Office of Students with disabilities seeks design intern

The Office for Students with Disabilities is looking for students who are interested and capable of producing tactile graphs with Illustrator.

Not sure what Tactile Graphics are?  Tactile graphics are a means of conveying non-textual information to people who are blind or visually impaired, and may include tactile representations of pictures, maps, graphs, diagrams, and other images.  A person with a visual impairment can feel these raised lines and surfaces in order to obtain the same information that people who are sighted get through looking at pictures or other visual images.

The Office of Students with Disabilities has no funds to pay someone so they would prefer to either hire Federal Work Study students or take a student who is okay with an unpaid internship.

If you are interested, Please contact Julie Balassa for details:

Julie K. Balassa
Assistant Director, Office for Students with Disabilities

Valencia Gets out the vote poster competition

This summer some of our courses included a poster project to help Valencia get out the Vote. For graphic students, the objective is to build awareness of how design can be a powerful tool to promote a cause, while learning the skills of graphic design. Second, for the Valencia community, the objective is to promote individuals to get to the polls and make their voices heard in the upcoming elections.

We’ve narrowed the finalists from the submissions created. Now it’s YOUR turn to help us decide which poster will be printed and used around campus to help Valencia encourage everyone on campus to get to the polls and vote. Here’s how voting will work:

  1. Visit our facebook page and “Like” the post you feel would be most appropriate. Of course you’re allowed to vote for more than one poster. Here’s a link to the posters of the finalists.
  2. The poster with the most likes at midnight on August 1st, 2012 will be chosen to be screen printed and posted on campus this fall.

We encourage you to share the poster competition with others…encourage your friends, family, classmates, teachers, colleagues and fellow designers to vote! While you’re at it…encourage they “like” our Valencia graphics fb page too! We have a lot of awesome creative inspiration and promising things to share in the near future. :o)

We also appreciate and value critique – if you have suggestions or ideas we encourage you to leave constructive critique for our students as a comment with their poster in facebook. Your input is certainly valued and will be taken into consideration prior to the final poster is printed. Good luck to all our finalists!
