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 and donate their time 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. We have students vote on a client that they would like to produce work for, from a number of proposals we receive in the fall. This year we are gathering from Thursday February 9th–11th.
This year, we have partnered up with a great organization, the Southside Chapter of Syracuse’s Tomorrow’s Neighborhoods Today. It is an organization who is trying to re-connect and cultivate change in the southside of the city of Syracuse. It is an area with high unemployment, concentrated poverty, and schools that are underperforming, but also with a great community who is coming together motivated to make a change. We are excited to see how design can help a community so close to the SU campus, something that will be very rewarding for everyone involved.
Over the course of the weekend, the students under the direction of their Design Coaches/Art Directors will be designing a logo, a website, motion graphics, promotional print products, a newsletter, social media resources, and if all goes well, designing some Virtual Reality experiences as well.
This is the third year for the Pixels & Print workshop, which started as a passion project by Assistant Professor, Renée Stevens, who teaches Graphic Design in the Multimedia Photography, and Design Department at the Newhouse School.
