On November 17th, Carter Brigham (right), one of the creators of Corcl, visited the VCD 370 class to design merit badges for a summer camp. Corcl has become popular among a number of camps. The students shared their own camping experiences and brainstormed ideas for the corcl badges. Carter will return to give feedback on their designs.

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.

On November 8th and 9th, Mary Mashburn taught two Communication Design III classes how to use the old letterpress in her workshop. She showed the students posters that had been made using a letterpress and taught them how to create their own. The two classes got their hands dirty and made two different posters using a method that involved using two colors to create a third color.

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.
