Artist Statement:

Seeing Through Graphic Design is a branded curriculum for graphic design. This workbook will be disseminated through the Ohio State 4-H Extension office on a statewide level, adapted for a Summer 2018 publication date. 4-H is an experiential learning organization for youth development in ages 8 to 18. This project explores how graphic design can help a 4-H member discover and develop knowledge about themselves and how they perceive their environment, by decoding the world of visual communication. Additionally, the activities teach concepts of graphic design and the design thinking process, such as intention and unique perspectives that form individuals and influence their work. Each lesson takes a creative approach to helping the 4-H member understand not only fundamentals of design, but also skills that lead to great design, including content awareness, self-identity or expression, visual literacy, and challenging the status quo. Seeing Through Graphic Design is an intermediate level project intended for youth artists who want to know more about the graphic design discipline as applied to daily processes.
