academic: Print Systems

  • Design Systems
    graphic design, second and third year level
  • A primary focus of my design pedagogy includes the complete concept and application to a design system. At Miami University, this concept is practiced within all levels of student education, as seen in these samples.

    Primary focus on within systems remains consistency—all pieces need to appear related, yet able to stand alone. This includes individual images in a slide series, unique pieces from an integrated communication campaign, or even page spreads from within a book.
  • weekly world news: students are to choose a headline per week for ten weeks, designing a series of related images to convey the idea of that headline. Project by Colleen Griffiths, looking at natural disaster-related headlines.
  • weekly world news: students are to choose a headline per week for ten weeks, designing a series of related images to convey the idea of that headline. Project by Andrea Fiegel, looking at articles related to President Obama.
  • print systems: magalog. Students were to design a catalog / magazine hybrid, developing a new brand, identity, and product line for this series. Final deliverables included the final booklet design and a branding standards manual. Project shown by Liz Chmela.
