A compilation of personal visual statements designed by the students of the Spring 2008 Senior Seminar for Graphic Design in the Department of Communication and Digital Media at Carthage College, Kenosha, Wisconsin. Students created these book spreads as their individual responses to the theme of "leaving a mark." The poetic compositions of text and image offer insight, reflection and advice for aspiring designers, some less seriously than others.
I've taught graphic design at Carthage College since 2000, and at various points I've worked as a graphic designer for the School of the Arts at the University of Wisconsin at Milwaukee, as a motion graphics artist for the Bradley Center sports facility, and as a freelance designer for Milwaukee and Chicago based clients. I live in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
