Shape of Design

Posted on Feb 28, 2015 by Aalia Rahman Last Activity on Mar 1, 2015

The Shape of Design by Frank Chimero is a free odd little design ebook. Instead of talking about typography, grids, or logos, it focuses on storytelling, co-dependency, and craft. It tries to supplement the abundance of technical talk and how-to elsewhere by elevating why great work is done.  Shape is a book about objectives, and it zooms out to answer a couple big questions: How does it feel to make things for other people? And how can we do so in a meaningful, engaged way? -I do not own rights to this book. The description was taken from the book itself. You may read the book online, download the book or order a print.-

Battle of the Bands

Posted on Feb 23, 2015 by Fred Benitez Last Activity on Feb 27, 2015

This project was done in the second half of a year long design class. This was a six week project that included multiple daily grades and one final major grade. The objective is to create an original band and all of the promotional material for the band. The kids got really into it, and I brought in a few other teachers to judge the final portfolios to have a battle of the bands champion.

Comic Sans Criminal

Posted on Feb 22, 2015 by Colin Byers Last Activity on Feb 22, 2015

Graphic designers have a plethora of fonts at their disposal. However, time and time again I see people using fonts incorrectly. Fonts have purpose, they are part of a designer's tool kit. Wouldn't you want your font to be representative of your brand, product or business? Well, if you do, then perhaps you should check out this link, it's good for a laugh, but it's no joke.

Create a promotional poster for a school event

Posted on Feb 21, 2015 by Jim Babbage Last Activity on Feb 21, 2015

Select an upcoming school event (Black History Month was one of my favorites) and have students work in pairs to create an event poster, using images they have created themselves, along with supplied artwork such as a guest speaker photo, school logo and promo copy about the event. Encourage students to research public domain imagery to help add more visual strength/relevance to the poster and to learn about copyright. During the creation of the poster, students should post iterations of the work on Behance, using WIP. Teachers and students can post helpful, constructive feedback during the creation process. Once the poster is finished, students should post the final work as a project, link it to the WIP and make sure that they share credit and attribution to their partner and list the external resources they used to finish the project. After the assignments are submitted, don't just grade them; invite a range of faculty and staff to view the final work and pick their top three posters. Once the result... Read More
