Wednesday from 4:30 to 6:30 the new Bismarck Public Schools Career Academy is hosting an open house.
Come see us and check out the beautiful new building. The Graphic Design and Communications department is on the top floor at the far end of the building. When you see the bright yellow wall, take a left and look for the smiling instructors. We are thrilled with our new space and excited to show it off.
Hope to see you there.

The freshman Graphic Design and Communications students have a couple weeks under the belt. They have learned to navigate around campus and some basic Mac usage, but they are a quiet group. To help break the ice between students, the instructors divided the students into six groups and had each group design a product based on a target demographic and product type. What makes the exercise interesting is that they pulled the demographic and product type from a pool of many.
The products, descriptions and groups didn’t match, but that increased the creativity. Examples were “An expensive self-help book for teenage boys” and “Imported pain reliever for entrepreneurs.”
The exercise got students talking, drawing. laughing and creating interesting stuff.
Bismarck State College Freshman Kennon Kirwan describes the idea that his group put together during a Friday activity.
Sophomores are working on an intramural logo for BSC for class GDES 209. The first step was to create mood boards and mind maps. The images below are a result of these efforts.
