Welcome to the Fall '06 Semester

This web site will be updated very regularly to contain information related to your classes and to graphic design, as well as to contain some things that I find along the way that are just interesting. This will also be the only place I will post any extra credit for any classes - so it will pay for you to visit regularly. The area where this post appears is the blog portion of the site, and will contain new posts of design related news, web sites, jobs, tutorials, articles, and more. The area of links at the top of the page contain ways that you can get in touch with me, as well as links to my office hours, the Mac lab hours, blackboard and myvwcc. All handouts, grades and assignments will be posted on the blackboard site for your class.

On the right side of the page you will see two columns of a variety of information. In the "Feedback" section you can post a comment to this blog, leave me an online voicemail from your computer, or give me a rating on ratemyprofessor.com. Below that are a weekly band to check out, and a spot for a design related or otherwise entertaining youtube clip. Pay attention to the "Recent Links" list, as it changes to include the most recent design related links that I've added to my bookmarks. Clicking "Explore more links" will take you to all of the design related bookmarks I have tagged in Ma.gnolia, where you can find tons of great design information such as tutorials, articles, designers websites and a pile of other stuff. The reading list at the bottom of that column lists a number of design related books that are most certainly worth taking the time to read.

In the far right column there is a search box that will allow you to search all of my posts on the site, and a constantly updated list of the most recently active design blogs from all over the net. Pay special attention to the "Daily podcast" and "Daily video" links, as they will be very regularly updated and contain links to design related videos and podcasts that are great to listen to or watch when you have the time.

I spend a lot of time working on this website to keep the information current, valuable and entertaining. Your comments or feedback would be greatly appreciated. Have a great semester!
