Update: Thanks to Paul Drohan for such a great presentation. I’m posting these photos taken by Eugene Brown from the event last Thursday.



Paul Drohan, SDCC Alumni and Creative Director of Digitaria will be on campus to talk about designing a type font and poster at an orientation to CRN 58022: Studio Practices: Portfolio Building to be offered Spring 2012 by SDCC Graphic Design. Paul is an alumni and a decade ago won first place in the AIGA Student Portfolio Review that included an original font and poster.
This dynamic 8 week hybrid class that meets on Mondays and Wednesdays from 1-2:40pm in V403A and online. This class will target design students who will be taking portfolio in the Spring of 2012 or the following year 2013 and want to work intensively to build four substantial projects for the book. Led by portfolio teachers Candice López and Sean Bacon our projects will include:

1. Designing an original type font and a project to showcase it.
2. An intensive study of identity clustered by style and technique and study of micro-trends in logo design and packaging. Development of an original identity to be applied to iconic packaging for the portfolio. This branding can then be applied to a variety of applications.
3. and 4. A great challenge for students is creating substantial collateral pieces. In this class students will develop two; including an identity manual and will then choose between an annual report or magazine design.
If you would like to find out more about this exciting class please join us for the orientation in T310 on November 3rd.
