Known for fostering ambitious and visionary artworks, Socrates has presented more than 1,000 artists on its five waterfront acres, providing them the financial support, materials, equipment, and space necessary to create large-scale works in the public realm. Open 365 days a year from dawn till dusk, the park is a center of cultural programming, as a producer of contemporary exhibitions, a presenter of a multi-disciplinary performance series, and an educator of more than 10,000 children and teens each year – all free. The Park’s existence is based on the belief that reclamation, revitalization and creative expression are essential to the survival, humanity and improvement of our urban environment. www.socratessculpturepark.org

Color Theory: Living in Color
Color is a silent language we all know how to speak. What is Color Theory — the mixtures and implementation of color. What is color — Hue, Value, and Chroma. Why do we use something like a Color Wheel, it’s a tool that helps us talk about the physical phenomena of light, how we perceive it and ultimately utilize it in design. A tool … a tool to help us communicate.
– Thomas Basket

Graphic Design and Silkscreen
Every color used is made by hand and every print is prepared, then pulled, layer by layer in a studio environment. The Parsons AAS Graphic Design & Silkscreen class is to connect high-level design thinking with the formal elements of both page layout and silkscreen printmaking. So that, as a student, in thinking about the medium you are using, you are also understanding more about what makes a strong design and what makes strong design thinking.

AAS Graphic Design Faculty Jeanne Verdoux’s work is currently featured in an exhibition in France titled ‘Une image pour la fraternité’. This event takes place one year after the November 2015 Paris attacks where more than 125 were killed. It is part of a social movement called ‘Fraternité Générale’, created by philosophe Abdennour Bidar in partnership with RATP, the Parisian métro system. The main exhibition is large posters on the platform of métro station ‘Hotel de Ville’ from November 2 to 14, a smaller collection of art works is touring the country at the same time.
Her drawing ‘Tiens’ (a French word of multiple meaning: ‘Take this’, ‘Hold on’ , ’Your people’) was created spontaneously following the Paris terror attacks. The message is simple and humanist, suggesting resistance and togetherness. It was created by monoprint technique at the Parsons printshop.
You can see more of her work here.

Can you teach a studio class without the physical studio space? As online learning becomes more prominent, the diverse student body brought together by learning in nonphysical spaces show us that the answer is yes.

Typography: Spaces Between Form and Meaning
The education of a graphic designer, like the life of a designer, is about learning to see things differently. Challenging ourselves to see differently helps us deliver the unexpected. Typography is an education within an education. It is looking at and manipulating the surface aspect of written language to gauge its effects on meaning. It requires time dedicated to intense observation until the forms and logic enters the designer’s mind.

Perspectives: Arranged and Rearranged
“To design is to discover relationships and to make arrangements and rearrangements among these ingredients” – Paul Rand
How do we perceive the world around us, and how do we then arrange those thoughts, sounds, visions, and experiences in a manner that is comprehensible to others? Much of the work of a graphic designer is organizing existing elements and information in a way that communicates a certain perspective to a desired audience, making a singular viewpoint that is able to be shared.
