Graphic Design News

Date: Oct 2016

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.

The screening of The Illusionists, a documentary film about the globalization of beauty ideals and how those ideals have effected society, drew in a large crowd on September 28th.  Lori Rubeling served as the moderator for the event. After the screening, panelists Dina Fiasconaro, Soheila Gaussy, Heather Harris, Sehlah Khalid Butt, Laura Smith and Geetha Suresh answered questions raised by The Illusionists. They invited the audience to speak about their experiences with body image as well as sharing their own stories.

The film is not available to the public yet. For more information, visit http://theillusionists.org/
