Crafting a vibrant look for an expressive group of students.

The project we should have priced by the ton.

Crafting a vibrant look for an expressive group of students.

As part of Chroma, CCAD's annual thesis show (and the first show that represented work from students across all majors), we developed a bold portrait style befitting the art and design students. We built a simple but effective set with opposing lights, each with interchangable color gels. With each light totally isolated from the other, we were able to create dozens of unique looks and color combinations, pre-edit for each color, and move through well over 200 portrait sittings efficiently.

The series made a huge splash in the community, uniquely setting the stage for an event which has become an annual draw for alumni and creatives around Columbus.
