Faculty Present New Projects for CAS Scholarship Series

The final Spring 2012 session of the College of Arts and Sciences Scholarship Series (CASSS) was held on March 15. Among the presentations was "Graphic Design Undercover" by Rozina Vavetsi, associate professor of graphic design. Her presentation explored the vast, dimly-lit, and sometimes ignored manifestations of graphic design, with particular emphasis on information design. Vavetsi's approach encourages students to look beyond pure aesthetics and the avant-garde to focus on working within real-world constraints, among real-world information density and complexity, and to conduct case studies across a broad swath of subject matter.
