Graphic Design in DLM-TIC

Although at one time it was specialized physical work, design software has revolutionized typography.  This medium has become an integral part of the art director and graphic designer’s tools in achieving visual design goals.  Typography can help define the identity and individuality of the message.  It can brand the work and give it its uniqueness.  Typography ultimately allows the designer to convey meaning by reinforcing the text with a built-in visual message.  Take a look at some examples of cool typography from Pinterest.

DLM-TIC plans to have a graphic design studio as part of the center.  Let us know what types of graphic design software and equipment you would like to use in our center and in the meantime, enjoy this short film about typography.

A Trip to Full Sail University

Last week, staff went on a field trip to the Full Sail University campus in Winter Park in order to spark some innovative ideas for DLM-TIC. They met with one of Full Sail’s Industry Outreach Representatives and toured many of the film and recording studios, as well as the Hollywood-style film backlot that is utilized for both student and professional projects. They saw the Full Sail University Sports Lab powered by ESPN, and the on-campus studio that is home to the nationally syndicated morning show, The Daily Buzz. The tour included several student spaces and classroom areas where they viewed impressive student work in film, audio, 3D modeling and graphic design. Take a look at some of the highlights of their visit and keep watching our blog for further news about the DLM-TIC.
