In the Graphic Design and Communications classes the topic usually revolves around published work – either on paper or the internet. As a creative exercise, the freshmen students attempted sign design with a twist.
The students formed into groups and were asked to create the look and design of the sign and then produce a physical model of it.
The concept came from “Caffeine for the Creative Mind” and was only modified slightly for this exercise. Students were offered three choices – sporting goods for the first Olympics, a caveman campground or a medieval knights training academy.
All of the finished pieces were interesting and very creative. The construction methods were particularly interesting and the students did an excellent job working in groups.
