Tom Ipri, the Liaison Librarian for the College of Media Arts and Design, recently launched the Westphal Research blog.
Five Drexel students were recognized at a reception on Tuesday, January 17th, for their designs which will be prominently featured on the fabric screens of the Hub at the Library Learning Terrace. The moveable signs are part of the furniture, designed by Herman Miller, and offer a flexible way to create privacy for consultations.
Designs from Lauren Poole, Soha Qadir, Gerre Mae Barcebal, Danielle Rowan and Seth Fowler, all sophomores in the Antoinette Westphal College of Media Arts and Design, were selected from over 100 projects submitted by Typography I students.
The Libraries invited sophomore graphic design students in the Antoinette Westphal College of Media Arts and Design’s Typography I classes, taught by assistant professors Shushi Yoshinaga and Julia Colton, to develop unique designs for Drexel University Libraries’ Library Learning Terrace.
During the fall 2011 term, students worked under tight deadlines to create typographical compositions. Chosen designs will be printed on fabric screens that are part of the Herman Miller furniture currently located at the Learning Terrace, including those on the large stationary hub.
Projects were on display at the Library Learning Terrace between November 28th and December 5th. During that period, members of the campus community were invited to provide feedback on the projects and help select which pieces will be chosen for installation.
