Evolving Typography
Moderator: Mihyun Kim

Panelists:
Henrique Nardi / Tipocracia: a Two-Decade Brazilian Type Education Project
“Tipocracia: typographic state” is an educational project created in 2003 by Henrique Nardi to promote typographic culture in Brazil through courses, lectures, events, and the donation of books on design. Since then, over 150 workshops were taught in seventeen Brazilian states and abroad.

Dori Griffin / Type Specimens: radical inclusion in disciplinary narratives
Type Specimens (Griffin, Bloomsbury, 2022) frames a global narrative of typographic praxis, seeking to expand notions of what design is, who produces it, and how its success might be evaluated. Unpacking the complex process that I engaged in writing/designing the book offers concrete insight into how design discourses can evolve. As a designer, historian, and educator, I find it critical to evolve in response to equity, positionality, plurality, and the pursuit of redefined disciplinary narratives. Prioritizing process over outcome, this talk explores how radically inclusive design histories might come into being.

Mia Cinelli / Letterforms of the Past and Future: Speculative and Discursive Typography
How might recontextualizing historical letterforms or imagining new characters inform contemporary ideas and actions? Mia Cinelli’s Speculative Characters for Visual Inflection and Pandemic Parade Banners engage with speculative and discursive design, using references from the past to process current events and imagine possible futures.

Josephine Cutrara / Blank-Xious Space
"Blank-xious Space," is an interactive visual and sound installation that serves as experience to represent and hone in on the invasiveness of anxiety and its power in an isolated mindset and/or environment. Built around its' visitors interactive individual experience, it aims to engage and mediate their own mindset and agency of anxious. But, ultimately is an invitation to interact to any feeling, peace of mind, reaction.

Evolving Creative Coding
Moderator: Taekyeom Lee

Panelists:
Alex Braidwood / MASS - Mechanism for Actualizing Speculative Soundscapes
This live performance uses the platform of the DJ to explore ideas of naturesound in a new context. Using various synthesis and composition techniques along with custom-built audio visualization algorithms, the overall arch of the performance is modeled after the activity of a pristine dawn chorus.

Yeohyun Ahn / Exploring the truth with the Bible
The Bible is a collection of sacred texts or scriptures. The Bible + CODE Series is a collection of the visual journey to explore the philosophical and religious meanings of life by the presenter through the scriptures using creative coding and typography.

MiHyun Kim, Katherine Pena, Tyler Rico, Chenyao Zhu, and Jennifer Seward / Generative Design: Code as Creative Medium
The MFA in Communication Design at Texas State University has introduced a programming education through Generative Design in Spring 2022. The course introduces the basics of generative art and design and utilizes code as a creative medium to expand the current curriculum to be a critical, imaginative, and expressive reconsideration of technology and its possibilities.

Evolving Human Centered Design
Moderator: Moon Jung Jang

Panelists:
Ben Evjen  / Comfort Toys
The challenges of epilepsy ripple through families, reverberating through daily life. This presentation will cover investigative solutions for children with an epileptic parent or caregiver. Each toy offers comfort within the varied contexts wherein a caregiver’s seizure could occur, providing practical resources for children and enhancing peace of mind.

Ting Zhou / Co-design CareRN for Newly Graduated Nurses to Deal with Burnout
The slogan of this app is “take a moment to take care of yourself”. It is a “safety-house” for newly graduated nurses. In this “safety-house”, users are able to utilize fragmented time between work to seek support, do mental exercise, connect with others, and talk to themselves. The designing process of this app was under the principle of human-centered design and design thinking. To ensure that the app was designed based on the need of target users, app designers co-designed the app with experienced nurses, nursing professors, and newly graduated nurses. Multiple rounds of testing were done by bringing prototypes to target users. Based on testing results, refinements were made by designers.

Tamara McLean / "Home" Augmented Reality Mural Project
Intentionally abstract the vertical lines of the painted mural represent trees and corresponding shadows. “Home” is subtly implied through the neighborhood silhouettes of houses on the horizon. Together these elements symbolize the many tree filled neighborhoods throughout Green Bay. The Adobe Aero augmented reality scene represents woodland critters that move in the foreground. The cast of characters include animated an origami deer, fox, owl, squirrel and hummingbird. An ambient sound loop added to the experience.

Moon Jung Jang / Multiplicity: De-centering Visual Forms
This presentation focuses on a set of artworks exploring multiplicity as a visual concept to de-center visual forms. It investigates the relationships between the following words: left, right, top, bottom, margin, and center and their positions in space. When the words are arranged, animated, and aligned in various orientations, multiple socio-cultural and metaphorical narratives/meanings are created.

Chris Hamamoto / The aesthetics of surveillance
This talk will reflect on the aesthetics and ethics of surveillance within digital and networked systems

Zishuo Wang / The Importance of Bad Designs
An exploration of anti corporate logo designs. What would the modern design scene look like if designers expressed themselves without being influenced by modern corporate identities?

Lisa Maione / Title
Text

Jillian Nalezny / The Nation of Fulfillment
The Nation of Fulfillment is a piece of design fiction that is based off of Amazon and the technology that will be available in the future. It is a guide book showing the technological advancements used in a fictional dystopian nation where consumerism controls humanity.

Caroline Schlegel / Speculative Communication & Obfuscation
This project imagines a world where the need for written text's clarity is overshadowed by the desire for privacy, potentially at a total loss of understanding. I drew inspiration from the movie Arrival's non-linear alien language, spell-check tone tracking AI, blank paper protests in Hong Kong, and AI that generates abstract art.

Moderator: Heather Snyder Quinn

Panelists:
Roy R. Behrens / Solving Problems in Design
How I Learned More from Teaching than I Learned from Being Taught: A brief sampling of various graphic design problems used in studio courses, and the solutions produced by undergraduate students.

Taekyeom Lee / 3D Printing for Graphic Design
Designers can use a variety of printing techniques to produce visual materials and to solve visual communication problems. My research explores unconventional materials and alternative solutions to create tangible typography, graphics, and even designed objects using digital fabrication.

Anastasiia Raina / Towards Biocentric Design
By drawing upon scientific inquiry and collaborations with scientists to generate new methodologies and forms in design, I investigate how living organisms, systems, processes, and related technologies can inspire, inform, and become modes of aesthetic discourse in this more-than-human epoch.

Hailey McDermott /Considering Multi-Sensory Design Solutions
For graphic designers it’s becoming increasingly important to consider other senses apart from vision in their work; multi-sensory design can solve problems and enhance life for everyone. Through her project, Hailey created a 3D printed prototype that aimed to integrate sensory play experiences to enhance speech therapy interactions for children.
