Project 2 Results

Hello Students,

Overall, the main issues we need to improve is: following project criteria, process/work in class, and typography. To solve criteria, simply read the project brief! All the information you need is there. On process, if you work in class, refining your project, I have a chance to give you feedback and hopefully get you to a better place. No process = no feedback! Finally, for those of you who have not taken typography, I posted suggested readings in the beginning of the semester. We also had a couple of lectures on typography and hierarchy... I suggested you take some time to familiarize yourself a bit more with type, as it is a major part of design!

Here are the results for project 2:

Last Day to Withdraw - October 9th

Hello Students,

I was incorrect when I stated the withdraw date was the 5th. Thank you Zanaib for bringing that to my attention! In fact, this is great news as it will allow me to have your grades and all information you need before the withdraw date.

On Monday, we will stay with the plan of going over your records, thus giving you a better idea of where you stand with grades and absences.
