This is a pretty cool website I wish I knew about my first year in the program.

Check it out.


Collaborative Zine Project!

8 Feb

We had so much fun and success with our first zine project that we decided to do it again, this time just a little differently. It’s going to be a collaborative zine! Everyone designs one spread (with our theme), we’ll put the book together (including a fancy letterpress cover) and supply everyone with a copy! It’s for AIGA members only, so make sure you renew your membeship if you need to. Now is the perfect opportunity. From now until February 20th it’s only $50 to join or renew membership!

Zine spread details:

Theme: The End of the World
Size: two 8 x 8 inch pages (one 8 x 16 inch spread)
Medium: Open

We will print the zines in full color and full bleed, so have fun with this!
Please email us (  if you are planning on participating. You must send your file to by March 19th!

We hope everyone participates!

Designers.MX is an awesome website for music playlists made by designers. It’s always fun and inspiring to hear what other people listen to while they work. There are also some beautiful album covers to look at.

You guys don’t want to miss out on our next holiday event! It’s on December 12th @ 7 p.m. Just design a holiday card and bring it with you that night for a competition. Prizes will be given for the best ones. Also wear a holiday sweater if you fancy. We’ll have food and drinks as usual. Don’t miss out on a fun way to end this semester! Hope to see you all there!
