Pixels & Print is a Design Workshop for the students in the Graphic Design program at Syracuse University’s S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications. It is a fully intensive workshop for the students who will work with Industry Professionals who come to help our students as Art Directors, leading the teams. The mission for this workshop is to have the design students see the power of design by designing for a deserving organization or business. This year the workshop is Thursday February 7th–9th 2019
This year we have paired up with an amazing client with a great mission, HUGs from Cara whose mission is to Help Understanding Grief, which is what HUG stands for. They are all about helping children and families in their community and across New York State to understand and grieve in a safe, understanding environment. The organization is named after Cara Zentner, whose life was cut short in 2011 due to a tragic accident in her home. They look to use this personal story to help others who are affected with grief cope with their loss. You can learn a little bit more about the organization on their site: http://hugsfromcara.org
Over the course of the 48-hour workshop, approximately 50 students will design a logo and brand system, a very mobile-friendly website, promotional and social motion graphics, as well as a event branding and poster campaigns. To do this, we divide students into teams, each with different design tasks to work on, and we pair them a design coach or two to help art direct and guide the team to complete its job.
This is the fifth year for the Pixels & Print workshop, which started as a passion project by Assistant Professor, Renée Stevens, who teaches Graphic Design in the Visual Communications Department at the Newhouse School.
