A new exhibition in the lobby of the Martin-Mullen Art Gallery, "DESIGNING FOR THE USER: a crucial step in every design," features work by students Brandon Belaski and Danielle Thomas. It opened Nov. 30 and runs until Dec. 19, with a reception Dec. 1 from 5 to 7 p.m.
"DESIGNING FOR THE USER" features a combination of graphic design for books, advertising and web use. QR codes will be presented to viewers to scan with their smartphones to visit web-based designs and explore the creations online. A large TV video display will also display the web-based work.
"Every day we use our phones," the student statement reads. "The importance of good design in relation to everyday life is extremely important. Now more than ever before, good design is being seen in just about every material. In whatever project we designers take on, we always have to remember we are designing for the user."
The Martin-Mullen Art Gallery and Project Space Gallery are free and open to the public from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday-Friday when the college is in session and during special events.
