UNDO: graphic design students expose how analyzing errors enhances design

Posted on Friday April 8, 2016

SUDBURY – Mistakes happen. Identifying them is such an important part of the design process that this was chosen as the theme for Cambrian College’s Graphic Design graduating student exhibit, called UNDO.

For their final show, Graphic Design students were tasked with analyzing past work to spot errors in judgment. “People make bad decisions professionally, and graphic design isn’t any different,” said program coordinator Ron Beltrame.  “UNDO is an exhibition that challenges graphic design students to reflect on past work and to admit that no design is perfect. It also helps them to see how mistakes form a key part of the design process, and that identifying them contributes to better design concepts, better finished products, and more masterful designers.”

The work, including students’ analysis of their errors, will be the focus of the graduating students’ exhibit, UNDO. An opening reception is planned for Thursday, April 14, at Cambrian’s downtown Open Studio from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Visitors may also view UNDO at the Open Studio from 12 to 3 p.m., or by appointment, Friday through Sunday (April 15 to 17). Full details and a video preview may be viewed online at www.ccgraphicdesign.ca/undo.

Time: 6 p.m. – 9 p.m.
Friday – Sunday, 12 p.m. - 3 p.m., or by appointment
