    Ringling Student and Grads Featured in Book

    April 13, 2009 -  GIC Faculty member Polly Johnson's former students have been published in the recently released book 100S Visual Formats Folds by Matt Woolman.

    Featured in the publication are works by 2008 graduates Phil and Amanda Clark, Dane Overton, and Felicia Koloc, along with current senior Jihad Lahham. Their three-dimensional "Flat Cities" project (part of the Junior year curriculum) is spotlighted in the new book, which is an idea starter of all kinds of formats, folds and bindings for graphic designers. "Flat Cities," by faculty member Polly Johnson, is an assignment to create an imagined city, place, or space constructed out of paper and flattened as a pattern to be assembled.

    The project explores how city related themes and concepts can be communicated by applying a graphic system to three dimensional paper forms. It's a fascinating process with incredible creativity and diversity. Check out Polly Johnson’s blog to learn more about the "Flat Cities" project.
