Stained Glass Windows Of Trinity Cathedral, Cleveland, Ohio, Produced By Wilbur H. Burnham Studios, Michael Tevesz

Michael J. Tevesz

Trinity Episcopal Cathedral has over forty large stained glass windows that range in age from the 15 to the 20th Century. The medieval windows were produced in England and Germany, while the more contemporary windows were produced by such prominent studios as those directed by Willet, Connick, Tiffany, Heaton, Young, and Burnham. The more contemporary windows are of considerable artistic and historical interest, but there is very little information available about them. This monograph specifically focuses on the windows of Trinity Cathedral produced by the Wilbur H. Burnham Studios. The Burnham Studios windows are the most accessible windows within the ...

Towards A Unified Theory Of Play: A Case Study Of Minecraft, James Hooper, Penny De Byl

Penny de Byl

Researchers in the fields of game design, childhood development, learning, and movement studies discuss the concept of play. However, the term has been frequently redefined resulting in a divergent understanding of the concept. This paper presents a Unified Theory of Play that aims to provide a holistic examination of the domain that will enhance understanding of play by delivering a tripartite framework for critical analysis of a variety of computer games. Minecraft is presented herein as a case study analysis using the proposed framework.

The Art And Artifice Of Hand-Lettering, Lauren Gallow, Ellen Caldwell Apr 2014

The Art And Artifice Of Hand-Lettering, Lauren Gallow, Ellen Caldwell

Lauren L. Gallow

Is there a reason we’re so drawn to hand-lettering right now? Why are we craving handmade cards, signs, and posters in this moment? Why do we gravitate towards making hand-lettered flyers and signs and cards as opposed to designing on the computer? Maybe it’s just because we don’t know how to use Adobe InDesign and Illustrator… but we think there’s more to it than that.


Less Realism : More Meaning : Evaluating Imagery For The Graphic Designer, Stuart Medley Mar 2014

Less Realism : More Meaning : Evaluating Imagery For The Graphic Designer, Stuart Medley

Stuart Medley

Typography' as a defining term has become interchangcable with 'graphic design'. and while font choice and application is seen as of paramount importance. image choice, virtually half , . of the communication design equation, is neglected in the theory and in pratice is left to the instinct of the designer. In this thesis I try to find approaches for graphic designers to understand image to the degree that they understand type. These approaches are tested through assignments for graphic design students and the results recorded and analysed. I seek to address the paradox that we are able to communicate more accurately through ...


The Picture In Design: What Graphic Designers, Art Directors And Illustrators Should Know About Communicating With Pictures, Stuart Medley Mar 2014

The Picture In Design: What Graphic Designers, Art Directors And Illustrators Should Know About Communicating With Pictures, Stuart Medley

Stuart Medley

Pictures are as vital to graphic design as type, yet graphic design theories barely give them a look. The seemingly unconscious nature of the act of seeing has meant that vision and pictures have been taken for granted. Finally, here is a way for graphic designers to understand pictures. This book explains the paradox that we are able to communicate more accurately through less accurately rendered images. There is a difference in the way pictures communicate depending on their realism quotient. The removal of realistic detail by the designer or illustrator allows for other aspects to be emphasized in or ...


Presidio Trails:Overlapping And Unfolding Narratives, Lynn Sondag Dec 2013

Presidio Trails:Overlapping And Unfolding Narratives, Lynn Sondag

Lynn Sondag

My paintings are inspired by a constant immersion in a familiar place. This allows me to notice subtleties created by sunlight fog and wind, and see an otherwise familiar environment with a new perspective. For the past fifteen years I’ve been exploring the ephemeral natural elements in the coastal landscape of San Francisco.

This most recent body of work, started in 2011, is inspired by the vibrant natural, historical, and cultural landscape of the Presidio National Park. The Presidio is a place that connects people both across time periods, as well as with in a single moment of time ...


My Dead Mom, Lauren Gallow Dec 2013

My Dead Mom, Lauren Gallow

Lauren L. Gallow

After my mom died I inherited all of our family photo albums and scrapbooks. Looking through these treasure books, I was drawn to three very special scrapbooks that my mom made in the late 1970s when she was a senior in high school and then during her first few years of college. I remember flipping through these books for the first time and having the uncanny feeling that I was looking at myself. I look so much like my mom in these photographs, it blew my mind.

Mythical Figures & Mucawas: Ceramics From The Ecuadorian Amazon, Joe Molinaro, Richard Burkett

Joe Molinaro

Pottery in the Ecuadorian Amazon Basin is rapidly disappearing as plastic and aluminum containers replace the traditional pottery. Mythical Figures focuses on three of the best indigenous potters from the Kichwa culture: women who both make traditional pottery vessels such as the intricately decorated chicha drinking bowl called a mucawa, and who also create fascinating figurative work that comes from Kichwa mythology and their imaginations. The book contains photographic portfolios of mucawas and also figurative work made from clay, along with a wealth of images of pottery making and other cultural and environmental images. The authors have worked together for ...

Your Library Website Stinks And It's Your Fault, Matthew Reidsma Oct 2012

Your Library Website Stinks And It's Your Fault, Matthew Reidsma

Matthew Reidsma

Library websites stink. They are difficult to use and create tension between us and our patrons. This is a talk about library websites, but it's really a talk about people. It's a talk about our library patrons, a talk about us, what's wrong with the way we're doing things, how and who it hurts, and what we can do about it.


Ralph Fasanella: Worker, Activist, Artist, Nick Salvatore Jun 2012

Ralph Fasanella: Worker, Activist, Artist, Nick Salvatore

Nick Salvatore

[Excerpt] In his art, as in his life, Ralph Fasanella reminds us all of the complexity of our society and of the need for each generation to dedicate itself anew to the commitment of justice for all. That his work, accomplished without the benefit of formal training, is as arresting and as pleasing as it is, is but a reflection of Ralph Fasanella's basic message.

Halal Hotdogs [Design Ignites Change Idea Award], Brian Wiley, Mohamud Mumin, Ahmed Hirsi Dec 2011

Halal Hotdogs [Design Ignites Change Idea Award], Brian Wiley, Mohamud Mumin, Ahmed Hirsi

Brian M. Wiley

Halal Hotdogs is a collaborative effort between Brian Wiley, Mohamud Mumin, and Ahmed Hirsi. It was devised as a way to celebrate Somali culture and change its perception here in the Twin Cities by using food as a catalyst for community engagement and cultural acceptance. The project also serves as an opportunity to provide job skills and entrepreneurial development to young Somalis. Ultimately, we feel that food carts could create a source of sustainable income for newly-arrived Somali immigrants that may otherwise struggle to find meaningful work.
