University of Dubuque Commencement | Gigantic Design Co.

Digital You.

The University of Dubuque wanted to offer a positive commencement experience during the 2020 pandemic, and we took on the challenge. How could graduates “walk” virtually? With the use of Bitmoji and custom animated illustrations! Our team developed a web application and custom animated visuals that brought the graduation experience to life in digital form.

A high-end graduation experience.

We strategized a process in which students could easily participate and bring “themselves” into the virtual commencement. Through a web application, students could submit a video thanking their professors, family, friends, and others, as well as their custom Bitmoji illustrated face. We used the uploaded Bitmoji’s it to create animations where students could see “themselves” receive their diplomas at the UD’s virtual commencement from Bitmoji Dr. Bullock himself!

The token.

As the final component of the application, we developed a website where students could download animated gifs of their walks. The custom animations were not only unique to each student, but they also depicted the real life commencement space for an authentic virtual experience.
