Research@Texas A&M – Website and Promotion

Research @ Texas A&M curates online research articles from the University’s colleges, schools, and System agencies. The site includes original illustrations and videos.

It is my job to curate the image selection that goes along with each published story. Every now and then, we are stumped for art to go with a news story and our graduate student illustrator takes on the task of illustrating the abstract, the bizarre, and the impossible. Visit the Research @ Texas A&M Pinterest site for an up-to-date list of illustrations.

Two-tone Newsletter Assignment

For this project, students were to choose a charitable company and create a newsletter using only two colors. These parameters were given to simulate working with a company on a tight budget, forcing us to find creative solutions – such as photo manipulation – to various design-related problems.

This project was completed by Brian Maw.

Graphic Designer Design Book Assignment

This assignment required students to choose a graphic designer—from a provided list—and write a short research paper about the designer. They then had to design an accordion fold book around their paper.

Symbol + Book Design Project

Project taught in Iowa State University’s studio, ArtGr 275: Graphic Design Technology I. Students created a mini-book to tell a visual and verbal story using Adobe InDesign, Illustrator, and Photoshop. Projects required the students to begin by creating a symbol set and then used a combination of found and self authored text.

Editorial Design – Grid Structure Assignment

Various student projects from an introduction to editorial design class that I taught. Using text provided, students were asked to design magazine spreads in a 2/4 column grid system, 3/6 column grid system, and an experimental grid system.
