Local Identity, Melissa A. Phizacklea 2012 Western Michigan University

Regrettably, most campaigns quickly fade away with little or no impact on shifting local culture.

With this idea in mind I am proposing to explore and develop a permanent local identity that will endorse a number of local brands. This identity highlights the individual local ...

Effects Of Augmented Reality Presentations On Consumer's Visual Perception Of Floor Plans, April L. Lutheran

Department of Computer Graphics Technology Degree Theses

Home architects and designers use many types of presentation drawings to convey design ideas. Augmented reality is a relatively new technology that can be used to aid in design and marketing for residential builders.

This difficulty has been associated with lower spatial ability in people who are not accustomed to reviewing plans. Augmented reality can be used to make visualization ...

This publication, which brings to light little-seen masterpieces from the Sheldon Museum of Art’s collection, explores the three major print techniques ...

Moving Beyond Templates: Publication Design For Beginners, Deborah Schander 2012 Georgia State University

Moving Beyond Templates: Publication Design For Beginners, Deborah Schander

Deborah Schander

Libraries produce an extensive array of in-house publications each year, from "open late for finals" signs to patron guides and newsletters. But without training or robust IT/Communications teams to whom they can turn, librarians often feel they have to resort to commercially-created templates when designing these publications. The speaker will first introduce participants to basic principles and tools of print design. The speaker and audience will analyze sample documents (e.g. signs and brochures) for poor and good use of design choices, such as text justification, graphics placement, font selection and more.
