Stevenson Scholars Exploring Materials and Rapid Prototyping Design Ideas

Nineteen Visual Communication Design Stevenson Scholars spent the morning of February 14th, designing prototypes with Inna Alesina, visiting SU design professor.

High school seniors from as far way as New Jersey and Richmond, VA, explored the design process and created products from their new-found friends’ ideas.

Each student was given a series of steps to follow to generate and create their design solutions. Each step took less than 5 minutes! To learn more about design thinking and specifically Inna Alesina’s process, watch “Ready, Set, Design.”

Congratulations to AVCD juniors and seniors who presented their portfolios to the AVCD advisory board. Eleven reviewers provided feedback to 34 students on December 10, 2014.

This annual event provides crucial feedback to AVCD design students as they develop their design expertise and strategically plan for their employment in graphic, motion and interactive design studios.

Wide Angle Youth Media portraits
“I was honored to host a group of young media students from the Wide Angle Youth Media group yesterday at Stevenson University. I held a short mini-lecture on using grid-spots, gels, snoots, and radio controlled studio strobes. They were so excited and enthusiastic! Here are the portraits from the students.” — Jefferson J.
