Deborah Beardslee and several of her junior Environmental Graphic Design students attended the Teen Empowerment Luncheon on Thursday, May 7, 2015 at the Rochester Downtown Convention Center.
Each design student contributed two different sets of 5 panels to display at this public event (with over 600 people in attendance!).
The students shared their final design files with Teen Empowerment so that the designs can be reproduced much larger and be used in other venues in the future.
The students also designed and produced a set of 50 different takeaway cards for youth organizers at Teen Empowerment to use in the future at neighborhood meetings and workshops.
The photos below are from the students’ initial research meeting with the Teen Empowerment staff and youth organizers at their office. Other teams of students from this course, meanwhile, worked with RIT’s e-NABLE Lab and Kirkhaven Nursing Home downtown (in the Park Avenue neighborhood).
