It looks like a real magazine...
Taking the lead from Cristina about seven feet to my right, I'm going to show some student-related work today. If you've met with me recently you've probably heard my Elvira Marin promo. I love her website, simply.
Elvira came to the Design Communication Arts program with a background in marketing, so she already had some applicable skills, like all of you. Yes, all of you, no matter your course of study or experience. Anyway, check out her website and be amazed.
What I love are many things, including that she puts her work in context. We see it on a bus (through the wonders of Photoshop), we see it on a sidewalk, and we see it on a billboard. It gives the work legitimacy while also showing that the designer has thought through scale and implementation.
Elvira is continuing her education at The Chicago Portfolio School, where it's much colder than it is here. You can learn more about her in the Fall 2008 n-vis-n newsletter, which is just to your right.
