The cinematic universe has equally witnessed Vela’s transformational power through her film poster designs. Her artwork for “The Foreigner’s New Adobe” was a key factor behind its recognition as the ‘Best Short’ at the Chinese American Film Festival (C.A.F.F.). Additionally, her design for “The Thirty Three Stories” played an integral role in the film’s journey to becoming a finalist at the WorldFest-Huston International Film Festival.
Vela’s collaborations have spanned industry giants such as Netflix and ARRI. Her design for the poster of ‘Pedacito De Carne,’ presented at the ‘Narrative Short Film Incubator for Women of Color,’ was met with critical acclaim at the 2023 Los Angeles Latino International Film Festival (LALIFF).
Outside of the digital world, Vela’s creative talent has graced physical galleries. Her solo exhibition ‘Show-Life Together’ showcased a series of animal artworks, while her contribution to the 2022 Visual Art Exhibition of Asian Artists in America highlighted her versatile creative expression.
