Last year Jamie Turpin, a graduate student at Savannah College of Art & Design, asked to use my article “Why Graphic Design Theory” in a Typography Studio project. In the resulting piece, Jamie intermixed her interior architecture background and graphic knowledge to create a wood and chipboard accordion that has 9 panels and is 45” long x 7” wide. Currently her project is a semifinalist in the Adobe Design competition
Congrats Jamie! The design is lovely.
