The End

“I’m so glad we had this time together…”

We’ve finally come to the end and I hope you each are looking forward to continuing your studies in Communication Design and here at City Tech. I also hope that this class created in you a love for type and design, and challenged you enough to explore on your own.

Final grades will be posted by May 31, 2016, and any outstanding projects should have been submitted today. You have until mid-night to add any outstanding items to folder LATE OR RESUBMITTED ASSIGNMENTS.

Stay in touch. I like to see how my students progress. If you want to keep up with me on social media, I can be on found on Twitter and Instagram.

Have a great summer and the best of luck in the rest of your studies.

Guest Speaker Shayne Alexander

On May 16th we welcomed former City Tech student, Shayne Alexander to our class. He spoke to us about life as an art director at the prestigious advertising agency of BBDO.

Along with sharing samples of projects that he has worked on, Shayne also shared with the class the path that lead to his current position and took questions from the class. Hopefully it was an encouraging hour for everyone in class.

A Brief Video Excerpt – It’s a bit shaky but it will give you an idea of the discussion.

 

Final Exam Reminder and Final Project

This is a reminder, but everyone should know by now that we are having our final exam on Monday, May 23. The topics will include everything we have covered this semester—including all reading assignments, all class discussions and whatever is here on our website, where many resources were made available throughout the semester.

Also, be sure to submit your final digital Chap Book. And remember:

  • Please name your files correctly: COMD1167_FirstInitialLastName_ChapBook2 (example: COMD1167_MBrown_ChapBook2Do not use your full name. It will make the file name too long and it’s not necessary.
  • If you need to submit different versions to show all the functionality, create a FOLDER with your name and place your project files (corrected named as above) in the folder. If you have a SWF file that has video and/or audio files, you need to place all those items in a resource folder. Place this folder inside the folder with your final project. If these files are not added, I will not be able to correctly view your final SWF file.
