life = design? 8

a squirrel is like design? The definition of life can also define design. Due to design’s ubiquity, there are quite a few reproductions in the print processes. Design must also adapt and grow. In terms of design aesthetic, there must be homeostasis (or balance) and organization. The stimuli is us, the people that come in direct contact with the design piece. If there is no response to the design, it is not alive.

Grow a school in 89 years Objective Make a company or organization practice sustainability in numerous camps. Solution Academy of Ar t University is a pioneering school for graphic design sustainability. Yet, the school itself is not, despite being in one of the most eco-friendly cities in the United States. Therefore, for this project, I studied biomimicry and decided to create a proposal for a graphic design building that is grown, not built. I posed myself as a member of Terrform One, an organization from New York that specializes in grown buildings. The building would be a living tree structure to inspire future generations of design students.

The future design building This is a sketch of what the building may turn out to be. Since growing a building is a natural process, it is hard to predict just exactly how it will be in the end. With methods such as pleaching, it is possible to manipulate the tree to grow in cur ves to form the bases of the building structure. It will be solar powered and collect water from the roof. It will have natural sunlight. Lastly, it will connect the design students with nature, with hopes of inspiring them to design more sustainably.

Fight indoor air pollution with Plants Objective Create a book that uses experimental type. Topic of our own choosing. Solution My apar tment was covered in plants, and I liked the idea of cleaner indoor air. Thus, I researched what plants made healthier, breathable air. I also discovered what other plants were helpful for and sought them out. This book is about growing or buying plants that can replace toxic, expensive, or not so environmentally household items. I created my own type through planting and growth. Technical • Handbound book • Dimensions: 6” x 6” • 33 pages • White square pot • Organic Soil • Seed-filled paper in book

Life forms under the Microscope Objective Research a topic the entire semester related to science and create a magazine. Solution Biology, Zoology, Herpetology, any science related to animals is my favorite. When I had to pick a science related topic for this project, I chose Marine Biology. I work in an education depar tment at an aquarium and often teach children about plankton. I thought a magazine devoted to microscopic life was a worthwhile endeavor. I made this issue about plankton. Technical • Glued binding • Plastic Microscope Slide Box • 3 Pre-made microscope slides • Magazine • 57 pages • Dimensions: 7.5” x 5.5”

The Reproductive Cycle I often think of design methods in terms of biology. Creating a magazine is much like the reproductive cycle of a sea jelly. A nugget of a thought is much like a zygote stage, just waiting to grow. As time goes on, the idea grows up to be a planula larvae. Finally, it will stick onto something and begin to branch out into other possibilities in the Syphistoma phase. It matures into a company of ideas and possibilities that can even create more of fspring for 20 years in the Strobila stage. Designs are created in the Ephyra phase and the large floating plankton we know as sea jellies is the magazine completely designed and printed. From this mature specimen, a nugget zygote will begin the process again.

About Micro Magazine 

letter The mission of this magazine is to celebrate micro organisms and the amazing scientific ability to see them. There is a whole new world in the nano life that is yet to be explored and admired. This first issue is about plankton and the importance of their existence. Other issues yet to come will consist of bacteria, plant cells, and viruses. The first issue will come with a microscope box and each issue will consist of 3 slides per issue with actual slides of the specific topic involved. This issue has 3 slides of plankton for the reader to enjoy with their home microscopes for a better view and understanding of the subject matter. Let the microscopic wonder take over. Best wishes, Lex Piccione Editor in Chief

Urban Bats in San Francisco Objective Pick a subject matter to study for about a month. Record data and design it in any medium of your choosing. Solution I contacted a local scientist by the name of Jennifer Krauel about bats that live in San Francisco, and her thesis gave me clues on how and where to conduct my own research. I chose a promising location and documented the bat behaviors I witnessed. Af ter spending weeks bat watching, I wanted others to experience it as well. As a result, I created a bat watching kit with a book, audio, video, shir t, bug spray, and a bag to put it all in.

Urban Bat Guide This is a guide to bat watching in the city of San Francisco. It includes basic bat information, profiles for all the species found in this area, my own personal bat data, and a section to fill in your own data. This book aims to get people involved with local bats in a safe setting and debunk the my ths surrounding them even today.

What you need to research Bats are tricky creatures to view for yourself. They only come out in specific areas and feed at twilight. In order to see plenty of them in flight, you will have to deal with being completely surrounded by their food source: bugs! Since we do not want to be a bug’s dinner, it is impor tant to protect ourselves with bug sprays. However, it is equally impor tant that it is not harmful to the bats that will eat them. Here is an organic spray that is safe for us and bats!

Are you willing to pay fines for your trash? Objective Pick a topic and create a final book of your research and solutions. Solution During this time period, there were rumors that San Francisco city will make composting and recycling mandator y by law. Being ecofriendly myself, I was very happy to hear about this possibility. I decided to do more research on the topic and get other people’s opinions. My views ended up shifting from pro-law to anti-law. My final book shows alternative solutions to the waste problem.

Gathering the Main Ideas Af ter a semester’s wor th of researching, experimenting, conducting discussions, and other various research methods, I finally came up with three main camp ideas. They are: Education, Innovation, and Communication. I then put pieces of information I found most crucial in each can. It could be a quote from a discussion group, an inspiring photograph, or some impor tant information on each topic.

Rebranding zoo New England Objective Choose a company that is or about to go out of business. Rebrand. Solution I was devastated to find out that Zoo New England was considering shutting their doors due to lack of funding. It comprises of two zoos: Stone Zoo and Franklin Park Zoo, all in the Boston area. There were rumors animals would be euthanisized if they were not transpor ted to new homes. I wanted to find a way to ensure the safety of the animals and the zoos. Technical • Wire Bound Book • Dimensions: 8” x 7.5” • 96 pages • Cloth cover • Sample uniform • Live animal presentation

Uniforms Inspired by my own place of employment, I created a uniform system to distinguish husbandr y workers to their specific animal specialities. They reflect the color of the logo piece that identifies the animal type. Reptiles are bright green, mammals are orange, amphibians blue, and so on.

A film festival in honor of Guillermo Del toro Objective Choose a movie director to create a fictional film festival in his or her honor. Solution Guillermo Del Toro is an amazing movie director who has a fascination with monsters. More importantly, he is passionate about marine life and would have become a marine biologist if he was not making movies. This film festival is about the celebration of monsters. In his films, they are actually not evil despite their looks. They’re misunderstood creatures much like sharks, bats, and snakes.

Logo for the Film Festival The title of the film festival is Dissection of Darkness: What makes a monster in the films of Guillermo Del Toro. I used dissection tools as inspiration for the logo. The scissors became the tool of choice and morphed into a piece with dark characteristics of ambiguity. The film festival is about literal and metaphorical dissections of Del Toro’s movies and his characters.

A Closet Barry Manilow Fan In the movie Hellboy II, Abe Sapien listens to (and sings with Hellboy) the song: “Can’t Smile Without You” by Barry Manilow. Upon fur ther research, I found out that Guillermo Del Toro is a closet Manilow Fan. Shown here is the soundtrack as a USB in a test tube. One half has instrumental music from the movies and the other half is all Barr y Manilow songs. “Can’t Smile Without” lyrics are included so you can sing along with Abe Sapien and Hellboy!

Thesis: Save Endangered animals of massachusetts (example species: bats) Objective Choose a design thesis topic. Create well thought out, brilliant works of design. Solution I am passionate about plants and animals, as this por tfolio already suggests. My thesis goal was to design and document the facts surrounding endangered animals in order to educate people and encourage par ticipation in their preser vation. The year 2010 was the year of the Little Brown Bat for my thesis organization since the bats are in critical condition from a fungus called White-Nose Syndrome.

These are maps with general distribution on the endangered animals per type of animal. If two species share the same area but one is endangered and the other one is threatened, the one with the worst status is shown on the map. Echinoderms and Cnidarians are not endangered and therefore do not have maps represented here. In fact, these types of animals are overpopulating.

White-Nose Syndrome (also known as WNS) is a disease that af fects several species of hibernating bats in the eastern United States and Canada. Since it was first identified in the winter of 2006, the disease has spread across many states, and scientists estimate that the syndrome is responsible for the death of over one million bats. The pathogen associated with the disease is a fungus known as Geomyces destructans, and infects bats by invading epidermal tissue and hair follicles.

WHITE-NOSE SYNDROME

WING DAMAGE With the appearance of White-Nose Syndrome in the United States, researchers have begun to notice an exceptionally high amount of damage to bat wings. Working with the local land owners and state environmental agencies, researchers at Boston University have developed a scale to describe the types of wing damage observed on bats in the summer. This scale has been widely accepted by bat researchers, and the information collected is used to monitor the spread of WNS, the recovery from wing injuries, and the general health of bats.

Dissection of type When learning the basic elements of typography, I made it in terms that I could understand. My teacher often used the word “dissection” as a metaphor in naming the various par ts of a letter form. I took this meaning literally. The shapes of the “O’s” expose various par ts of the frog guts.

Earthquake safety I am not a native to California so natural disasters like ear thquakes were something I had to familiarize myself with. In my first semester, I wanted to research the best methods of protection during such events. I recalled Ber t the Tur tle from 1950â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nuclear testing adver tisements. He taught people to duck and cover. Similar to this idea, I too used a shelled animal, only this time a tor toise. The shell represents a helmet. The new message is â&#x20AC;&#x153;Cover and Hold On.â&#x20AC;?

The definition of alive This is a series of experimental type defining what it means to be alive. I used the physical objects to illustrate the word â&#x20AC;&#x153;Aliveâ&#x20AC;? whether it be plant pieces, bone, blood, or par ts of an inver tebrate. The definition of alive is vast and encompassing. At the end, I realized that life was boiled down to molecules and cells.
