A Christmas gift from VCV
On behalf of VCV, I would like to thank all of the members who have supported this great organisation throughout 2013. We hope you have been inspired by the Annual Conference and other professional learning events, student seminars, current resources and monthly newsletters. This Anatomy of Type poster will be sent to all current members in the December newsletter, to download as A4 for students and A3 or A2 for the design classroom wall.
Wishing everyone a safe and happy Christmas, and don't forget to relax while on holidays, pick up a pencil and draw, and get ready for another exciting year of design.
Remember to enter the Typography as Signage competition to be in the running to win Typography Sketchbooks (reviewed on the VCV website). Details will be published in the December newsletter for current members.
Teaching Resource Year9/10 Design
Inspired by the recent Flinders Street re-design Competition, VCV have prepared a resource to assist with the teaching of Visual Communication Design at Year 9/10 level. Changing Your Community - 3 Design Fields offers 18 weeks of Design that can be delivered as a Semester course or broken down into smaller units of work to cover a term or 4-5 weeks which can be slotted into an existing curriculum.
Melbourne Now - Art, Design and the NGV
Attached is a flyer regarding the design related PD activities that will be part of NGV’s Melbourne Now exhibition. There are lots of exhibits that will be great for our VCD students with exhibits covering communication, environmental and industrial design fields.
3 DESIGN FIELDS: industry speakers
VCV is pleased to be able to provide you with a video, available as a download or as a DVD, of the quality Professional Practice seminar that was held at RMIT April 18th 2013. The video includes 3 different speakers, an Environmental, Information and Product Designer who speak to the Unit 3 Outcome 2 Design Industry Practice Key Knowledge and Skills.
This is intended to give your students both a choice in who they respond to and variety to expand their understanding of Professional Practice in preparation for the final examination.
