A BIG custom props commission.
Precision cut foam pieces with plenty of sanding, assembly and application of ‘Screen Goo’ (a custom coating painted on that makes the show’s 3-D projections look spectacular). Hraefn Wulfson, Russ Adams and Crit Killen combined forces to create these for USANA’s annual convention at the Energy Solutions Arena.

Ogden-Weber Applied Technical College was the first trade-tech school in Utah to develop a branded mascot to promote its educational mission and programs.
Robert Hirschi, multimedia journalist for the Salt Lake Tribune, created a behind-the-scenes account of some of the steps in this creative process as well as the people behind it. Interviewed are OWATC creative directors Brock Porter and Jenny Everson, plus costume maker Jen McGrew with Katrina Kirkland-Cornia. The documentary details the mascot from concept to realized costume for a performer to wear at job fairs, parades, etc.
