Student Designs to Inspire Learning at the Library Learning Terrace

Students in Typography I review projects

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.
