Effective Methods Of Marketing An On-Campus Resource To College Students, Samantha Gary

Trends Within Craft Beer Packaging, Aurelia See

Graphic Communication

While the print industry is facing a changing atmosphere, one thing is as sure as death and taxes— there will always be a market for print within the packaging industry. There is a growing market within the craft beer industry, and with that comes competition for each brewery. Many breweries are finding it difficult to use their beer’s first point of sale, the packaging, to their advantage when attracting consumers to their product. The purpose of this research is to provide the reader with knowledge and insight into package design, with special emphasis on designing for current trends and ...

Infringed: Appropriation Art And Intellectual Property, Benjamin A. Stern

Student Scholar Showcase

This thesis is an exploration of appropriation art specifically referencing policies regarding fair use and focusing on the legal, ethical, and social issues that are associated with appropriating another artist’s work. Though highly controversial, appropriation art has been seen in a wide array of media and has impacted various artistic movements. The accompanying artistic project to this thesis, titled Infringed, uses three historically important copyright infringement court cases to discuss the legality of transforming others work into new and original pieces. Each of the three court cases will be represented in a poster series that explores the concepts of ...


Building A Brand For A New Generation, Joel Schlaudt 2017 Liberty University

Building A Brand For A New Generation, Joel Schlaudt

Senior Honors Theses

In a segment of the market as highly competitive as is the coffee industry, it can be difficult to forge a new brand strong enough to stand on its own and unique enough to stand above the competition. However, by choosing the millennial generation as a target audience and strategically constructing a creative strategy to reach them on an emotional level, a brand concept emerges with the ability to connect with consumers in a new way, transforming a daily necessity into an emotional experience unlike that offered by any other competitor. A Harry Potter-inspired brand built upon a delivery ...

Patterned Infringment, Madison Kalson 2017 Kent State University

Patterned Infringment, Madison Kalson

Undergraduate Research Symposium

All fashion collections are created using inspiration. Often inspiration can come from art or prints updated, reimagined, or changed. But there is a fine line between inspiration and copyright infringement. While copyright laws are not hard to access they are complicated and often a copyright lawyer is necessary. Additionally, there are copyright fees and renewal fees assuming the artist files within two years of their work being published or publicly displayed. Copyright law should be easier for the artists and stricter for the infringer. If the artist does not sue the infringer, which they can only do if their work ...


Cursive Camp, Lesley Teater 2017 Kent State University

Cursive Camp, Lesley Teater

Undergraduate Research Symposium

Cursive handwriting is no longer a required course in school curriculums. Although many people do not see it as a necessary skill, cursive is more than just a form of writing. For a child’s quickly developing mind, cursive handwriting aids in expanding reading and writing comprehension while also improving cognitive thinking, focus, motor skills and creativity. Recognizing the importance of these language and communication skills, I set out to design an interactive learning app through my Interaction Design class with the help of my professor, Gretchen Rinnert.

Cursive Camp is a two-part app, divided into “practice” and “play” sections ...

Interaction As A Lost Art, Megan Steele 2017 The University of Akron

Interaction As A Lost Art, Megan Steele

Honors Research Projects

In today’s day and age, people are consumed by technology. We tend to use phone and email rather than meeting up in person to share the experiences in our lives. It’s easier, more convenient, and quicker, but in-person interaction is a critical key in keeping relationships alive. Body language, tone of voice, and emotional cues are absent or easily taken out of context when using technology to communicate. The use of electronics takes away human presence.

This exhibition focused on encouraging the idea of meeting up with people face-to-face whether it’s a long time friend, or a ...

Led Screen Resolution: A Lego Visualization, Andrew S. Trowbridge

Honors Research Projects

As a graphic designer, understanding the way a computer displays type and image is extremely beneficial. Before going into college, my knowledge of how a line of ones and zeros translates to a full color, high definition screen of pixels was abstract at best. This project serves to explore and demonstrate the meaning and process of LED screen resolution through a more playful and tangible lens of LEGO® bricks.

LEGOS® encourage the creative, child-like side of us. The bricks become a doorway into another side of learning. It pushes us to not be afraid to explore and delve deeper into ...
