Menu Layout Assessment Items

Posted on Aug 26, 2014 by Gale Bigbee Last Activity on Aug 28, 2014

This is a menu layout assignment I distribute to second semester Graphic Communications students at South Central College (SCC). I'm always working to develop objective grading rubrics on sometimes subjective attributes. Some of the Visual Design rubrics have been used and modified to fit particular assignments. I am constantly fine tuning the rubrics to try to be as objective as possible. At SCC, we have workflow software so all files get ripped through the software to ensure the integrity of file construction is present with all of the layouts for print. This assignment also shows some of those steps in a very simple format.

Advanced Typography / Neighborhood

Posted on Aug 11, 2014 by Andrew Kutchera Last Activity on Aug 28, 2014

The following assignment is done over three class periods. Students are encouraged to really think about the place that they are studying, rather than just creating a slick branding typographic treatment. Students have had great results because they explore how a variety of letterforms can come together in one or two words. ————————————— Choose a local neighborhood with which you are familiar. Develop a list of eight characteristics you want to convey. Edit this list down to four or five complimentary terms. You will design the name of the neighborhood to reflect your entire list of  concepts. Note that this is not specifically a logotype project, although these skills will be useful in designing identities. Your project could include – but is not limited to – modifying letterforms, combining diverse typefaces, altering the baselines/kerning, handwriting, and photography. In the sec... Read More

Advanced Typography / Phrase Exploration

Posted on Aug 10, 2014 by Andrew Kutchera Last Activity on Aug 11, 2014

I like the exercise described below since it offers students a way to explore the way letterforms interact, and it also prompts a discussion of the meaning of letterforms, as well as typographic terminology. This exercise also requires that students really dive into the software and explore the how to use multiple programs within one project. ____________________ Select an adage or proverb. Search for typefaces or lettering samples which feel appropriate for your message. You should employ magazines, type specimen books or your own photographs as your material. You will use your samples to create eight collages which spell out your phrase. It's important to select a wide range of typographic choices, not just ones that make sense on first viewing. In the second phase, you will select the most successful collage and redesign it six times using the computer. Make sure to keep the underlying concepts and rough composition, but test...

Typography / Kerning Exercise

Posted on Aug 10, 2014 by Andrew Kutchera Last Activity on Aug 21, 2014

After I explain the syllabus in the first class period, I have students dive right into a kerning exercise. While the Adobe Software in general and type designs in particular have become so much better over the years, it seems that new students don't really see the micro adjustments that are necessary (or possible) with kerning. So, I have them kern one word using Trajan – by hand! After they layout their letters on their desk, they glue their results in the middle of a horizontal sheet of paper. Depending on the confidence of the student, the hand's on part of this exercise can take any where from 20 minutes to 45 minutes. After evaluating their results, they move to the computer and they choose a different word to kern using Illustrator. They are able to see and kern much better after working by-hand first. After we discuss their digital results, I like to show this video (see below) which discusses the origin and current meaning of Trajan (movies). While the video seems light, it's the perfect...

Informal learning and identity formation in online social networks by Christine Greenhow* and Beth Robelia

Posted on Aug 7, 2014 by katherine Yamashita Last Activity on Aug 7, 2014

This review is from one of my students: Colin Couchman: I think that Greenhow & Robelia articulate quite well the issues inherent in negotiating identity politics in a social media age.  Within the article, they discuss issues of identity within social network sites and question aspects of digital citizenship, technology fluency, and the viability of such platforms within learning environments. This article could be of particular interest to those teaching within the secondary panel, higher education, school administrators, and/or management in higher education. Kathy's additional comments, I think this article is important as it looks at how extensive Social Media applications are in youth and young adult "real lives" and how excluded or restricted the use of these media in education. Fascinating findings worth the read for those who are interested in transformative curriculum development. Article Citation: Greenhow, Christine andRobelia, Beth(2009) 'Informal learning and...

Design a Logo - Add to Business Letter and Create a Website

Posted on Aug 7, 2014 by Dawnette Brenner Last Activity on Aug 23, 2014

Students will use their professional business letters they created in language arts class in this lesson. Instructions for creating a logo are contained within this lesson, tutorials are provided and step-by-step instructional plans are listed to make it easy for any teacher to follow these plans. Once your students are done creating logos, they can add them to their professional business letters, and pretend they are the Marketing Director of their new company. Have them introduce their product or service in the letter and they can even design goods the company will market. Once finished, students can create a website, tutorials for doing so are listed in the links within this lesson plan. I like to refer to this as a "Business Unit on Language Arts literacy and Digital Logo Design"

Geometric Polyhedra Lesson

Posted on Aug 7, 2014 by Dawnette Brenner Last Activity on Aug 7, 2014

A common core aligned geometry lesson curated and altered to support 21st century learning skills. Students will learn first about calculating the surface area of a polyhedra (they should have been exposed to this concept prior to this lesson but not completely necessary) and then draw and create a "net." Students will identify using key vocabulary, the necessary parts of the polyhedra and manipulate several virtual nets and shapes. Students will work in teams to create several paper versions of geometric shapes and finally after watching tutorials, make one in the Adobe product of their choice. Students will finalize their lesson and display their understanding of polyhedra in a final written essay, which should include a picture of their finished polyhedra.

Self Grading Quiz

Posted on Aug 5, 2014 by Jody Campbell Last Activity on Aug 22, 2014

I was asked by a number of members to share an example of one of my self grading interactive PDFs. So here is very basic version that you can modify for your own use.  I included a blank template that is secured with the exceptions being the ability to fill in fields and make comments. I set it up this way so the student can't reformat the quiz. I use to use MS Word but without fail I would quizzes back where the student would delete all the questions and just give me answers (sometimes I would just a single paragraph for a 20 question quiz!) or change the typefaces, etc.  To enter your own questions into this template go to properties and use the password  EDEX1 and then edit text under the tools option. I also included a graded example of the template and here you can see the text fields that the student uses to reply to a question are scrollable so if they need more room it does not reformat the whole quiz. So when I get a quiz back from a student I just check off the correct answers and... Read More

Color Theme Lab

Posted on Jul 28, 2014 by Jody Campbell Last Activity on Aug 27, 2014

The lab consists of a provided PDF handout to which a PSD template is attached. The students are instructed to identify three field of study examples that they find inspirational to their work. The students are shown how to find large “free to use and modify” examples via Google’s search engine. The student places the example in the space provided in the PSD template. The next step for the student is to up the image to kuler.adobe.com and to use its color generator to create a color theme. Kuler is an awesome resource that I use outside of teaching in my professional role as an illustrator and graphic designer but when uploading an image its auto feature often jumps to irrelevant areas of the picture which works out from an instructional point view because it forces the student to think about what color is important and what is not then manually adjust the theme. After creating the color theme the student downloads the .ase and loads it into PS’s swatches. Then using the... Read More
