Design Jeopardy

We just got done with a fabulous game of design jeopardy and I randomly check the blog Speak Up where they mentioned that Type was a category in double jeopardy this week.... the real jeopardy with Alex Trebec.

Anyway, Armin Vit posted the questions from the round so you can check them out if you want to.

Happy Designing!

TUESDAY : 2.10.07

Just a reminder the next meeting is this Tuesday at 5:30. We will let you know the results of the studio tours + setting up a screen printing workshop that will happen fairly soon. Also, the National Student Conference is in Dallas this Spring. I think we should get a head start on fundraising for that event so that hopefully we can all go and not have to suffer the costs ourselves! I know I want to go to Dallas and not pay!

What Happens When the Grid Goes Down?

A lecture by Nancy Sharon Collins about design in the wake of Hurricane Katrina

Design is communication. Communication is power. What, then, happens when the lights go out and questions of moral responsibility and leadership arise? Few outside the Gulf Coast can comprehend what it is like when everything goes down. Our dear profession, so dependent upon technology, does not see the forest through the trees. All the hardware, software, planning and databases mean very little without water, electricity or roads. Join us as KCAI alumni Nancy Sharon Collins presents a journey into the heart of a disaster, and demonstrates how design managed to survive.

About Nancy Sharon Collins
Nancy Sharon Collins owned and operated the graphic design firm Nancy Feldman Studio in New York City from 1978 to 2004. Clients included Clinique, Vera Wang, Waterford Wedgwood, Prescriptives, Revlon cosmetics and Curve fragrance, The Metropolitan Opera Shop and the Museum of Modern Art.

Her specialty is building conceptual relationships between technologies ancient and emerging. Collins’ personal research is in a very narrow field: hand engraved social stationery, which is almost a lost art. On this, one of her favorite topics, she lectures, designs for private commissions and works with die engravers and pressmen across the world.

From 2004 to 2005 she was Visiting Professor of Graphic Design at Nicholls State University in Louisiana. Currently she is a Visiting Assistant Professor of Graphic Design, Loyola University New Orleans and is Education Director, AIGA New Orleans. Mrs. Collins is a member of the AIGA Center for Sustainable Design Task Force, was instrumental in the Mbulance Design Relief Vehicle project in 2005, and is a contributor to The Hurricane Poster Project. She holds a BFA from the Kansas City Art Institute (1976) and an MFA from the Hartford Art School (1978), both in Graphic Design.
