Corcl, the fun way to get around

Seniors in VCD 410: Portfolio and Professional Development took a break from editing their own portfolios to work with a real world client, Corcl. Inspired by Vietnamese basket boats, these circular paddle boats are beginning to make a splash in the market. With an upcoming structural redesign in progress, the creators of the boat are looking for a lively new design to decorate the inside of the vessels. Students worked with the client to begin brainstorming ideas for pattern designs that reflect the fun nature of the boats.
