Designs created by Drexel typography students during the fall 2011 term were installed on the Herman Miller Hub at the Library Learning Terrace during the spring term. Four separate designs were installed on a total of six panels in the spaces’ focal Hub.
The designs were created during typography I classes guided by Westphal College assistant professor, Shushi Yoshinaga. Students were invited to a celebratory reception honoring their hard work and dedication to the project in January 2012.
On February 2, 2012 a Herman Miller blog featured the designs created Westphal College typography students for the hub at the Library Learning Terrace. Click here to read the article.

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.
