Visual Communication Design (VCD) Master of Fine Arts Graduate Student Aimee Crane continues environmental design project from her undergrad.
Through her Fall 2008 Environmental Graphic Design course with VCD Professor David Middleton, Aimee Crane has designed ten pedestrian wayfinding signs to improve Kent State University’s campus. Crane’s design was selected, along with VCD Alumna Kimberly Hall’s color coded map design, to appear strategically throughout the campus.
Crane is a third semester graduate student and plans to become a VCD professor in 3D design. The 3D program at Kent State is growing and students should consider this much needed field, said Crane. She attributes much of her success to her experience with KSU’s two- week, intensive SEGD Workshop. The networking and skills learned during this summer program gives you confidence to become a more knowledgeable graphic designer.
