Design Ethos Conference

What is Design Ethos?

While the principal role of visual communication has remained unchanged through modern history, a broader realm of influence must be acknowledged and addressed, and the design community must ask questions that transcend outdated boundaries of culture, influence and motivation. Even as debate surrounding the fundamental issues of form, content and audience has raised the graphic design field to a new level of maturity, visual communicators are confronted with evidence that their work is negatively impacting both socioeconomic balance around the globe and Earth's vital natural systems.
At the center of this debate is the need for a new ethos that can effectively address matters of global equity, true sustainability, and the downsides to consumerism on an increasingly populated planet. The inattention to social, cultural, and environmental repercussions of an outdated mode of business operation cannot continue. Pragmatic notions of global citizenship are necessary.
This symposium brings together design educators and practitioners who are wrestling with these difficult issues in an attempt to help define the next step in graphic design's continuing evolution.

Jeffrey Dean Lighting Workshops this Weekend at Meddin

New York City Photographer and Photo Assistant Jeffrey Dean is coming to Savannah. He will hold two lighting workshops for SCAD Photography students at Meddin Studios this Saturday from 1 to 6 and Sunday from 1 to 6. Meddin is located at 2315 Louisville Road in Savannah. (For more information on Meddin, go to their website All students are invited.

BIO:Hailing from Los Angeles, Jeffrey had the advantage of proximity early in his career, positioning him to take full advantage of the myriad photographic opportunities in celebrity photography and the fashion and beauty industries. He has had the unique opportunity of working with many of the world’s top photographers, including Patrick Demarchelier, David Lachapelle, Annie Liebovitz, Steven Meisel, Sante D’Orazio, and many others. He has worked regularly with Playboy and Penthouse, and was a regular on the sets of large-scale advertising and editorial shoots for publications such as Vogue, Vanity Fair, and Harper’s Bazaar.

As recognition and appreciation for his work grew, Jeffrey began to explore more ways to enhance his abilities. He quickly mastered the art of studio lighting and location lighting, which is evident in his photography. Woven throughout many of his projects, Jeffrey masterfully works with a variety of analog and digital formats, along with a multitude of strobe and continuous lighting systems. His keen sense of lighting technique enables him to celebrate the diversity of his individual subjects to ensure that their optimal beauty is captured. He believes that his expertise in lighting sets his work apart, and transforms a mere photograph into a work of art.

LaGrange Museum Call for Entries

Calling all photographers/videographers:

Through Fresh Eyes

A New Look at the LaGrange Art Museum

A Digital Media Competition

Sponsored by Emory Clark-Holder Clinic

The LaGrange Art Museum invites all creative thinkers to break out your cameras and break out of the box for an interesting challenge. As an innovative and forward thinking museum, we are looking for striking digital media images of the Museum itself! LAM is holding a competition to capture the essence of its identity. “Through Fresh Eyes” is an opportunity for the Museum to be reflected through the eyes of those who see it the most, the community.

The LaGrange Art Museum has undergone significant changes over the last several months and is beginning to take on a new identity. We have a new director, some new teachers, and a new look through fresh eyes at an old building with a lot of new things to say.

We want you to take pictures, digital videos, or create digital media images that capture the identity of the LaGrange Art Museum.

This historic landmark, located at 112 Lafayette Parkway in LaGrange was built in 1892 and served as the Troup County Jail. It has also functioned as a furniture store and offices to the LaGrange Daily News. In 1978 it was donated by the Callaway Foundation to the CVAA (Chattahoochee Valley Art Association) and was turned into the Chattahoochee Valley Art Museum in 1990. And in 2007 the name changed to the LaGrange Art Museum. As you can see this location has had many faces and we want you to capture what you see in the LAM ‘Through Fresh Eyes.’

Images should be submitted in digital format and can be taken with any digital camera, video camera, cell phone, computer, iPod, Polaroid, disposable camera, etc, as long as the entry is in digital format. To enter, upload your digital file to the LaGrange Art Museum’s Facebook Page in the Through Fresh Eyes album or upload your videos to the video tab. All images must be submitted no later than October 1, 2010. Make sure to include your name, age and hometown.

The image can be as straight forward or as abstracted as you can make it. All entries will circulate as the LaGrange Art Museum’s Facebook profile picture for all the world to see! All entries will be displayed as a temporary exhibit on October 16 at the VAAL opening through December 31 at LAM and the CCL. A panel will decide three winners of the ‘Through Fresh Eyes’ competition whose entries will be awarded a home in the LAM Permanent Collection! Additionally, those three images, plus nine more, will be awarded a prestigious placement in the new Emory Clark-Holder Clinic Calendar.

If you’re wondering how to approach the subject matter in an interesting way, come inside the LAM and be inspired by “Elements of Architecture: From Form and Function to Place and Vernacular” that opens August 14. This show will look at several key elements in architecture, including form and function; vision and process; and place and vernacular. Work will be pulled from the LAM Permanent Collection and newly archived material on the LAM building will be presented alongside contextual didactic labels.

Photo Conservation Workshop

Care and Identification of Photographs
Savannah: November 4-7, 2010 (Hosted by the Coastal Heritage Society)


Registration Includes:
  • 4-day workshop
  • 280-page color notebook (printed on HP Indigo Digital Press)
  • 60x LED handheld microscope
OPTIONAL: Basic Photographic Sample Set

This 4-day workshop is an introduction to the history, identification, and preservation of photographic materials. Participants will acquire hands-on identification skills and learn practical photograph preservation techniques. Using handheld 60x microscopes and a large set of photographic and photomechanical samples, they will learn how a variety of processes were created, why they look the way they do, and how they deteriorate. Knowledge about photographic processes is essential to their preservation and leads to a greater appreciation of the aesthetics and history of photographic prints.

Preservation topics include enclosures, handling guidelines, environmental monitoring, the effects of temperature and relative humidity on collections, and the importance of cold storage for certain photographic materials.

Processes examined in detail include but are not limited to the following: daguerreotype, albumen, collodion and gelatin printing-out processes (POP), matte collodion, gelatin silver, photogravure, offset litho, letterpress halftone, collotype, chromogenic color, inkjet, and dye sublimation. Group ID sessions, using a digital microscope and screen projection, will allow participants to practice their identification skills in a guided setting.

The registration fee for this 4-day workshop is $595 and includes a handheld microscope, and a workshop notebook with lecture handouts, Quick ID Sheets for each process, and a selection of readings on photograph preservation. The Basic Photographic Sample Set, consisting of 18 identified photographic and photomechanical processes, is available with registration for $75.

Due to the hands-on nature of this workshop, the number of participants will be limited to 12.


The Academy of Certified Archivists (ACA), a certifying organization of professional archivists, will award 15 Archival Recertification Credits (ARCs) to eligible Certified Archivists (CAs) attending this workshop.
