Visual Communication Design News

On November 15th, Brian Lagette visited Inna Alesina’s class for a third time to view the student’s final logos for the project. The students put their work together and presented their work individually. Brian reviewed each one, commenting on the student’s strong points and how they can further improve their logos for his next visit. He will be returning for one last time in December to see the students and their final edited pieces.

Matt Laumann, Director, Cultural Programs & Exhibitions for the Stevenson University School of Design, visited the Introduction to Digital Media class on Friday, October 21. Matt shared his process for designing exhibitions and environmental graphics and a mock up of the SU diversity statement installation. 

Faculty member Inna Alesina engaged students in the short charrette exercise to envision how Stevenson's diversity statement could be installed in the School of Design entrance space.  Since students are the audience for the installation, this exercise engaged students in the conversation on how they would like to see the statement displayed. Applying principles of human centered design to make School of Design spaces aspirational was the idea for the visit.

Stay tuned for the next steps.

On October 22, 2016, the VCD 440 Designing For A Target Market studio spent the afternoon collecting demographic data and visitor experience comments at the Carroll Mansion and Shot Tower venues during the American Institute of Architects’ Baltimore chapter annual Doors Open Baltimore event.

This research will be analyzed and included in a report the studio will present to Carroll Museum’s board on November 15, 2016.

This human-centered research activity and renaming design project is just one example out of many service learning projects that Stevenson University has partnered with Carroll Museums, Inc.

Students from Inna Alesina’s Relationship of Design & Business class will be working with Brian Lagette on a new and exciting project surrounding his new brand for a boutique/hotel. Brian’s second visit allowed for the students to reevaluate their proposals and think of solutions to improve them. The class will continue working collaboratively throughout the project and create a presentation for Brian. It will include proposals, future scenarios for the brand and will cover the steps of design process.

Inna Alesina's Communication Design class visited and collaborated with Irvine Nature center. The students interacted with children to design an educational toy that will help them engage with learning. The class’ goal is to practice participatory design and co-create with children. The students tested experiments and observed how pre-school children responded and engaged with them. Students plan to use the information they gathered and use it to help develop their toy designs.
