Please be aware of the following:
You will need the following to turn in your Time Machine Ad Project:
Please remember to put a cover sheet and trim it down to size on your ads.
There will be some organizations and businesses on campus this Friday at the Brown Center 1-4pm. If you’re looking for an internship (some are paid!) or job it could be useful in the Baltimore area. Here’s the website: http://micacareerfair.wordpress.com/
and specific companies looking for designers:
On the company profiles it is indicated if they are have full-time, part-time or intern positions. A few of the companies seem like they could offer some good experience…
We will meet in two sections, 4pm and 7pm. Please bring the following and note your group times below.
**Size is determined by the magazine you will be designing for. e.g. REAL SIMPLE is wider than businessweek so measure your magazine to determine your final page size.
To print out an ad that is larger than the letter-size 8.5 x 11, you can print a tiled version from the black and white laser printer and then trim and tape it together. Reference the post on “tiling” below.
Group one: 4pm
Group two: 7pm
To Tile from Adobe InDesign 5.5
I recommend printing with AUTO, and then hit print. Once it is done printing, trim and tape according to the marks on the margins of the page.
The Daily Beast is running a contest to promote the newest season of Mad Men with a gallery of retro ads. I thought it might be nice for you guys to see them given our current project http://www.thedailybeast.com/sponsored/vote-for-your-favorite-retro-ad.html

Your homework due as a PDF presentation on Mar 22nd:
For 10pts extra credit (that’s a whole letter grade!)
1. Visit the GD MFA First Year Show (II) in the gallery opposite the McDonalds on North Ave before it closes on March 11th!
2. Write a one page response to a one or a series of GD MFA projects you found particularly interesting. Alternatively, you may write a reaction to the show in its entirety.
3. This is not busy work, I truly want you to go, visit and reflect on the work. Your one page response needs to be thoughtfully processed and composed.
Did any of the projects bring up questions in your mind? What where those questions? Did you discover new processes or techniques? Did a visual stick in your mind…why?
This gallery is across from the McDonald’s on North Ave and sits next to the Baltimore Print Studios. The show ends on the 11th, so hurry!!
