On Saturday, November 12, AIGA Nebraska held this year’s Show exhibit—their most prestigious juried competition—at KANEKO in Omaha. Show highlights some of Nebraska’s most outstanding design work by students and professionals. UNK’s Visual Communication and Design students took home a total of six medals. Aaron Fisher won both a gold and silver medal for his multimedia work with the Buckle, Casey Adams took home a silver medal for his Missoula Osprey logo, Chris campbell won bronze for his British Columbia Lions logo and identity system, Janelle Huebert won bronze for her Novo Sustainable Wear logo and identity system, and Kassidy McConville won bronze for her photograph titled “Foundation”.

fisher-2Aaron Fisher talks about his piece “Where It’s @” which won a silver medal: “This is a video promoting Buckle’s Fall collection. I was responsible for editing video clips that were filmed during a photo shoot. To help build a story out of random video files, I animated the screens of each person’s phones to build dialogue. This was very much inspired by shows like Sherlock and House of Cards.”

fisher-1Fisher’s additional piece for the Buckle, titled “Break Out your Light Denim,” won a gold. He had this to say about his concept, “This is a stop motion video made to help promote Buckles light colored denim. The video shows dark colored jeans moving in a uniform circle until one of the jeans turns light blue and breaks up the movement. The concept of the video originated from the message Buckle wanted to communicate to guests.”

When asked how he felt about the wins, he responded, “I hadn’t placed in AIGA before, so having two projects win in AIGA’s student show was pretty exciting.”
