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.
