Our 2013 Student Work Sampler features the creative work of our talented students and shows the results of what they achieve during their time at Drexel University's Westphal College of Media Arts & Design. Film & Video students Austin Moore and Corey Branigan edited the montage, which includes motion graphics by Graphic Design alum Alexa Lareau. The team worked under the supervision of Film & Video Professor Jocelyn Motter. The “Westphal Student Work Sampler” features the song “Settle Down,” by Richmond, Virginia-based band Goldrush, who recently released a limited edition album “Making Moves,” on the Music Industry’s MAD Dragon Records.
"BEGIN," produced by Don Argott’s 9.14 Productions and Drexel University’s Enrollment Management, is a short narrative that highlights the creative process at Drexel University's Westphal College of Media Arts & Design; the common thread tying together our 17 undergraduate and 6 graduate degree programs. "BEGIN" was directed and produced by Argott whose credits include “The Art of the Steal” on the controversy surrounding the move of the Barnes Foundation to its new home on the Parkway and “School of Rock.”
The annual Drexel Fashion Show promotes the work of our Fashion Design students. The 2013 Drexel Fashion Show featured special collections by 24 graduating seniors and graduate students, plus collections of swimwear, evening wear, lingerie and tailoring.
Drexel's top-flight Fashion Design program is recognized as one of the top 10 fashion programs in the United States and one of the top 20 programs in the world. Our rigorous curriculum consists of a unique six-month co-op experience that complements coursework in conceptual design, presentation skills, CAD, and manufacturing methods. The curriculum covers all facets of fashion design, from men's, women's, and children's wear, to swimwear and couture. Students are prepared for careers in fashion design, styling, advertising, and computer-aided and technical design. Small studio classes simulating the professional environment represent the core of a student's education including final critiques by practicing designers.
