CMND+S is a thesis show hosted by graduating UNLV Bachelor of Science Graphic Design Students, a first show of its kind on campus. It is the culmination of an all-semester long research and exploration project which encompassed design topics ranging from UI/UX, package design, branding and advertising, stop-motion animation, to web and typeface design & development.
Students chose their specific topic based off of career goals, and their own special interest in the subject matter. They were tasked with doing in-depth research, which included presentations, sketching, ideation, and refining of their ideas while being guided by their professor. The outcomes were theoretical, practical, and sometimes fantastical, but nonetheless have real-world application and utility. CMND+S shows the transformation between idea and application, and in the end, student and graduate.
