fresh· CO U R AG E ORIGIN & MEANING

Frischmuth is of Germanic origins. It is derived from two words: “frish” or fresh + “mut” or courage. As the last in my family line, I proudly carry my surname on through my design philosophy. Design takes courage. It takes strength to create every day with passion, and to continue on to the next with the same determination.

In Design Outside the Box, instructor Roland Young challenged each of us to tap into the essence of a brand and communicate the main idea — the

SOLUTION

Once a utilitarian mode of transportation, the Vespa is transformed from an _T ypography

SABO N , G OTHAM

everyday object into a “bella donna,” or beautiful woman through a series of artistic photographs. The figure of the Vespa is displayed elegantly and simply through this collection of close-up, intimate, and sensual portrait images. Rather than viewing a scooter as simply an object, I looked at the Vespa as a strong, sexual, and commanding woman. Each photograph is given a woman's name, reinforcing the idea that these are not images of a vehicle, but instead portraits of beautiful women. The Vespa ceases to be an object, and its shape is transformed into desirable curves of a body.

The goal of this course was to conceptualize and design a complete system of communication materials around a festival in a way that characterizes a selected director. After researching and selecting a particular filmmaker, a common thread was to be pulled out to form the theme of the festival.

something goes wrong in the everyday life of a character, or a significant decision is a turning point in the character's “normal” life. These good, yet somehow flawed, characters find themselves involved in situations and events that often prove to be their ruin in the end. Most of the Coens’ movies are also set in the past and I wanted to create an experience that takes on this nostalgic character. I chose Austin, Texas as the venue for the festival because it is reminiscent of locations in several of their movies, which is also reinforced through a colorful, warm palette. Final deliverables include an identity system, posters, advertisements, DVD packaging, catalogue, schedule, tickets, festival souvenirs, and website.

While working on comparing my recreations to the original specimens of the masters, I developed a keen understanding as well as an appreciation for the minutest of details when working with type. Each paragraph was carefully finessed until the kerning, leading, rags and justification were absolutely perfect replicas of the original exercises. By first recreating these antique type specimens and then having the freedom to design my own experiments, I began to understand how the different weights of a typeface creates texture and visual impact. I gained an appreciation for the technical precision as well as the simple beauty of typography. The finished typographic exercises and experiments are printed on thick cotton paper and carefully housed in an exquisite handcrafted specimen box with several custom designed labels.

With any topic open for exploration, I chose to delve into the idea of clothing in our society. I posed the questions, what is the ultimate uniform and can we really tell who someone is by their clothes? I used these ideas as a as a jumping off point to experiment with typography, layout, color, and process.

our appearances in particular ways, especially in certain situations, to express a feeling, to somehow fit in, or meet certain expectations. In continuing with the theme of clothing, I literally sewed threads and words into the pages to hold them together, creating a rich texture and tactile quality. I explored several main reasons for wearing clothing such as ubiquity and fitting in with the crowd, concealment and camouflage, authority and emoting power, protection and surviving the elements, attraction and sexuality, subculture and fitting in by being different, and finally uniformity by being naked. Each spread is a composed visual and textural representation of these ideas.

SOLUTION

I found an opportunity to overhaul Hang Ten’s, identity by breathing new life into it while bringing it back to its roots. Hang Ten originally grew out of a group of 1960s California surfers with a demand for versatile, comfortable and

_T ypography

AVA N T G A R D E G O T H I C , LUBALIN GR APH, B O D O N I P O S T E R I TA L I C

stylish surf wear. The original Hang Ten customers embraced surfing not just as a sport, but also as a culture and lifestyle. By tapping into memories and the culture associated with Hang Ten’s history, it has been possible for me to reestablish the original customer while bringing in a new core customer. The love of nature, beautiful places and a laid back culture is reinforced and reflected in this brand refresh. Hang Ten has now been transformed from “the original surf brand” into “the new California dream.” The final project is presented as a brand standards book that conveys the new look and feel of Hang Ten, as well as brand extensions such as surf rentals and lessons, music festivals, and vacation destinations to truly experience the new brand.

semester I translated all of my research and ideas into meaningful messages. A comprehensive, hand made book showcasing this research is the final result.

I started this project by questioning who is ultimately responsible for our food and health: farmers, food companies, the government, consumers, or family? When it comes to health and food, the general advice has been the same over the years: eat a wide a variety of foods, don’t overcompensate by eating too much of one thing, and stop eating when full. Somewhere along the way this simple message has been complicated by the food industry, media and advertising, by societal influences, and by politics and subsidies. Partisan Pantry raises concerns with how our current food chain operates and explores issues such as food culture, how we decide what to eat, modern agriculture, food politics, and persuasive marketing. The book concludes with five opportunities where design and communication can improve the future of food as it begins to trend toward slow, organically and locally grown options.

CHALLENGE

The San Francisco creative agency, Words Pictures Ideas, asked students to develop a concept for an extraordinary semi-annual publication under the premise of constraint. I had to work within the constraint of a set page size of 6 by 36 inches. Other than this stipulation, I was free to explore design, orientation, materials, structure, direction, content, and shipping logistics.

SOLUTION

Constraints are like requirements such as having limited resources, they can _ Date

be decisions that restrict the way something is designed or developed, or they can be self-imposed restraints about how we feel, act, or think. After much discussion and exploration about what constraints are, what they could be, and what it means to break them, I developed feature articles and designed compelling layouts with this always in mind. I communicated the underlaying theme of constraint through a series of color blocking and lines that both hold in and break through a grid structure. Every article also keeps with the underlying theme and includes original content about a bipolar diagnosis, what quitting means, living with Alzheimer's disease, losing control, and a photo series about the government control of marijuana.

CHALLENGE

The culmination of the graduate program, my Master’s Thesis, showcases my design skills though a complex 18-month project. After passing an initial proposal review, I worked with design professionals to complete my thesis, and to develop and launch sevenponds.com. An overview of the project is shown in the following pages. Please see the full volume of work in SevenPonds, Embracing the End-of-Life, An MFA Thesis for the complete story.

My thesis journey started with questioning the funeral industry. Frustrated with what I saw as missed opportunities and those in grief being taken advantage of, I wondered why don't we have a more open dialogue about the inevitability we each face, which is death? SevenPonds is my answer to the often impersonal, institutionalized, and resource heavy funeral industry. It provides online information, resources, services, planning guides, and a place to celebrate memories and to bring the community together to heal. On the path to completing the research, development, and design of my thesis, I collaborated with many people. This project goes beyond my thesis, and it is my hope that it will continue to grown and have a lasting, meaningful impact for people on their end-of-life journey.

Grief and Support Preparing for Death

Green Burial How common is green burial? Many Americans had their first look at a green burial in 2005 when the HBO drama series Six Feet Under concluded with the death of funeral home owner Nate Fisher. Nate’s unembalmed body was buried in a shroud on a plot of land in a nature preserve. While green burial, also interchangeably called natural burial, has been popular in the United Kingdom for several years, the practice is relatively “new” in North America, unless, of course, you BEFORE DEATH Donating Organs consider the practice of embalming did not begin GO » until the American Civil War; before then, all Americans technically had a “green” burial free of the many hazardous chemicals used to embalm a body. Even today, some populations have never adopted embalming. For example, Orthodox Jews have been practicing burial without embalming for thousands of years. For more information about what the embalming process involves, see “Embalming: What You Should Know” by the Funeral Consumers Alliance. In recent years, only a limited number of Americans have chosen green or natural burial. However, more people are making choice for green burial. In an AARP online poll, 45 percent of participants indicated they would choose green burial over funeral industry burial and cremation. The number of people choosing green burial should increase as more green burial preserves, also called “green cemeteries,” become available. Although it’s possible to bury an unembalmed body in a casket at a traditional cemetery, to be environmentally sound and have a truly green burial, burial should take place at site specifically designated for green burial. On a more limited basis, some people have been able to negotiate county and state laws to arrange for green burial on privately owned land. To find an operating green burial site or a green burial site under development, you can visit www.naturalburial.coop or www.greenburialcouncil. org. Are all green burial sites the same?

Thinking Positively How my husband’s death at a young age helped me see things in a new light Posted on 10/27/2011 by Kelly Larsen This is the story of Loraine Lister, as told by Kelly Larsen I bought a flower shop in Tracy the April after Dick died. I sold it when I was 75 after 22 years. It was 1983 when he died, so 20 or 30 years ago. And you know, you kind of forget in a way. But you never get over it. I was 54, so I was pretty young. He was 57. He had lymphoma, cancer of the lymph glands. What was happening was because he had this cancer, the pain would kind of travel. He was hurting here, then there. The doctors couldn’t figure out what was wrong with him. They eventually, at the very end, did surgery on him. The surgeon even said, “I can’t do surgery. I don’t know what I’m doing surgery on.” The cancer spread so that it went into his bones. When they operated they had to take out his spleen. It was awful. It was awful for him, because he never missed work. He had had arthritis, but that was it; and he thought that’s what this was. We even went to San Francisco to a specialist, and no one could figure it out.

The Progression of Burial and Cremation Alternatives: In Europe and Florida, Novel After-Death Disposition Options are Slowly Reaching the Public

He was taking this medication that was outlawed shortly after his death, and I blame it a lot on that. I took him to the hospital, and within two months he was gone. That was a hard time, because he was in such pain. I really didn’t sleep very much because he couldn’t lie down anymore; he had to sit up in his chair. He was on so much medication, and I had to keep track of how many pills he had to take, and how many times a day he was supposed to take them. For two months I would sit up on the couch while he was on the recliner in the living room. I was kind of numb for those two months. It was tough. And of course it’s tough when you lose someone like that. He was my best friend. And I know all wives say that, but he really was. We were married for 37 years. I was always a housewife. I didn’t have anything to do, so I really didn’t know what to do after he died. I ended up going to
