Symposium vs Conference. what we could come up with was that a symposium is more relaxed and laid-back. It's also more hands-on and personal, whereas a conference is a more formal type of meeting.
This is my beginning concept map for our Typographic Symposium. This is the start of a fourteen week group project with the entire junior class to create a typographic symposium for high school students and kcai freshman. This symposium is hopefully going to give high school students and freshman here at kcai exposure to what design is, is not, and what it can be.
i feel that i definitely over-worked this concept map design wise. i kept pushing and pushing it. if i had more time i would have gone back and stripped it down some. but for the amount of time we had, i'm quite pleased with what i was able to come up with.
