I am in the graphics group for 'the Way of the Day' exhibit, and am responsible for the signage and communication graphics within the exhibit. After discussing vision with other group members, we have decided that along with one main graphic poster, there will be 6 individual posters that would be suspended throughout the space, a floor graphic, and hand-held fliers as well. Below are thumbnail sketches I have contributed that illustrate ideations for these graphics, including our vision of a floor plan as well.

Last Thursday, our Materials and Methods class took a trip to visit a local lighting company, RL Vanstory Lighting Company. One thing I that found interesting from our field trip that was how the company itself used lighting in their own office. Observing their choices in how the space was lit, considering their career focus was in lighting, was very interesting. I also enjoyed the atmosphere they created within the space simply through their spirit as a company. Their passion was pleasingly apparent, and inviting for one to turn to for honest advice concerning future lighting concerns. I feel as though I learned more about the business aspect of the company as opposed to the actual presentations because I felt the importance of how they created an atmosphere through personality in their presentation and in lighting the space itself, was a bonus lesson in itself, and will definitely come to use when considering personal career options in the future.
For this assignment, we were asked to study the various luminaires within three spaces of our choosing. Below are images, facts, and descriptions of luminaires and their effects in the ground floor of the Gatewood building, Banana Republic, and Tate Street Coffee.
