SDCC Graphic Design Alumni Chris Do got the 2010 Emmy for Outstanding Individual Achievement in Animation for the Ravenonettes “Heart of Stone” video.
My graphic design career began at San Diego City College, where instructors including Candice Lopez were instrumental in preparing me for continued training at the Art Center College of Design. I attended SDCC in 1990, and in 2 semesters, with the support and encouragement from Candice, completed my portfolio and gained admission to Art Center. The program, even in its early stages, taught me valuable skills that I use to this day as Founder, President and Executive Creative Director of Blind Inc.
What began as a two person operation has flourished into a bicoastal enterprise serving a range of clients that include McCann Erickson, Electronic Arts, Deutsch, Chiat/Day, Amnesty International, FCB, DDB, Fox Sports Net, MTV, G4, Land Rover, Sony, Microsoft, Gnarls Barkley and Justin Timberlake. With offices in New York and Santa Monica, Blind creates visual narratives fusing art, design, technology and culture for broadcast television, film and interactive media. SDCC fostered the passion for creative excellence that drives both the work I do and my vision for the future.
