SEATON REVITALIZATION CHARRETTE

On February 18th twenty IAPD students participated in a charrette to imagine and develop concepts for a new desking system for the Seaton Revitalization Project.  David Richter-O'Connell and 5th year, Erin Heiden, led the 2nd, 3rd and 5th years through a 'day in the life of studio' function structure and then broke then into 5 teams to create the ultimate work space in 50 sq. ft!  Well done IAPD teams!  We got some great, thoughtful, innovative 'near environments' and will continue to develop the ideas in the APDesign Desk Task Force.

GRAPHIC DESIGN COURSE FOR NON-MAJORS

If you are interested you can now take a graphic design for non-majors class (ART 300 ZB) this fall.  It is a 3 credit hour class with no pre-requisites.  The course description of the course is as follows:  The formal material of graphic design, typography and image, must work together effectively in order to communicate the specific content of a project.  Through the creation of design artifacts, students will learn the essential descriptive vocabularies of graphic design, and how a designer's choices about type and image in a piece shape the content of design.
