Traditional approach - develop further initiated font from Font Design 1. - Build out in to a 'family' of multi-weights and styles - Within each font, complete the necessary characters that are expected from a font that is suitable for retail/professional use. This includes: diacritics, numeral sets and symbols Outcome - Documentation of process / Final presentation - Font developed to the extent that it can be proposed to a foundry - Font still needing more time - but far enough along for BETA 2. Conceptual approach - Create contextual / responsive font(s) - Utilize OTF feature scripting or other tech platforms - Narrow the task required of the font to (a) specific effect(s) - Build out necessary character sets to support desired effect - Employ feature scripting for seamless user experience Outcome - Documentation of process / Final presentation - Font that is responsive to the content it is set in - Font could be considered for retail development

Plan B: Spirit of Bauhaus S1

3

When the Bauhaus was originally conceived, one of its primary intents was to address and capture the 'eternal human spirit' in art, design, and architecture. It sought and cultivated wonder, the utopian, the radical. It promoted 'look- ing' as an intellectual pursuit and considered every action in life as a medium for creativity. The Bauhaus was revolution- ary in its re-linking of the arts, crafts, life, and manufacturing. Driven by socialist ideals, it created a curriculum of new forms that helped craft the 'modern.' It did so by forging an art, design, and industry education bound by community, aesthetic risk, and the sharing of ideas and skills. Yet, over time, much of that initial spirit has been forgotten or reduced to cold and functional readings of what the Bauhaus was about. Plan B resists such narrow interpretations and sets out to revive the forgotten or overridden aspects of the Bauhaus-in addition to delineating its thinking, impact, and influence-by re-imagining them in a contemporary setting. Working with the idea of the contemporary as 'an experience of profound dissonance' with its time, project leaders will develop and implement a research-based and experimental Berlin program 'in the spirit of' the Bauhaus, where ideas, shapes, disciplines, and the virtual co-exist. The resulting work will then be showcased within the frame of an HMCT exhibition in L.A., along with satellite exhibits and events. Plan B conspires to recapture the daring 'spirit' of the Bauhaus so as to rediscover its heritage and imagine its future significance.

On day one students conjure, discuss, and immediately write their way into a book of collective thematic interest. Every week they write their way deeper into a specific project and fine tune it through the course of the first month. Then the drawing begins. The class functions as a multi-disciplinary studio environment to draw, photograph, illustrate, and graphically impregnate a ripe topic (like hair, animals, the encyclopedia). It's about moving quickly. No running in place. It's about speed and follow-through, dedication to an idea. Writing in class, writing at home,rewriting, editing, analyzing. Developing new collaborative skills and trust, finding a stronger textual and image voice. The class offers connections between design and literature by shaping new associations of word and image through the intersection of writing and its translation into print. We spend the term emphasizing iterative designing and image-making around original content. Weeks 9-11 are spent in an in-class editorial workshop environment where students operate both independently and by sharing workloads and responsibilities to produce a literary arts publication. Students are given job titles such as editor, art director and image editor to stress the importance of leadership within a collaboration. Weeks 12-14 are spent in production and working with a printer. Students write, design, art a 90-100 page publication / refining typographic skills to express hierarchies between titling, running texts, marginal texts / hone image-making and image editing skills / production skills / working with a budget and deadline.

TLB: The Berlin Way

3

This class provides a first-hand immersion into the vibrant creative industries of Berlin to explore the "Berlin Way" of living & making in one of the world's most dynamic creative environments. Through the lens of social science, students will gain insights about the interrelationship of Berlin's development as a city with the evolution of its creative industries. Berlin's magnetism to the creative class has dramatically increased over the past twenty years. Ironically, the city's economic stagnation in the early 2000s, which came after a very brief post-reunification gold rush, turned out to be fertile ground on which the German capital's current status as creative global hub could flourish. The combination of cheap inner-city property and strong endorsement of creative freedom helped revive Berlin, which now draws artists and cultural entrepreneurs from around the world. Tech and web entrepreneurs, who are following in increasing numbers artists, designers, writers, and musicians from around the world, have established themselves in Berlin over the past few years and helped create a dynamic economic base for the creative industries and for the city as a whole. Berlin's urban density mixes living and workspaces, facilitated by a shared, highly integrated transport system. Informal encounters between greatly diverse populations are a daily reality, making the city a place of inclusion and constant creative inspiration. Built on rich sediments of cultural heritage, Berlin's pavement is literally vibrating with creative energy from the underground. Cultural trends born in various subcultures quickly find their way into the mainstream, allowing for rapid innovation in design, technology, and cultural expression. In addition to guest lectures and discussions with Berlin-based experts (architectural historians, urban developers, city marketeers, etc.) students will meet and interview protagonists of Berlin's creative scene, visit their studios, and will also learn to search and discover the next up-and-coming talents of Berlin. Collectively, all participants of this course will contribute through writing, audio-visual edits and visual interpretations to a webbased knowledge base that maps the ever-evolving creative industries of Berlin. The Berlin Way project could evolve into an ongoing signature project of the ArtCenter Berlin studio, a resource to current and future Testlab Berlin participants - and potentially to the creative industries of Berlin.

Vaccinate Pasadena!

3

Data shows that Pasadena's vaccination efforts have been more successful than surrounding cities, but unevenly distributed. While overall 99.7% of Pasadena residents having received at least one dose of the vaccine, Black and Latinx populations, as well as children aged 5-11 and adults aged 18-44, have lower rates of vaccination. In addition, the vaccine will soon be approved for the final group of the youngest children, aged 0-4, with the decision power resting with their parents and guardians. What can be done to support vaccination rates for all of these populations? How can people be directed to trustworthy and reliable sources about health information? What can be done to help people navigate the healthcare system and get access to the vaccines? In this studio, students will work with the Pasadena Public Health Department and on-the-ground subject matter experts such as promotoras, lay health advocates who connect Spanish-speaking communities with the healthcare system, and community clinics to develop a community-based campaign to address these questions, using traditional and non-traditional media and methods.
