CalArts 2010

Tee shirt graphic for CalArts’ AIGA group’s annual tee shirt show featuring work by students and alumni. This graphic depicts my view of California Institute of the Arts’ educational system: a traditional Bauhaus-derived basic graphic design education that emphasizes form and meaning (hence the circle, triangle, and square), then infuses that with a personal interpretation (thus the destabilized, wobbly structure of the circle). The postscript outline of the graphic emphasizes the instructional nature, as the CalArts faculty also teach students the nuts & bolts of how to build designs correctly.
