A constant thought when I conceptualize.

2 years ago. On the first day of one of my VC classes, my process of design thinking changed completely.

We had the usual first day agenda....attendance, congrats you made it past sophomore review, here's the syllabus, here are the learning outcomes set for this semester.....you know what I'm talking about. The, "oh it's the first week of classes, nothing will be done this week", kind of attitude. 

Well, little did I know that my professor would say something, that I'm certain I took to literal at the time, something that would have me rethink my outcomes at different design points in my design process.

Ok, ok, I'll get to it.

He said, "when researching and designing, don't ask yourself, what does this mean - ask yourself, what can this mean." 

Four words, what can it mean.

Through the last couple of years that has come on strongly throughout projects, jobs, life in general. I have gained a better understanding on perspectives, relevancy, meaning, at times empathy. I use those four words in every aspect of my life, at times very abstractly, but at other times literally. 

Those words always have me, in my design process, diverging just a little bit more. Then, when I think I have diverged enough....I go a little bit deeper. 

Launch: Senior VCD Show Exhibit

Launch: The Driving Forces Behind Design 
May 01 2014 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm.

As a Visual Communication student at Herron School of Art and Design we have been waiting for this day since our existence here at Herron. Senior Show night!!

The Senior Show is conceptualized, set-up, and promoted by us: the Seniors of the 2014 Herron VCD program. 

Tonight is the night. The night we show everyone what it means to be designers through our eyes. To show the public and professionals here in Indianapolis how we utilize design and how we solve problems as Visual Communication designers. 

Our team of innovationauts at Herron School of Art and Design has been hard at work preparing to launch into open space. Equipped with the tools and competencies for this expedition, we are ready to explore the infinite opportunities this radical transformation process presents. Whether a veteran in the field, a fellow explorer, or a curious observer, you are invited to the Launch of this pivotal mission; our careers. 

At this point we are beyond excited. Not only for the show, but for our future. Here is the beginning of what we have been working so hard for, and we would love to share it with everyone. Share our excitement, our joy, our butterflies to our launch into the workforce. 

We hope to see you there! : I will post photos of our show soon, I don't want the curiosity to kill you. :)
