This upcoming semester (fall 2008) we need lecturers for three classes that are part of the Interface Design curriculum within the New Media Arts program at KCC:
ART 127 Graphic Symbolism
Introduces the use of graphic symbols in design by examining contemporary and historical symbols and logos. Logo design and simplified abstract symbols are created using a combination of shape and letter forms.
ART 249 Interface Design II
Builds upon interface design skills learned in Interface Design I. Students plan, design and build web sites and audience specific interfaces for the internet on a more comprehensive level. Technical emphasis will be placed on learning web standard compliant web design using HTML and CSS
ART 266 Typography
Explores letter forms and word compositions in the context of designing with type. Projects and lectures include traditional terms and classifications through contemporary digital typesetting technology.
If anyone is interested, or knows of someone who may be interested, please have them contact me, Chris Gargiulo (gargiulo [at] hawaii.edu) with a resume/CV, samples of personal work, and if possible samples of student work.
