Printing and binding by the students

This activity book for design students at the University of North Texas not only helps undergrads explore design sans computer, but also shows the program’s prowess in the field. Quite a sweet companion to classroom education that would expand the horizons of any designer looking to learn.

Project Description

My colleagues and I in the University of North Texas communication design program generated a list of life experiences that we feel design students should have in addition to their in-class studies. We want to regularly push students away from their computer screens and out into the world. This list of experiences was then formatted into a series of four passport books, one for each year of our degree program. Students can work through the list—visiting museums, viewing films, listening to the news, etc.—and collect passport stamps along the way.

Production Lesson(s)

By combining black and white laser printing with a mix of paper stocks, we were able to save on costs and still create a compelling artifact. Students were able to customize their passports by selecting their own paper stocks and binding methods. ”
