Cross Cultural Perspective of Visual Communication, University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire, presentation topic: “native america: truth and imagery”, April 20-21, 2007
The conference hosted national and international researchers, faculty, and students presenting scholarly research, historical studies, creative experiences, and pedagogies that addressed cross-cultural perspectives of visual communication.
His presentation –“Native America: Truth and Imagery”, was a presentation of a project I did with students focusing on popular cultural and how current and historical Native Americans are perceived as well as addressing the needs of Native American design clients. Researched topics included films, photography, package design, fashion, logotypes, and food products, lectures by Native Americans, and attending the 51st Annual Chicago American Indian Center Powwow.
A critical analysis of these items preceded package design proposals for “Smoke Signals”, (a Native American written and directed film), a cover and double page spread for the Chicago Tribune Magazine (highlighting the Chicago American Indian Center Powwow),and a music CD package design for the Mark Cleveland Band (Eastern Cherokee) where two student’s proposals were printed by the client.
