It’s All Good

Thanks for a good first day of class today, everyone. The PDF of the syllabus and schedule are in the BOX, as well as the PDF of the brochure project.

Want to be inspired by design for good? Check these out:

Have more examples? List them in the comments.

Wednesday, bring in your 3 narrowed down topic choices, with potential approaches or solutions. You will present your ideas to the class, and come away with a firm decision for your brochure topic.

And don’t forget the Flickr exercise!

New PDFs in “the Box”

Between hospitals and blizzards, we’ve had some scheduling setbacks. As a recap, on January 27 we talked about some things that I said I would make available via PDF. You’re probably already well into these steps, but see the corresponding files in the box:

  • Research | Process | Map
  • IP and Image Links

And, time’s up!

It’s the end of the semester. Final books were written, designed, produced, and exhibited. And read, graded, and returned. This is it. Some of you are graduating, some have another semester or so to go.

This blog was an experiment—the first time I’ve supplemented the classroom and email communication with an online forum, since I started teaching AVT 498 in Fall 2006. I didn’t post as much as I had hoped, but I never said the blog would be a substitute for class lectures, discussion, and peer interaction. Teaching is a part time job for me, and time management is a struggle at any level. I think maybe the “Box” was the most useful part. But then, I don’t really know since I didn’t get a lot of feedback. Useful? Not?

Well, there’s one last PDF in the box (with live links) as you set out on the next part of your journey. It is, of course, the PDF version of the small booklet I gave you today. If you are job hunting or just inspiration hunting, check it out. I wish you well on your journey. Find out what you’re passionate about, what makes you happy, and the money will follow.

You all inspire me, and I hope you’ll drop me a line once in a while to let me know what you’re up to. Peace Corps, Navy, Freelance, Fashion, Inhouse Design, Photography, Sneaker Design, Human Rights Activist… AWESOME!
