For Design: Type & Image's final project, students were asked to reach out to some community, either on or off campus, to establish a relationship and to help advertise their services to the Connecticut College community. Students were also asked to create an alphabet with found objects and use their alphabet in their print design. I reached out to the Garde Arts Center in New London, of which I was a volunteer at the time. I interviewed various members of the Garde about their favorite memory of the Garde Theater and then created a poster campaign with their quotes. As for the alphabet, I created letterforms out of bulb lights,  took photographs, and cleaned the images up in Photoshop. I used bulb lights in order to resemble backstage makeup mirror lights.
