Farewell and Good Luck

We’ve finally come to the end and I hope each of you 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 after Memorial Day and any outstanding projects should be submitted today. You have until mid-night to add any outstanding items to folder LATE OR RESUBMITTED ASSIGNMENTS.

Keep in touch. I like to see how my students progress. If you see me in the halls, say hello. If you ‘d like 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.

Thanks to Our Guest Speakers

This semester we had the pleasure of two guest speakers. On May 10th, Shayne Alexander came to share his journey to becoming an art director at BBDO Worldwide. Shayne is a recent graduate of City Tech and a former photography student of mine. He shared some of the projects that he’s worked on, talked about the process and how taking advantage of opportunities helped him get where he is today.

Then on May 17th Mike Rush, art director at Wine & Spirits Magazine stopped by. Mike is a from co-worker of mine from Black Enterprise Magazine. He shared about his journey from art student to art director at Arista Records and now at Wine & Spirits. Hopefully they gave you answers to some of your burning questions about work in the real world and designers, and their stories offered inspiration.
