University of Bridgeport | Shintaro Akatsu School of Design (now part of Paier College)
The mission of the Shintaro Akatsu School of Design (SASD) was to offer professional education in the design fields leading to baccalaureate and master’s degrees and successful careers in design. SASD developed students’ abilities to identify, analyze, and solve design problems using culturally sensitive and environmentally sustainable methodologies and technologies.
As an Adjunct Design Professor for Senior Thesis class, I co-created a student publication titled, Document: Magazine. Each issue would have a different theme. The first issue was "Skins" and focused on the various ways to visually demonstrate this concept. The Document: Skins publication was featured online in Communication Arts and Graphic Design USA. The magazine is in the Permanent Collection at the University of Bridgeport's Magnus Wahlstrom Library.
