What happens between the first inkling of an idea and its final outcome in published form? And how does what happens along the way affect the look and tone of the finished work? No matter the medium---it might be a CD cover, design for a matchbook, poster, theater program, artist’s book, shopping bag, or a continuously evolving new media platform---every sort of publication goes through a number of essential steps, each building and expanding upon the last until the desired results are achieved. Students in this advanced arts workshop will explore and apply critical thinking to each of these steps through a combination of short-term and in-depth, semester-long projects (one of which will be to create a visual journal), guest lecturers, directed readings, and field trips, and in the process discover some of the many ways in which concepts might be investigated, clarified, and ultimately realized. Readings may include "Sagmeister: Made You Look," "Looking Closer 5: Critical Writings on Graphic Design," and "Trek: David Carson, Recent Work."
