Back to school + pricing your work

One of the best things about teaching is coming across students, later to become successful designers. To be honest, I am always humbled when they keep in touch, drop a line to share how they’re doing or even stop by when in Boston. Over the summer I was lucky to hear from current and past students, and even meet a few for coffee or a visit to an art exhibit. Thank you all!

Matt Convente (CFA ’08) just shared the following link from Jessica Hische, discussing pricing your work. The Dark art of Pricing is a glimpse into a freelancer’s daily contemplation. Thanks so much Matt!

Wishing all a great semester if you’re (still) in school (don’t be late to class tomorrow!) and hello to all our ex-seniors out there, we miss you!


Junior type – follow up

Juniors are exploring typographic hierarchy, form and composition along with connotative and denotative interpretations for their Contemporary Perspectives Lecture Series posters.

Yesterday, junior type class raised discussions about content and context informing each other in a creative process. Should designing a poster for contemporary designers associated with a definable aesthetic, follow their style or not? Can Swiss modernist stand for Avant-garde/deconstruction? Where (and how) do we  define the line between new interpretation and missed opportunity?

Can’t wait to see their final pieces!

New Voices, Unique Visions – exhibition opportunity

AIGA Boston presents the Best of Student Community:

We invite all undergraduate, recent graduates from Spring 2010, and graduate graphic design students to participate in this juried show. School projects, internship and pro-bono work created between August 2009–November 2010 are eligible.

Students must be currently enrolled at an accredited community college, college or university. Recently graduated seniors from Spring 2010 can only submit work that was created in school—for instance, a senior thesis or capstone project. (This can include work from an internship, or pro-bono work completed while you were a student.)
