From January 1 through December 31, 2014, Leslie Tane designed one 4×6” postcard every day. The result is “Curatorial 365.”

After graduate school, Leslie decided to continue her study of curation, exhibit design, and art history with this mediation of making. After reading a relevant essay each day, she selected a phrase from it to design. The intention was two-fold: the reading became a daily practice of learning and the designing sharpened her creative skills. Each postcard is different, and Leslie took this client-less, budget-less opportunity to experiment, fail, and persevere. It turned out that a 365 days is a very, very long time.

25 conceptual graphic designers visualize TaDa! in varied sizes, dimensionality, styles, and media ranging from print and screen to fabric and thread. The Masters of Graphic Design program at Vermont College of Fine Arts was recently named as one of the top 11 programs in the country. VCFA designers are less concerned with what graphic design should be than what it could be. The students, faculty, and alumni of the program use graphic design processes to produce what may not appear to be graphic design product.
