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/

On October 6, 2016, Christina Bittinger Melito (Art Director for Frank Strategic Marketing and 2006 VCD alumnae) and Andrew Melito (Data Analyst for T. Rowe Price) presented the theory and practice of integrating web analytics in the design process to the VCD 440 Designing For A Target studio.

The information presented during the lecture offered the VCD majors an opportunity to discuss SEO’s (search engine optimization) factors; to analyze UX (user experience) best practices; and to engage with accomplished web design professionals.

On September 29, 2016, the VCD 440 Designing For A Target studio traveled with the Irvine Nature Center to the Baltimore American Indian Center to discuss clan encampment scenario proposals. This Irvine project is slated to open in the fall of 2017 in Center’s newly acquired Bauer property.

Over the course of two-hours, an in-depth discussion unfolded. Topics discussed included traditional encampment building structure materials and systems, encampment lifestyles, and spiritual practices. Next steps for this project will include envisioning the encampment site layout, the walking experience to the encampment site and designing wayfinding graphics.

This encampment design project is just one example out of many service -earning projects that Stevenson University maintains with the Irvine Nature Center.
