Texas State University workshop 2015

Texas State University is a state university located in San Marcos, Texas. Established in 1899 as the Southwest Texas State Normal School, it opened its doors in 1903 to 303 students with a focus to educate students to become teachers. Since that time it has grown into the largest institution in the Texas State University System and the fifth-largest university in the state of Texas boasting an enrollment of over 36,000 students. Academically, it is composed of 10 colleges and about 50 schools and departments across multiple disciplines, including nationally recognized programs in Geography, Criminal Justice and Music. President Lyndon B. Johnson graduated from the University in 1930, making Texas State the only university in Texas to have a President of the United States as an alumnus.

The two-day workshop was aimed at students using animated information for their presentations. Students learnt the basic procedures and uses of animated typography. The first part of the workshop on day one was in the form of creative training on the theme “T is for Texas”. In the second part each student prepared a design for one letter from the text "COMMUNICATION DESIGN”. All the students did a great job, and I am proud to say it was not only the best workshop focus on animated typography I have made, but it was also the best student group. An important part of the workshop was the mutual communications and cooperation among the students during the final presentation. Lisa, Andrea, Colton, Bill, Zachary, Asha, Yamna, Caleb, Jordan, Carolyn and Cameo you were truly brilliant. Thank you for a wonderful time at Texas State University and for your great work. I would like to thank Texas State University and namely Claudia Roeschmann for the opportunity to present my work. Thank You !!!
