Radical Craft, was basicaly a show case for Art Center students and a venue for the faculty to show you what the school is all about. The lobby had exhibits of about 5 students works, illustrators and graphic designers. Candice gave us a brief intro on what the presentation was about before she introduced a woman from the Art Center admissions board. The first speaker from the faculty was Ann Field, an illustrator and instructor at Art Center. The second was Nik Hafermaas a graphic designer. Both of them talked a little about the different programs at art center, what they teach specificaly, and about the diversity of the student body. At the end there was a Q&A session but only one person had a question (lol), also the woman from admissions talked about fafsa and scholarships at Art Center, all in all it was pretty interesting, and i got a cool broucher hehe...
Art Center Speakers
I got stuck in Mexico and missed the speakers. Looking forward to comments from anyone who attended. Was it worth it? Was it a sales pitch? Did you take anything away from the discussion? Get you thinking?
Test Post—Thoughts from Paul Rand
Here is a test message for the group to see if everything is working correctly.
Paul Rand once said, "The public is more familiar with bad design than good design. It is, in effect, conditioned to prefer bad design, because that is what it lives with. The new becomes threatening, the old reassuring."
Do you agree/disagree with this statement? Why? Have we surrounded ourselves with bad design? If so, why? Perhaps more importantly, what can we do about it?
