Protecting and submitting your work
When you submit your final class work, demonstrate a dedication to your design practice and show a sense of professionalism. Protect your work from smudges, wrinkles and bends by covering it with a piece of protective tracing paper.
- Cut a piece of tracing paper to the width of your work with about 1″ overhang on the top.
- Fold the 1″ overhang and tape it with a piece of drafting tape to the back of your work.
- Protect your work from spills, rips, and other accidents by carrying it to and from school in a protective portfolio.
- Write your full name and the project number (ie: COMD Project #1) on the BACK of the work in lower right corner.
- Work independently (and silently). Feel free to listen to music using headphones!
- By the end of class you should have completed at least one of the two compositions.
- Individual meetings with Professor.
- Finish Inked Sketches (1 stable, 1 ambiguous) to present to class for critique.
NOTE: Don’t forget to protect your work with tracing paper. Points will be deducted from your grade if your work is smudged, wrinkled or bent.
- Complete all Design Process Blog posts Phases 1-3 for Project #1.
We will use the class blog to present finished work during the critique next class.
