Bio

Hello my name is Antone Herbert. I am a current college student, artist, photographer, and local community advocate. I was raised in Jamaica, NY where I learned the value of hard work and dedication from my two lovely parents. Although divorced, my parents instilled great discipline and love into me which has helped me to grow into a fine young man. Without my parents I do not quite know what life would be like for me.

I currently attend The New York City College of Technology also known simply as Citytech. My major is Communication Design in which my focus is Advertising. Along with school I also work for a well know pharmacy and retail store famously known as Walgreen’s. I am a certified photo specialist in which some of my duties include but are not limited to customer service, merchandising, photo and poster printing, and stock work. I love to help customers and overall enjoy my job.

As a community advocate, I understand the concept of brotherly love and the loss of this notion in our community today. I love to work with my fellow young adults in finding positive activities to occupy them and to help deter them from turning to gang and gun violence, which pollutes our city and other parts of the world. My organization which I am President is the Teen Advocates Without Borders. A sub division of the Advocates Without Borders which is based out of Brooklyn, NY but engages with all of NYC. Other community work I that i participate is the Annual Step Competitions hosted by Youth Step.

Communications Design Theory Spring 2020 COMD3504-E232

Communications Design Theory Spring 2020 COMD3504-E232

Course Description This course will offer an in-depth introduction to communication design theory, examining theoretical perspectives of design practice within the larger discourse of design and visual culture. Communication models, the nature of representation, the dimensions of context and semiotics will be explored through critical readings from key documents written between the early decades of the twentieth century and the present. In this context, “theory” doesn’t mean “a hypothesis to be tested” (as in the sciences), but rather points to a set of working beliefs about how the world—or in this case, visual communication—works. Some aspects of certain visual communication theories are based on observable “facts,” but the way these facts are woven together says more about how we construct meaning than it does about empirical answers to factual questions. So why does a design professional—typically an eminently practical, hands-on person working toward a specific end for the benefit of a specific client—want or need to engage with visual communication theories? First, “doing theory” promotes a sophisticated level of reflection about design work—far beyond the touchstones of “did they like it?” and “did it serve its purpose?” Second, it encourages designers to think holistically about the contexts for their work—beyond the immediate job at hand to the larger contexts of the social, the cultural, and the historical. And finally, it recognizes the obvious: today, graphic design shapes our visual world and puts each person at the nexus of thousands of messages each day. In this course, we, as senders and receivers of such messages, will attempt to make sense of all this through our verbal discussions in class, our blog postings, and our research poster design and presentations. We will be looking at two types of theories: generative theories, that explain the “how” of visual communication; and critical/sociocultural theories that explain the “what, where, and when” of design, or the historical, cultural and social contexts. By developing the ability to look at design through these different lenses, professional designers can enhance the quality of their decision-making and have a better grasp on the multiple contexts and frameworks for clients and audiences. We can better understand and evaluate the many issues about local usability and usefulness within broader contexts of ethics, aesthetics, professional and social responsibility.
