Graphic Flash: Collaboration between Students in Creative Writing, Illustration, Graphic Design, and Multimedia Design

Principal Investigator:

Kelly Roe, Oswego

Students across multiple departments will work collectively and collaboratively to create, and sustain a start-up e-magazine. The project centers on creative partnerships formed across departments for the purpose of simulating professional collaborations in the production creative work. This project will team writers, illustrators and graphic/media designers to produce an e-publication for distribution on Apple and Android based sites. The desired outcome is to establish an e-magazine that could be produced bi-annually. The project will initially feature work by SUNY Oswego students and hopes to expand to include partnerships with K-12 Schools from the surrounding area. Its purpose would be to provide an outlet for original creative work while also providing analysis of that work as well as technical explanation in order to allow others to build on the work. The ultimate goal is to empower students through participation in a creative enterprise with entrepreneurial possibilities that fosters expression and experimentation.
