What's New in Communications

Date: Friday, April 13, 2018
Subject: What's New in Communications


What’s New in Communications?

Lots of changes in the Communication Strategies department and we wanted to keep you all in the loop!

For starters, we have some new resources. Bookmark our page on the website at www.ringling.edu/communications for easy access to our social media tips, editorial guidelines, fact sheet, copywriting + proofing processes, primary logos, project request forms, workflow + org charts, approved hashtags, and more.

Onto the fun stuff. We have some lovely new faces. We welcome you to come down and say hi in person, but for now, we’ll introduce you virtually.

Say hi to the new guys!

Marquee Doyle, Senior Production Manager/Senior Editor
We welcomed Marquee in November as a new addition to ART Network and Communication Strategies. He will be managing shoots, mentoring and managing student workers, and recording/editing video assets for the College. Marquee is an award-winning editor with strong motion design skills.  He graduated from Middle Tennessee State University with a BA in Mass Communications and a minor in Film and Animation. His work experience includes GAC (Great American Country) and RFD-TV in Nashville, Scripps Network in Knoxville, and most recently Triad Media in Tampa. He is currently making the commute from Clearwater to Sarasota, which this time of the year consumes three hours of his day. That’s dedication! He is hoping to move closer to campus very soon.

Eddie Ryan, Digital Designer
Timing is everything and we were fortunate that Eddie was ready to come home. He is one of our own…a Ringling College Graphic Design graduate! After Ringling, Eddie made his way to Atlanta and a new upstart cable channel called CNN. After working there for 32 years as an award-winning motion designer, he returned to Florida in January, and Communication Strategies welcomed him (and his immense talent) with open arms. Eddie is responsible for creating the digital/motion presence for the College, so you will be seeing his designs on screens across campus, in presentations, and of course on our website, social media and in digital ads. For a moment of R&R, look for his daily sunset posts on FB.

Andres Paz
You may notice a familiar face in ART Network and Communication Strategies. Motion Design graduate (’15) Andres Paz is lending his time and talents to the department. He works closely with students on shoots such as tutorials, guest artists and speaker presentations, and special events, and partners with Marquee to provide editing and camera workshops for ART Network student workers and club members. Thanks to Andres, who has been trafficking our student’s workflow, for the first time in 7 years we are caught up on editing. There are many weeks when we have 4-5 shoots per day, so this is a huge accomplishment.

Barbara Pringle
Barbara joined Communication Strategies through Kelly Temp in the role of Project Assistant. As the department continues to grow, Barbara is key to keeping us organized and trafficking all of our incoming projects. She is here to help Monday – Friday from 8:30 – 12:30.

So there you have it! We hope our new hub saves you time, emails, and, potentially miles of walking to the south end of campus (not that we don't all love meetings). Let us know what you think! And we look forward to working with you.

From,
Your Friends in Communications

FEE                    None

 

 

Lemur Conservation Foundation is dedicated to the conservation of lemurs, the most endangered primates on Earth, through managed breeding, education, research, and art. Art is essential to the human experience because it interprets how we relate to the world  and creates empathy and deeper understanding in ways that words and statistics cannot.  It completes the "story" started by empirical evidence. LCF embraces art as one of the most effective and vital vehicles for conservation and uses it universally.

 

 

HISTORY OF LCF/RCAD COLLABORATIONS

Since  2006, Lemur Conservation Foundation (LCF) has collaborated with Ringling College of Art and Design (RCAD):

 

In 2006, Don Brandes' illustration class held a contest among selected students for the best lemur painting to be featured on the 2007 LCF calendar which Sarah Watts won.

 

In 2010, LCF partnered with RCAD's "Conceptual Practices" class taught by Michael Wyshock. They produced a work of art that brilliantly expressed the environmental crisis in Madagascar.  Several members of the class visited the Reserve, learned of the lemurs' plight, and walked away with 8,000 misprinted Madagascar postcards with the mandate being to recycle them into something like "a house of cards" that reflected the island's escalating fragility.  These cards became an agitative 8' X 7' installation in the hands of Mr. Wyshock's students who cut them up and reconstructed them into a poignant series of panels, some depicting images of lemurs gouged and burned.

 

In 2014, David Foote's marketing/promotion class examined LCF's branding and communications in general.  Divided into two teams, the class presented evocative ideas and promotional materials for LCF's use.

 

From 2012 through 2015, the LCF/RCAD collaboration embarked on its most ambitious project to date. Created by Michael Wyshock and Mark Anderson, the Natalie Quay Lemur Lotus Tower epitomizes the LCF art-science-conservation concept because the tower's uses are twofold.  As a beautiful work of art, it satisfies two functions. First it provides enrichment for the lemurs as they use the tower as a unique jungle gym. Second, the platform provides scientists and researchers the opportunity to study lemur behavior from the tree canopy where the animals live. The building of the tower also afforded opportunities for RCAD students to participate in creating an environmental, community-based project.

 

 

CONCEPT FOR RCAD FACULTY AESTHETO-BLITZ:

The proposed program uses the LCF lemurs as a construct for this art/science intersection and the impetus for a collection of compelling artistic work LCF can use to promote increased awareness for our critical mission. LCF proposes an "Aestheto-Blitz" for RCAD faculty as a prelude to student participation. The idea is based on the concept of "Bio-Blitzes" where scientists of different specialties swarm over a targeted patch of habitat to document quickly all the species found there.

 

Jono Miller, retired New College of Florida environmental educator and activist,  proposed an Aestheto-Blitz where artists - poets, painters, sculptors, filmmakers, photographers, essayists, dancers, musicians, etc. "free-range" in the same area over a limited period of time. The intent is to capture the moods, quality of light, wildlife, botany, and of course the lemurs wonders of the forest. The resulting art can convey what is at stake - nothing short of EXTINCTION.

 

 

SCHEDULE

9:00                     Arrival - Briefing on overall concept and goals, safety and lemur protocol

9:45                     Introduction to forests and lemurs

12:00                            Lunch

1:00-6:00    Individual work in forests and Center

6:00-8:00    Cocktails and dinner

8:15                     Departure

(Directions and other details will follow)

 

In sum, the LCF/RCAD Aestheto-Blitz could well create the works and insights that further a sense of mystery, wonder and amazement to stir the hearts and minds of those who need encouragement in becoming advocates of life-sustaining biodiversity.

 


Out now (and again): announcing the publication series Exhibition Takeaways

ExhibitionTakeaways123.jpg  Size: 412 Kb

As an open-ended publication series, Exhibition Takeaways follows and extends the exhibitions of the Brizdle-Schoenberg Special Collections Center at the Ringling College of Art + Design. The series serves as a guide to the collections, a starting point for a topic, an archive of an event, a catalog of after thoughts, and an opportunity for design. This counter-punctual project will, with any luck, interest our readers and accumulate a body of ideas related to the studies and histories of art, design, communication, media, leisure, and publishing.

Riso-printed versions are given away free at the Center (while supplies last!), and digital versions are available to download through the Center's website and the Alfred R. Goldstein Library catalog. The Exhibition Takeaways are designed in-house. The ink color rotates between issues and is chosen on press. The first three titles, published in 2018, are now available:

*More* is More: Xerographic Exchange and the I.S.C.A. Quarterly (B-SSCC #01)

Encoded & Encrypted (B-SSCC #02)

Every miniature book in the collection, measuring no more than three inches, arranged in various states of attention and repose (B-SSCC #03)

The exhibition program to which these refer is reliant on the free play of research, design, and interpretation. We know that exhibition names change when typesetting texts. And the placement of book objects can trigger a new through line. Welcoming this kind of correspondence becomes part of the game. Things look and sound different when they become material and practiced.

So too, is the spirit behind the Exhibition Takeaways. We hope they offer readers an exploratory spark. To check out the series, please stop by or visit us online, now (and again).
