Bashing, hacking, disrupting, and refining will push both discourse and content into elegant working objects […]

Course: Advanced Typography / Year One

The Legendary Debates of Graphic Design The debate as to whether design (or graphic design) can truly be classified as art in the literal sense has raged on for years.

Course: Light Studio / Year One Topic Studio

Light Studio will center on the ethereal and physical character of light, as a source of inspiration and provocation. Light(ing) is one of the basic constituents of our built environment.

The Block The Beast The Tower / MFA Thesis 2015

Lawrence’s work examines the role of competing mythologies in the formulation of ideas of place.
