, Ben Laudicano and Erin Quevado.

On the food branding side, Amanda Bieniek and Thomas Luke Jennings presented logos and menus for Halyard, a Chefs Table project by College of Culinary Arts students.

In parallel, engineering and robotics students from all levels showed off their own final projects and works-in-progress — like Patrick Wynn’s 3D-printed robotic hand, which is controlled by motion-capture via two cameras.

Earlier in May, Engineering & Design students took part in another annual tradition, the Portfolio Review, where students curate the best of their own work and talk design process with an invited group of peers, professors and working designers.
