This week marked the last folio prep class that I will run for RMIT and I can say that I am very happy to be making this departure. It feels good to be cutting the cord independent of an institution that has the potential to do so much to nurture the skills and passion of the great people who work there, instead of grinding them down into bureaucrats who are only good for filling in forms in ticking off lists.
Over the last ten years the nature of the design industry and learning about design has changed alot, and will continue to do so.
Back to the project, stemming from the original Bauhaus, this Frottage Project is created by collecting rubbings and arranging them into a grid which helps students experience the modular system of the grid a fundamental aspect of Graphic Design. It takes a resourceful student to find a wide variety of textures to culminate in a strong result that is aesthetically pleasing.
