Our annual get-together produced a multi-contributor design and screen printing event. Several family members had recently taken on raising chickens, so the hen with fig in beak and wearing one shoe became the group design.
After the image was drawn on the screen and the screen processed, dozens of tshirts were printed in all sizes from tiny to huge. Several additional prints were screened onto different colors of 12″ x 17.5″ construction paper.
Several local design professionals, including FigDesign’s David Fiegenschue, met at North Lake College to review and provide input for the school’s growing Computer Graphics program. The group:
- Evaluated the goals and objectives of the Computer Graphics program
- Established workplace competencies for student occupations
- Revised and updated the Computer Graphics program curriculum
- Evaluated the adequacy of existing college facilities, equipment and software
- Advised on the purchase of new hardware and software
- Identified local business and industry leaders who may provide students with external learning experiences
- Sought placement opportunities and employment for students
“Education is obviously a key component in shaping the future of design and visual communications,” said Fiegenschue. “In this fast-paced and fluid environment, the next generation will need to be flexible, smart and up-to-date on tools, platforms and strategies to help clients. Colleges that lead students forward will help shape the language of design.”
A senior marketing class in the College of Business at the University of Texas at Arlington hosted designer and business owner David Fiegenschue of FigDesign.
Dr Narayan Janakiraman invited Fiegenschue to speak in order to allow informal discussions about marketing topics between students and working professionals.
Fiegenschue showed samples of branding projects his firm has completed, discussed the value of design in business and answered questions about his career and outlook on the future of visual branding.
