Introducing Yourself through Drawing - Assignment One

With getting to know each other, we ask that you draw a header for your individual student blog that will double as the name tag for your desk space. Your student blog will be used as a way to show your work and document your progress for both your Studio and Design Visualization so we encourage you to make your blog a reflection of your personal design journey.

In class today you will participate in a series of exercises to establish your blog. You will learn the basics for designing the layout and publishing posts. One important element of your blog is the header, which will be the first thing that appears when a visitor is viewing your blog.

For this assignment, you will use a graphite pencil and a provided sheet of 8.5” x 2.5” paper on which you will create a custom header for your blog.

On the header, you are to provide the following elements:

  • - Your full name
  • - “Studio 101 and Design Visualization 110”
  • - “Fall 2010”
  • - A drawing of something that you observe in the studio space that you find interesting or inspiring

These elements are a starting point, feel free to be creative with this header. Before heading right to the paper create a series of thumbnail sketches to determine how you will layout the header. Practice the text along with the drawing in your shared sketchbook.

You are to place this header in the title position of your student blog before the beginning of class on August, 26th and display the physical drawing at your studio desk.
