RSVP Needed| KVCC Student Art Show Promotional Materials

(NOTE: This is the same info that was e-mailed to each of you today)

There is a late breaking new project for the KVCC Student Art Show. This is a fine arts show coordinated by Arleigh Smyrnios. Arleigh has a class that meets at Texas Twp the same time we do so client contact face-to-face will be minimal, and most communication done via voice mail, e-mail and interoffice mail. Please note this is HOT as the deadlines are approaching FAST. The most urgent pieces are the Poster and Invitation. All pieces should have a cohesive identity. Below are the notes I received from Arleigh with specs, and information to be used on each piece. The look should be compelling and relate to Fine Art. We do not have specific images from the show so you will need to create images/symbols that relate to the disciplines (ceramics, photography, traditional and digital arts.) Note: the emphasis on Fine Art (Personal Expression) as opposed to Commercial Arts.

Because of the deadlines, current workload and spring break we will need to move quickly, and strategically on this project. This is a GREAT project due to the quick turn around, open ended design criteria (lots of room to show your creativity), and I would like to have lots of participation. PLEASE RSVP TO ME YOUR INTENTIONS TO WORK ON THIS PROJECT. If you are not able to please tell me specifically what projects you are actively working on and what you are doing on each.

List of Tasks and Datelines

The poster design idea/theme/style should be adapted to the awards and invitations.  That two or more people who can work in a tight time framework coordinate the labels, awards, and catalog. (We will get the roster information on a Monday evening or Tuesday morning and will have to have all ready by Wednesday afternoon (labels & awards) and Wed. evening (catalog).
