Please join us this Wednesday, April 14th, from 5:00-8:00 PM for the opening of the Design Issues exhibition in the Visual Studies Department Gallery, B45, in the Center for the Arts.

The exhibition will feature work by undergraduate seniors in the Graphic Design program. Based on recent theories around simplicity in design and its affect on consumer behavior, the class focused on how simple steps can lead to wider social change. Projects include illustrated prototypes for sustainable products and services and public campaigns and grass roots initiatives advocating for more sustainable, healthier lifestyles and environments realized through community gardens, organic food networks, creative reuse and more.
