GET-thumbnail2Special guest Carter Brigham from Corcl boats visited  GDES 270- Introduction to Corporate Design classes for a mailer project. During her visit Carter gave students feedback on their ideas and students made several variations that they presented to her at the end of the class, which helped the students to move along with their project.

"Our company gives campers access to joy, self-confidence, and independence".

The company started in 2015 after a trip to Vietnam, where Carter and husband and co-founder, Harry Brigham, had the chance to paddle around bamboo basket boats. They were so enthusiastic about a new way of moving on the water that they found a maker to craft a boat than ship it to the Port of Baltimore.

The CORCL won an Honourable Mention in the international Red Dot Design competition and the GOOD DESIGN award in 2018 and has been awarded multiple patents. Two seasons ago, CORCL Boats came out with the WGWAG, a redesign of a product from the ’80s.  Stevenson Graphic Design students worked on a project for Corcl before; they developed Corcl Girl Scout patches and Corcl mat design a few years ago.

Professor Inna Alesina invited toy inventors from the educational toy company "Number Alive!".Dr. Rebecca Klemm and Stephan Sparta shared their design experience and offered students advice on making educational toys in two GDES 210 classes. The students are in the process of making educational toys that they are developing with children from the local preKs. The conversation and the feedback from industry experts were helpful to students to move their concepts forward.

The party was held in the School of Design backyard and a fun time was had by all! 

Arts Alive Participatory Event

Participatory Art Display Through a Stevenson University Arts Alive! Arts Integration grant,

Inna Alesina, M.F.A., Assistant Professor of Art and Stephanie Verni, M.F.A., Professor, Business Communication, collaborated in the Advertising Campaign class to help students gain a better understanding of the Stevenson community through the use of participatory art. Students created and integrated participatory stations around campus—a moving wall, a large chalkboard wall, and secret boxes—to solicit feedback from the community about various prompts. Afterward, students created typographic art in visiting artist Zvezdana Stojmirovic’s one-day workshop, where they shared and promoted concepts learned in class. The result of the project is exhibited in the display in the Manning Academic Center:
