We have officially have gone through a whole month together! WOO!
In that month we have gone over the Elements and Principles of Design and their relationship to good design, worked on black and white imagery with relationships to positive and negative shapes, designed posters for the upcoming Cosmetology hair show, and are currently working on a poster competition for the City of Nashua in promoting recycling. (Images to come!)
There’s a lot of good stuff in there. While working on each individual assignment we also integrated technology and how to utilize it as another tool for a designer.
Next week we will begin our second unit, which will expand on the theory of design, but also be more focused in the importance of it. During the unit each student will research and present on a designer that they admire, or find interesting; if they feel bold I’ll be encouraging them to reach out to the designer they have researched.
It’s been an exciting year so far, and I can’t believe how fast the year seems to be flying by.
I will update soon with photos of the assignments they have done. In the meantime feel free to go to http://www.behance.net and type in #northdvc into the search criteria and you’ll find student’s work!
