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.
'It was important to integrate the University's learning outcomes in this project,' Dean of Libraries, Danuta A. Nitecki said. 'The Library Learning Terrace is a space that should inspire students to take ownership of their environments to become lifelong learners through many different learning activities.'
The Libraries suggested terms for students to use in their designs. These terms included Drexel University's learning outcomes as well as unique words used to describe the Libraries. Announcement of the winning submissions will be made in January.
For more information, please contact Jenny James Lee at 215-571-4095.
