The Graphics Project

The Graphics Project aims to inspire and support students with their portfolios due at graduation. The program offers series of lectures, seminars, tutorials and workshops focused on building a successful argument around a body of work produced at GSAPP. It challenges students to understand how those ideas are manifested in a physical object: the book. Topics include constructing a narrative, editing, typography, color management, photography, advanced InDesign skills, color management and resources to get a successful portfolio printed and bound.
