Advanced Typography / Neighborhood

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

I’m constantly seeking ways for my students to use their computer literacy skills that will incorporate other subjects too.

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

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

Simple Logo Project

Posted on Aug 5, 2014 by Mike Skocko Last Activity on Aug 16, 2014

This article by John McWade sparked an idea. What if students were asked to read it and then asked to design their own simple, elegant brand using John's advice and examples? The personal logo/branding project is my way of introducing design fundamentals & Illustrator (appropriate type, kerning, tracking, leading, the Shape Builder Tool, the Align Panel, etc.) and it almost always begins with the most hideous results imaginable.* Perhaps this approach will yield better initial results. *Olivia, the student featured in that video is now a third-year design student at NAU.

Creating a New Classic Work of Art Project

Posted on Aug 4, 2014 by Christia Bowden Last Activity on Aug 4, 2014

Have the students choose a classic painting they would like to manipulate and have them add, remove, and distort items to make it represent a book they just read, an historical place, or anything that is relevant to the class. Maybe it should represent them or convey a message of some sort. You can make it fit almost any content being learned. After they have created their image, have them share it with the class and explain it’s meaning. Having and creating the graphic representation will also help them retain what they learned better than they would without it.

Illustrator Appearance Panel: Type

Posted on Jul 31, 2014 by Judy Durkin Last Activity on Aug 4, 2014

This is fun one-hour lesson. Students will watch an Adobe TV video: "Mastering the Appearance Panel". They will then open an Illustrator file that show examples that they can click to see how the Appearance Panel works. The Illustrator file also contains the directions for the assignment. They will Type their full name four times and set them in different type faces. Using the Appearance panel they will add fill, stroke, and affects to alter their originals. They will turn-in their Illustrator files which I will check for experimentation, legibility, creativity. Take a look at the names that I used in the Illustrator file. I wonder if any of the students will notice the word-play.

What's Wrong With Me?

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

This is a project I present to upper level students in the graphic design program. The project requires an intermittent to advance working knowledge of Photoshop, InDesign and Illustrator. I should mention that the project’s intent is not to train a pre-press professional but to educate graphic design students on pre-press processes and how to properly build files that are error free, saving time and thus cost in reproduction. The project is not a comprehensive example of all the issues I present in this class but the first in a series. I may post the complementally projects at a later date. The project is introduced several weeks in to the quarter and after all of the topics contain within have been covered and I am confident of student comprehension. Those topics include registration color, transparencies, FPO, missing fonts and images, cropping, color modes, object layer options, ink limits, spot colors, override master, bleeds, resolution, text wraps, true type and postscript fonts, over...

Project Release GRA490 Graphic Design Internship

Posted on Jul 28, 2014 by Tarek Bahaa El Deen Last Activity on Jul 28, 2014

Students produce an ambient media advertising which is communication of information in ubiquitous and pervasive environments. Like messages on the backs of car park receipts, on hanging straps in railway carriages and on the handles of supermarket trolleys. It also includes such techniques as projecting huge images on the sides of buildings, or slogans on the gas bags of hot air balloons. Ambient media in the field of advertising are often mixed with ambient media developed based on ambient intelligent technology.
