COMD1162 – Week4

On September 26, 2017, in Week4, by Genevieve HItchings


DUE: Stage 1 of project 1:

  • Identify 6 tourists locations in New York City (Museum, Dining, Park, Nightlife (music, dancing, theatre), Shopping, Landmark)
  • Come up with 10 sketches of possible symbols for each location. Remember you are trying to figure out a ‘style’ that will work consistently for all six symbols. Symbols should be simple enough to communicate meaning quickly.
  • Find at least 3 designers or examples of work that inspire you, and whose ‘style’ you would like to try and evoke in yours.

Lecture Topic

  • Review last week’s lesson
  • Download new lesson here: lesson-week4


  • Continue to work on your sketches from last week. For those of you whose sketches I have seen – move forward with what we’ve discussed. For those whose sketches I have not seen you have a little more time to refine. Everyone must bring their sketches to class next week again.
  • Take a photo of each page of your sketches (with cell phone is fine) and bring into class as a digital file on either a thumb drive, a sever or via your email. We will explore possibilities for rendering sketches digitally.
