Art Schedule

In the design brief for this piece, I was given a list of information in a poorly formatted structure and charged with the challenge of making it easier to read and understand. The information consisted of what courses were being offered for a particular semester and when and where those courses were being held. I decided to create a piece that hid most of the information until the viewer actually wanted it. I created a structure similar to what holds paint samples in a hardware store. Each slot contained a slip that designated how many sections and where and when that course was being held. The only portion of the slip that was visible to the viewer initially was the course name and number. This was an important design decision because the students know what courses they need to take so they could simply walk up and select the courses they needed and they were able to use that information later to select what courses would best fit their schedule. I also made a decision to include each professors’ rating from in stars.
