As part of the Graphic Prepress course, 1st year students of the Graphic and Media Technology programme under the mentorship of prof. dr. Raša Urbas participated in a project supported by the Slovenian Research Agency under the bilateral agreement on scientific research cooperation between the Republic of Slovenia and the United States of America in the academic year 2022/23 (bilateral project BI-US/22-24-157).
As part of the project, the students created »Typography Map Infographics«. Each group of students was given a template – a typographic representation of the name of one of the states of the United States of America – and their task was to use this as the central information of the infographic. They had to design the infographic containing the name of the state in a visually appealing and interesting way, taking into account the typographic style. The infographic that was to contain the name of the state was to represent the selected characteristics of the state.
Designed infographics are a testament to the creativity, potential of the design and graphic prepress in the first steps of the study. During their work, the students learned about the main characteristics of each country, their cultural, economic and natural features. While designing and creating infographics, they learned the key elements of the importance of an integrated corporate identity, the reproduction of text and visuals and the importance of the correct selection and linking of the selected graphic elements.
