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.

Top 5 InDesign shortcuts to share with your class

Posted on Aug 25, 2014 by Daniel Scott Last Activity on Aug 25, 2014

Hey everyone. I've created 5 Adobe InDesign shortcuts as both printable handouts that you can give to your students. The problem with getting shortcuts in class is that my delegates only remember a few. So we've made these with the help of my London based design friend Alex Mulder . This is a desktop wallpaper version too if you find they are helpful to remember new InDesign tips. I'd love to know if they are useful for you. Also let me know in the comments if there are other tips you think should be made into designs like these. Thanks everyone! Dan

Choose an image of a contemporary celebrity or political figure and use Photoshop to manipulate the graphic, transporting your chosen subject to another era in time. Use the selection tools to select and move images, use the transform and crop tools to size of the image. Select a background layer to for your manipulated image.  I choose a picture of Michelle Obama for my final project. #PD editing images

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...

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"
