Las Vegas Academy Students Design First New Year Motion Graphics for Stratosphere Marquee

 

Las Vegas Academy (LVA) graphic design students are helping spread New Year’s greetings along the Las Vegas Strip.

Special motion graphics created by three LVA students was recently selected as the winner in a design competition and will be displayed on the Stratosphere Casino, Hotel & Tower’s marquee on New Year’s Eve just as fireworks launch off the Tower to welcome in the new year. This is the first time animation composed by local students has ever appeared on the Stratosphere’s marquee.

This is the third design project created specifically for the Stratosphere by LVA students. The projects give students “real world” experience in submitting designs, meeting with clients and presenting their final project. All student teams were a combination of second and third year design students. Many of them plan to pursue a graphic design career.

The winning animation was created by Morgan Black, Lasca Stafford and Tara Tran. The Stratosphere presented each of the three winners with a one year subscription to Adobe Creative Cloud. The winners and all those who submitted a design also received a Tower Pass good at the Stratosphere, tickets for Big Shot, X Scream and Insanity, the world’s highest thrill rides and a buffet for two. (Photo: http://cl.ly/image/0n1Y1z0x280T)

The public can view the winning motion graphics at Midnight on New Year’s Eve on the Stratosphere’s marquee during the fireworks. On New Year’s Day, the winning motion graphics, along with all the motion graphics submitted in the contest, will also be played throughout the day.

“The students would never have gained such great accomplishments if the assignment for motion graphics was only for class,” said Ashley Stroud, Graphic Design teacher at LVA. “They are really proud and excited that everyone’s video will be played on New Year’s Day.”

“It’s every artist’s dream to have their work displayed publicly. In this case, it’ll be seen by thousands on the Las Vegas Strip’s most iconic property and on one of the busiest nights of the year,” said Paul Hobson, Vice President, General Manager Stratosphere Casino, Hotel & Tower.

International pin up model, professionally trained dancer and celebrity judge on Oxygen Network’s “Best Ink” Sabina Kelley will join the cast of Stratosphere’s original production show PIN UP™ for six special performances in late July 2014, when starlet and 2011 PLAYBOY Playmate of the Year® Claire Sinclair is at Comic-Con in San Diego promoting her comic book, Wondrous:  The Adventures of Claire Sinclair.

“Sabina is the perfect guest star for PIN UP,” said Sinclair.  “With her gorgeous tattoos and striking platinum-blonde hair, she will bring a rockabilly edge to the show that I know all of our PIN UP fans will adore.”

Kelley will guest star in PIN UP during Sinclair’s absence Thursday, July 24, 2014 through Thursday, July 31, 2014.  (PIN UP is dark Tuesdays & Wednesdays.)

Kelley owns and operates Bombshell Tattoo Removal, a laser tattoo removal business located in Carey Hart’s tattoo shop, Hart and Huntington, and is an active member of the pitbull rescue “Pinups for Pitbulls.”  Because of her involvement with the nonprofit, a portion of ticket sale proceeds from Kelley’s limited engagement will be donated to “Pinups for Pitbulls” by Stratosphere on her behalf.

“We are happy to support an organization that aims to educate the public about the history and temperament of these dogs, and look forward to Kelley’s performances in PIN UP,” said Matthew Mascali, VP of Entertainment and Food & Beverage at Stratosphere Casino, Hotel & Tower.
