COMD Communication Design Internship Coordination Site

COMD Communication Design Internship Coordination Site

This site is designed to help you find fieldwork/study situations of approximately eight hours per week at an internship site approved by the Department Internship instructor such as an advertising agency, graphic design firm, corporate design office, publications art department, photography or illustration studio, TV or multimedia production company. Students will be required to keep a learning journal of their internship in the form of a blog using Openlab. A portion of the class will be devoted to presenting and sharing experiences with classmates. Students will learn how to assess their talents, update their resume, and promote themselves and their work through social networks. Students will be required to setup and maintain at least two social media networks such as: Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest. The instructors for this class are there as mentors if you have not yet found an internship before registering for the course. However, the instructors do not find an internship placement for you. It is your responsibility to find a position that fits your personal career path and help you transition to full time employment upon leaving the halls of CityTech. Ideally, you will use this site to find an internship the semester before taking the COMD 4900 class.

COMD3501 IDENTITY DESIGN SP2023

COMD3501 IDENTITY DESIGN SP2023

In this course students will learn how to embark on the branding process for an invented company or institution from start to finish, culminating in a finished set of brand guidelines and extension project. Each weeks’ lesson will build on top of the other, giving students a full understanding of what it would be like to not only create an identity design, but an entire branding system, using a real-world model typical with most branding studios and agencies. Students explore the role of professional designer as they are challenged to create a comprehensive, multi-piece presentation showcasing all aspects of their invented company. To start each student will receive a client type that they must base their invented company on. There will be at least 1 other student in the class with the same business type, creating a cohort. The idea is that throughout the process each student can have creative brainstorming sessions with their cohort, which is something that is very common practice among design teams in the professional world. Students will also learn about tools they can use to enhance their brainstorming sessions like Pinterest and Miro, which will help them throughout the semester.

Citytech Top Picks  – Mapping food Choices Around College

Citytech Top Picks – Mapping food Choices Around College

At Citytech, the dining options are somewhat limited, with just one cafeteria located in the Namm building. Unfortunately, its menu selection is also quite restricted, prompting many students to seek alternative meal options off-campus Understandably, students value accessibility, quality food, affordability, and a conducive environment for studying or socializing when choosing where to dine. For this project, we will create a map that shows the locations of the spots most recommended by students, includes the reviews, and also updates in real time. We will begin by conducting a survey to find out which bakeries, cafés, and restaurants are most popular among students. Through this survey, we aim to delve into the reasons behind their preferences, whether it’s the diverse menu offerings, the cozy ambiance, the affordability, or other factors contributing to their satisfaction. By collecting and analyzing this data, we aspire to compile a valuable resource that will benefit every student on campus. Sharing our findings will ensure that all students have access to information about the best dining options nearby, enhancing their overall campus experience. Next, we’ll create a map showing a ) .5-mile radius around the school in ArcGIS Pro. A link posted on campus will continuously collect student ratings. We’ll connect an RSS feed to the survey to the map so the most updated survey results will show up on the map.
