Soo Jung Kwon created her senior thesis about the intrinsic secrecy of language. For one aspect of her project she monitored people conducting private conversations, either via mobile phone or face to face, in public places in NYC. The maps above show the times and locations throughout the day over several months. She also participated in geocaching as research for her thesis. Geocaching is interesting to people because of the secrecy and science involved in the game. Soojung constructed an evidence-based thesis concerning the overlaps between language and secrecy.

Sangho Bang designed this website as part of his course work as a fourth-year student in my Transmedia Design course at Yeungnam University, South Korea. Sangho was my typography student in his junior year. Between junior and senior years, he discovered his style and visual voice and went at creating work like a bandit. In my course, he focused on self-promotion. He’s done fabulously. I’m very proud to have worked with him. click this link to view the website https://www.bangsangho.com/.
Dan Cassaro was in my junior year typography course. I liked his style so hired him for yearbook. He was also in my senior portfolio course. From the outset, Dan’s ideas were quirky, sometimes kitschy, but it turned out that he was onto something big. While I had to push him to play with typography in junior year, by the time he finished the yearbook project he was well on his way stylistically. He had found the pulse of an upcoming trend and has ridden it well. click this link to view Dan’s website http://www.youngjerks.com/.
