Project Lower 9th

This blog is an archive of design process created by multi-disciplinary students from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena. We are exploring how design can make a difference in the course of reuniting Lower 9th Ward residents. Please join our journey in helping the people of New Orleans.

We got an advisor for our Project Identity!!!!

Now Angela being part of our team, she was able to bring another project advisor from graphic design side of Art Center!!! His name is Richard Keyes and teaches many graphic design classes. He has worked on projects that are very socially driven before and very good in color and type design....(sorry...I don't know all the lingo in graphic design..) We had a meeting with him this afternoon as an introduction to the project and also to get some feedbacks on logo and identity design which Angela is working on. He is very critical... (which is very good:) Since he is new to this project, as we explained him where we are, he brought us very simple but real questions to us. Some of the questions that he asked was: "How and when do we know when our project succeed?", "What kind of message are we trying to communicate to our audiences", "Who are our audiences", "Why are we focusing on Lower 9th ward?"...etc. He also pointed us out that it's easy to fall in the pitfall of feeling satisfied from the process of working on humanitarian project but neglecting creating a real meaningful design solution.
Ideating with Chris by trying to answer his questions for the rest of afternoon really pushed us to move tiny bit forward with our project (or I think it did....). I'm looking forward to his next input!!!
Also we saw Roman briefly today at school!!! We met him a week before we went to New Orleans but since we shared such an intense and emotional visit to the city together... and now we don't get to see each other so often, we miss it was great to see his smile and catch up little bit:)
