TWENTY-TWO Advertising Arts alumni mounted their theses in “Apollo: Voyage Beyond the Spectrum,” the annual best thesis exhibition of College of Fine Arts and Design’s (CFAD) Advertising Arts program last Aug. 4 to 8 at the Beato Angelico Gallery.

“Apollo,” inspired by the National Aeronautics and Space Authority’s first spaceship to land on the moon, represented the exhibitors’ risk of veering away from the usual craft.

The exhibit showcased a variety of categories such as fashion, corporate identity, book illustration, production design for animation and photography.

Sean Pascual, a photography exhibitor, said the exhibit was a test of maturity and decision-making.

“My thesis is my best output yet in terms of quality. I want to inspire others to also achieve that type of creative quality while developing their own art style,” Pascual told the Varsitarian.

Pascual advertised a local fitness center through his style of kinetic photography.

Fashion exhibitor Michelle Fontanilla, who conceptualized a brand called “Bloom,” was also enlightened by her thesis-making experience.

Fontanilla recounted commissioning a dressmaker for the first time, as well as arranging a photoshoot for the brand entirely on her own dime during the project.

Pascual and Fontanilla both received the Outstanding Thesis award.

CFAD is set to hold thesis exhibitions for industrial design, interior design and painting in the coming weeks.
