Designer presentation series

GDES-270 fall 2020 (David Ramos, American University Design) · office hours

Create a series of type/image compositions that tell us about a notable designer or design firm. Describe the designer’s work and it has affected the broader field of design. Share examples of the designer’s projects.


New for online format Create a series of 9–12 “slides” that combine headlines, image, and detail text, with headlines and captions. Format these for presentation on the social media platform of your choice. Decide on a structure for presenting these—you might make an Instagram story, or a thread of Twitter posts with images. You might need to break these up into multiple parts, for some environments.

Do ask me for suggestions, research guidance, and advice about the presentation itself. I am happy to watch practice runs of your presentation.
