Caleb K. Wilson – Master of Innovation Design application materials

top

My background is varied, but the running theme seems to be that I follow my creative mind. Below, you will find examples of film, video, graphic design, web design, social engagement, and marketing work. I’ve included published work, as well as pieces I’ve been featured in for tv and print media.

Though my path to this program is an unusual one, I can’t help but feel uniquely suited for it. The Master of Innovation Design program at Wichita State is even described as answering the call from the technological community for “innovators from multiple disciplines to come together as a team and translate ideas into something transforming through non-traditional means.”

What better experience, then, is working in the fields of film and video, where every step of the process is about collaboration and taking a creative idea from a text document to a technologically complex production? Work in marketing has allowed me to see the end result, and how an incomplete product, something lacking early on, only makes things more difficult when you have to sell it. Finally, graphic and web design, both, have helped me discover a process for creativity and creation (I’ve included the article where I discuss this, below. But you can also read it here.)

I’m very excited for my potential experience with the MID. The skills I’m looking to strengthen are in the areas of product development and design. With this degree, I hope to achieve a greater level of understanding of the entire production process, meet collaborators that I will want to work with in the future, and leave with a prototype for a product I hope to market in the future.

C2C Digital Magazine (Fall 2015 / Winter 2016): “Making Your Classes Pop with Innovative Visual Design”

Making your class stand out from the rest is simpler than you think. In examining my process for sprucing up online courses, I have found a pattern in how I go about quickly getting results that make classes more visually appealing, content more digestible, and subjects more engaging.
