Class hours: 9:40am – 2:05pm
- Money. Give it.
- Naked man on bike!
- Now THIS is what movie theaters should serve.
- Overall the Worker Trait component for Cawd was pretty poor yesterday afternoon. Some elements which dragged down grades:
- A very lackadaisical amount of work product presented for Dailies. You are going to have to really engage with the project if you are expecting anything better than a C. It IS completely ok for you to be a D student. Franky, it makes it easier for the students that try harder to get into college, but please think about your brand. What you present at dailies reflects you.
- Messy stations EOD.
- Sketchbooks left out.
- Headphones not wrapped up.
- Do better.
- Now onto some better news, what do Laterreur, Dhondup, Bernier, and CJ have in common?

11:00 SkillsUSA Pin Design Competition Introduction
- 3D Visualization and Animation
- Interactive Application and Video Game Design
- Web Design and Development
- Pin Design (Graphic Design)
Depending on your grade in Cawd you are eligible to take part in these design competitions, which allows you to compete against the best student designers in the state, and potentially the nation. There is even a next next level of World Skills Competitions. Nothing to worry about…yet.
Today we are going to start the Pre-production process for the Pin Design competition. Pin Design is the graphic design competition where we have to build a “pin” – a metal design which is produced and then traded at the state and national design competitions.
There are pins for 50 states + all the territories. There are high school pins, college pins, all sorts of pins.
We are going to start the Pin Design process today. We are going to follow a typical creative design process for this project:
- Rules of the competition / Client Requirements
- Concept Art
- Final Drafts
- Digital Drafts
- Final Presentation of your designs
I may submit 8 pins from Cawd. The 8 pins I select will receive a very healthy amount of extra credit as these pins are what Cawd will be showing the outside world. 8 students may be selected, or 6 students where 2 have 2 pins.
I will not be spreading the wealth amongst the class to make you feel good. I will be rewarding the students that work the hardest and have the best designs. This most accuratly reflects the real design world, and that is what Cawd is about.
Here are some examples through the years:
Part 1: Rules of the competition / Client Requirements
Part 2: Rules of the competition / Client Requirements
Next, we are going to brainstorm ideas. I want you to fill out the sheet that I give and turn in by lunch which will help create ideas which fit in with the requirements of the competition/client.
You need to select 8 design elements to fit the 4 categories of the client. You can not double up and expect a grade higher than a C. For example if you wish the “A”, don’t write Maple Syrup for Vermont Industry, Vermont Culture, and Vermont Environment. Pick one.
In addition, on the 2nd sheet (blank) I want you to fill it with at least 10 sketches that have:
- 1 Object that reflects Vermont Industry / Culture / Technology / Environment
- The word “Vermont”
While these aren’t fully fleshed out in terms of the client requirements, it will be a good starting point to see if your imagery/form is easily recognizable at a small size and if the text can be incorporated smartly.
Graded, turn in by lunch. We should all have enough time to work on this, but if you don’t, so long as I get it by Wednesday, November 30th at 3pm you will get full credit.
If not turning it in now, put in your cubby, or take with you. Anything left at your seat is recycled.
