Hello & welcome back to the 2nd semester of Graphic Design Foundation…

In these 2 units (BSBDES202A: Evaluate nature of design in a specific industry context & CUFRES404A: Conduct research) you will be sourcing information on various areas of graphic design and examining current trends in the graphic design industry.

Last week in class we watched a SemiPermanent presentation with Scott Dadich, creative director of Wired magazine.  He discusses the design intentions of the magazine and their concept/idea development process.  For those of you who missed it… and those of you who may wish to review it,  you may download it here: http://www.abc.net.au/tv/bigideas/stories/2009/05/08/2564761.htm

He mentioned the SPD – Society of Publication Designers, here is a link to that site: http://www.spd.org/ where you will find loads of interesting information. His blog: http://www.spd.org/the-process/ chronicles behind the scenes at Wired in serious detail.
