Space created to connect students with curated, industry-related content.
As a graphic design educator, a constant challenge is making students aware of all the cultural connections that impact and relate to the field. It’s also a challenge to constantly curate and maintain ever-changing topic resources for each class. So, as a faculty, we decided to create a small website that could serve as a solution. Working with faculty and students, we defined flexible content areas that could be populated with ease—History, Inspiration, People, Practice and Library. I designed, programmed and led the execution of a simple responsive layout for access and dissemination. The site is ever-changing and is maintained with the help of NIU Visual Communication students.
