THE NEW SCHOOL ZOOM WORKSHOP

ART • WORK • PLACE: EMERGENCY SESSION 

Tuesday, April 7, 2020
7:30 pm– 9:30 pm  EDT
Vera List Center for Art and Politics (via Zoom)
The New School 
Free with registration

As the COVID-19 pandemic worsens, cultural workers are experiencing mass layoffs, and it is clear the art world will never look the same. In the first hour of this emergency forum, speakers will present ten-minute reports from the field; the second hour will feature breakout Q&A sessions with the speakers as well as a labor lawyer and a children’s therapist.

Art • Work • Place was originally planned as a two-day summit on efforts to create a just and equitable workplace in the art world—union organizing at museums, protests against toxic philanthropy, challenges to institutional racism, and lawsuits against sexual harassment and gender discrimination. But the current health emergency has drastically changed our conversations and needs. This online forum will instead focus on the immediate moment, sharing concrete information and ideas: What is happening to workers at art institutions across the country? What coalition groups have been formed for solidarity and support? What are our strategies going forward?

Confirmed speakers include:

Ian Epps (Art Handlers Alliance) will explain what is occurring at the city, state, and federal levels to support precarious workers, and what actions we can take.

Michelle Millar Fisher (Art + Museum Transparency) will describe the layoffs, furloughs, and pay cuts taking place at museums and galleries, and the consequences for unionization.

Kate Zayko, LCSW,will answer questions about the new struggles parents and children are now facing.

The forum will be chaired by Nikki Columbus.

The organizers are reallocating the budget for the planned summit and speakers are forgoing their usual honorarium so that funding can be directed to aid groups and individuals in need. For more information and to apply, please click here

Organized by the PhD Program in Art History (CUNY Graduate Center), in collaboration with the James Gallery/Center for the Humanities (CUNY Graduate Center) and the Vera List Center for Art and Politics (The New School), where it is sponsored in part by the Helen Shapiro Lectureship.

5 Essential Skills of a Graphic Designer

Are you thinking of pursuing a career in graphic design? Be sure to master these essential skills of a graphic designer.

If you have a passion for art and would like to earn money from it, look no further.

Graphic design is something that many businesses invest in because it allows them to create customized advertisements. Aside from that, they can use graphic design for logos, essentially helping them make a name for themselves as a brand.

Most of the job skills of a graphic designer aren’t that hard to obtain, but they require a lot of patience and determination. Graphic design is an art, so you’ll have to spend time practicing before you’re ready to sell your work.

Keep on reading to learn about 5 essential graphic designer skills!

1. Creativity

One of the most important skills a graphic designer must have is creativity. As a graphic designer, you must be able to come up with new ideas on the fly. No graphic designer works with one client and all projects are unique.

When working with multiple clients, you’ll need to give them ideas that will help them achieve whatever their goals are. While it’s acceptable to have a certain style, you don’t want one client’s designs to look similar to another’s. This can create branding problems because consumers might confuse one client for another.

With creativity comes the ability to draw sketches, brainstorm, balance artistry with technique, and pay attention to detail. If you’re not a creative person, you’ll have a hard time coming up with ideas and helping clients see through theirs.

2. Communication

Communication is the most important skill after creativity. Graphic designers don’t pay themselves. Instead, they work with clients that pay them to complete projects. When working with clients, a graphic designer must be able to portray their ideas and give visual representations of what a client wants.

Graphic design skills revolve around being able to multi-task and work with a team, and communication will play a role in almost every task. Any time you make something, you’ll need to communicate it to your client.

Whenever a client makes a request, you must be able to fill in the gaps to understand what exactly they want.

This skill is especially important if you’re working remotely because it’s much harder to work with a client when you can’t see them in person. When working remotely, most of your communication will take place over video chats.

Without being able to quickly sketch something for a client, you need to know how to explain what you’re thinking about.

3. Time Management

Most graphic designers work with multiple clients at once because the work usually doesn’t take up an entire day. Because of this, a graphic designer must be able to effectively manage their time if they’d like to earn a decent income.

This line of work revolves around completing projects within a set period. When working with multiple clients, you must keep track of when projects are due. Most designers will allot certain hours to a client so that they can stay consistent while working.

Knowing when to prioritize a project is also important. For example, a project that has a deadline in 2 weeks should be focused on more than a project that’s due in 2 months. However, you can’t neglect anything as you must ensure that all projects are steadily progressing.

4. Technology

Understanding how to use technology is necessary when becoming a graphic designer because most of your work will take place on the computer across various programs.

You’ll need to know how to make something on a program and transfer it to another location while preserving its quality.

The most important thing to focus on is learning how to use the programs that you’ll be designing on. Programs like Photoshop provide users with a plethora of tools and features that allow them to manipulate their projects to their liking.

You’ll also need to know how your computer functions because Windows and Mac have many differences. For example, knowing how to remove icons from top bar Mac will give you more space to work on projects, something that many people are unaware of.

Tech skills will come in handy when working with clients remotely. You’ll have a better understanding of what kind of things you can get done and what will require in-person exchanges. You can then provide clients with this information so that they understand what needs to be done.

5. Typography

Typography is the skill of making text look visually appealing. This is often done with copywriting and it has a major role in graphic design. Typography skills typically come with creativity, but they’re something that most people should focus on because many clients will want text in their designs.

Keep in mind that most people looking for graphic designers are trying to create ads and build a brand. When you come up with a good font, your client can build off that and start getting recognized more often.
Now You Know the Skills of a Graphic Designer

Graphic design skills revolve around being artistic and knowing how to associate with clients. After obtaining the skills of a graphic designer, you can start working for clients and earn a decent income. Graphic design is something that will never go away, so you can get started whenever you’re comfortable.

We encourage you to start brushing up on your art skills. If you can’t draw but know how to design things on the computer, start focusing on that. When you’re ready to start taking clients, you simply need to find them on a job board or you can apply to companies.

Established in 2013, self-taught designer Franky Baca set out to construct his first garments. The brand drew inspiration from nature, architecture, classic paintings, motion pictures and his Bay Area neighborhood, ultimately creating a sense of individuality for both men and women.

In 2014, their products were available to the public using futuristic yet historic silhouettes, its singularity is what differentiated the collection from what’s already been offered in the marketplace.

Franky says “My goal in creation is for the customer to question why something so different from there style is still beautiful to them. I want to challenge them to what they thought they knew about beauty. I always wanted to design clothing and loved fashion but I was hesitant because I didn’t want to design for others. I thought it took away from my individuality. I realized I could never be them and they could never be me, and I knew I must move forward. We need to inspire people and it’s the inspired people that create heroes of tomorrow.”

Super Model Simonetta Lein Opens NYFW Show For Fashion Designer Stevie Boi

Super Model Simonetta Lein Opens NYFW Show For Fashion Designer Stevie Boi

1) From your viewpoint what was it like walking for famous designer Stevie Boi?

“It was like being home. Many people reach out to me and they are always very surprised when I talk to them with no problem. They think that because I have been named as one of the top 5 in the world I should be unapproachable. I firmly believe that the more you grow the more you should stay humble, and thank every blessing you receive. Stevie has my same philosophy. He is a very talented man who put together a professional yet kind team. That to me is synonymous of real success.”

2) How was the event different from anything you’ve ever done?

“I had many stylists dedicated to me and what I loved is that they were constantly asking me if I felt good in my outfit or I needed to change something. I truly felt that it was Stevie’s special touch and heart. Also it was the first time I got to open a NYFW show. That special feeling of butterflies in my stomach was different, as I felt responsible for the good start of the show. It was a good feeling and also tested me, I feel even stronger now.

3) What kind of vibe did the event hold?

It was an urban grunge type of vibe. My makeup and hair were different from anything else I have ever done and as a model that made me happy, as I could experiment with something different. It was artistic yet contemporary, which I appreciated.

4) As an influencer and trendsetter what did you think of his collection?

I think it was futuristic yet sellable, which is something very important for an artist and a designer. His silver touch and plastic inserts made it very particular and bold, and mixed with fashion staples as jackets, mini skirts, jeans, created an ensemble of clothes that urban people can wear to be seen yet be comfortable and edgy. I also appreciated him being inclusive with a mom with a baby, different sizes shapes and colors of models which represents the world of today.

5) What was your take on New York fashion week this year?

Knits are the new normal. Volume and movement. Plaid is back, as we have seen in my outfit. Everyone is going sustainable. I have been advocating for that for a while now and it is so great to see it happening on the runways.

6) What was your opinion of the outfit you walked in?

I would definitely wear it for an event or a day of work in the city. Perfect to be elegant but different. A retro style with plaid pattern with irregular fringes, a mini skirt and a top that made me feel so cute and feminine.

7) What was the highlight of the event from your point of view?

The show itself was really well done, and that is the major highlight. I think sometimes in fashion we look for too many external components and we forget the basics. A well organized performance leaves the public and buyers happy. He also had performers and a very cool graphic. When I got into my moment and walked for him and I saw the entire room surrounded by waves moving on the wall I thought: this is nothing but the great Stevie Boi.

Best Flooring Options For Your Home And How To Choose The Perfect One

Perhaps the hardest and most painstaking challenge when decorating your home is the task of choosing the right flooring, and it can seem like a daunting task. To do so, you have to combine your taste with careful thinking about the aspect of practicality during the process. It is one of the main parts of your house, it is a place where you walk, sit, and stand, where your loved ones roam around, it is a place where your kids play, and it is a place where you watch your kids grow up. Thus it deserves all the extra attention and effort that it requires.

Choosing the right floor for your house is more than just the perfect aesthetics, there are several other factors that should influence your decision, including durability, required maintenance, and the potential value it can add to your house in case you decide to sell it. Flooring is not something you change every day, and when you are choosing the right flooring for your house, you should ideally be looking for something that will last you a lifetime. Fortunately, there are more flooring options available than ever. Let’s have a look at some of them along with their pros and cons so that it gets easier for you to choose.

Flooring options

Carpet

Carpet flooring offers warmth and softness that is unmatched by other types of flooring. It is also available in a wide variety of colors, patterns, and textures, making it perhaps the most versatile style option of flooring. Due to new innovations in carpet flooring like the synthetic fiber carpets, the age-old problem of stains has also been solved as these modern carpets are resistant to them. The natural alternative with the desired resilience, durability, and comfort is the wool carpet.

Carpet flooring has many advantages. Firstly, no other option can beat the range of style, color, and pattern options that carpets offer. These options are virtually endless. Secondly, they have the ability to absorb sound and act as sound insulators. Thirdly, they are relatively easier to replace. Fourthly, they also insulate your feet from the concrete.

There are a few disadvantages related to carpet flooring too. Firstly, unlike other surfaces, carpets are stained more easily, and spills are harder to clean. Secondly, unless vacuumed regularly, they can store dust and allergen. Thirdly, they are prone to water and moisture damage.

Vinyl

Vinyl is a flooring material that has commercial applications and is usually seen in commercial places. It is preferred for commercial applications because it has the properties of being cleaned with ease, it is low-maintenance, and it is economical. It also offers a wide array of color choices and patterns. Many vinyl choices offer durability and texture choices by incorporating technology. Karndean is a luxury vinyl flooring brand and is an example of good quality vinyl flooring. Karndean is an excellent alternative to wood flooring as it can have the same look being made with a textured surface, and the expense of installing a Karndean floor is much smaller than that of installing a wooden floor.

Vinyl flooring offers many advantages. Firstly and most importantly it is affordable and offers excellent value for money. Secondly, its maintenance is easy and thus saves money, time, and effort. Thirdly, it can be laid in a seamless manner determined by the size and layout of the room.

There are a few disadvantages, too, that come along with vinyl flooring. Firstly, if you are an eco-friendly customer, the bad news for you is that vinyl flooring is not exactly as eco-friendly as you might want it to be when compared with other choices as it is not made from sustainable materials. Secondly, it is very easy for vinyl flooring to get tears and cuts when heavy objects are dragged on the floor. Thirdly, the heat tolerance of vinyl flooring is low, and it can get burnt.

Wood

Arguably the most beautiful, aesthetically pleasing, and desirable flooring option amongst them all is wood, as it has been for hundreds of years. It has stood the test of time because of its durability, character, and insulation. It is also a very versatile option as there are a plethora of options to choose from – Teak, Oak, Hickory, Maple, Jatoba, American Chestnut, and the list goes on. Within this category of flooring, you can choose between engineered wood and solid wood.

Wood flooring has numerous advantages which have made it an age-old preference for home flooring. Firstly, it is very durable and lasts a long time, given it is properly maintained. Secondly, it has the quality of being renewable. Thirdly, when you take into perspective its renewability, it becomes an economical choice in the long run. Fourthly, it offers diverse style choices.

Opting for wood can also have a few disadvantages. Firstly, wood flooring can develop creaks and squeaks over time. Secondly, liquid and moisture can cause damage to wood flooring. Thirdly, certain types of wood can be prone to damage by the sun.

Tile

Tile flooring is durable, lasts a long time, compatible with in-floor radiating systems, and practically offers an endless range of style and design options. Tile flooring comes with many advantages. Firstly, the choices you have for styles, colors, and textures are infinite. Secondly, it is a very long-lasting and durable option. Thirdly, it is very easy to maintain. Fourthly, it is cost-effective in the long run.

Along with the advantages, tile flooring also has its disadvantages. Firstly, it has less cushion and can break items dropped on it. Secondly, it can be a cold surface to stand on in the winter. Thirdly, glossy and smooth finishes in tile flooring can cause it to be slippery, especially when it is wet and thus can present a hazard.

What should you consider?

In order to choose the perfect flooring for your house, you need to take a few things into consideration. Firstly you need to determine whether the flooring will be in a high moisture area or not, and choose the material accordingly. Secondly, if the floor is to be used by children and pets, more durable material is needed. Thirdly, you need to determine your budget and choose accordingly. Fourthly, you need to take into account the maintenance you can provide and then choose a high or low maintenance floor accordingly.

Conclusion

Flooring is a very important part of your house so you need to put extra thought into what you’re choosing. Luckily for you, with so many options available, you’re bound to find something you like!

What flooring do you have at your house and why? Let us know in the comments below!

What is HDPE (High-Density Polyethylene) sheet? 

High-density polyethylene (HDPE) is probably the most widely used plastic sheet. Think about the toy trucks and storage containers, all these products are made from HDPE. This thermoplastic is known for being light and strong. Most companies are going for HDPE plastic sheets because they can reduce the material used to manufacture and package products because of their ideal weight and strength. 

Why HDPE is popular?

HDPE is the perfect substitute for heavier materials. No wonder, many companies that are going for sustainable business models, such as reduction of material used in packaging prefer using HDPE. Below are more benefits of HDPE:   

  • It’s lightweight. Although products made up of HDPE are lightweight, they are very strong. This is the reason why car manufacturers use it to improve fuel efficiency by having lighter cars.
  • HDPE is impact resistant. Plastic toys and other products are not affected when you drop them because they have great impact resistance. 
  • It’s long-lasting. Products made of HDPE last long because it’s weather-resistant and also resists mildew, mold, insects, and rotting. 
  • Malleability. HDPE can be molded into any shape, meaning you can have a customized product that meets your expectations.   

Major benefits of HDPE

While most people use other plastics like polypropylene and polyester, HDPE has become the most popular plastic. This is not only because it’s versatile, but it’s also one of the most recycled plastics. It can be recycled in its rigid forms such as containers and flexible forms like plastic bags. You can get more information by visiting https://www.regal-plastics.com/hdpe-high-density-sheet/.   

HDPE sheet is resistant to stain, moisture, and odor, making it suitable for use in the manufacturing and food processing industry. It’s also an ideal substitute for wood and metal because it’s chemical resistant, it has high impact strength, easy to clean, easily machined or fabricated, and it’s cost-effective. Besides, the HDPE sheet has a natural color that is FDA approved.  

Applications of HDPE 

HDPE sheet comes in two colors, which are black and natural and are available with smooth and textured finishes. HDPE is used in various applications, and you might have used a product made from it without realizing it. Some of the applications that use HDPE include piping systems, milk jugs, fuel tanks, shampoo bottles, hard hats, water bottles, and bread bags. 

As you can see, it’s used in a wide range of industries. Therefore, next time you find a plastic product, look at the bottom to find out if it has a recycle 2 which indicates that it has HDPE.  

Sustainability

Thankfully, HDPE is recyclable, and in this way, it prevents landfills. Nearly, most of the recycling programs accept HDPE products, such as bottles. Recycled HDPE is also as popular and versatile material as its counterpart. You can use it in most of the same applications mentioned above. Some of the other key uses include recycled plastic storage containers, recycled plastic automobile parts, recycled plastic outdoor furniture, and recycled plastic trash cans, recycled bins, and compost bins.

4 Easy Bedroom Makeover Tips You’ll Love

Your bedroom is the place in your home where you should feel the most comfortable and love spending time in but having the same layout and decoration in your bedroom for a long time can start to get not only boring but also depressing. Don’t let your bedroom become a source of stress and boredom. Try out some of these four easy makeover tips to breathe new life into your room!

A Splash of Paint Goes a Long Way

Sometimes it’s the simplest things that make the biggest difference. Whether you’re completely changing the look of a wall or just rejuvenating it with a fresh coat of paint, a new color on your bedroom walls will instantly brighten the space and can even make it look bigger than it originally was. You don’t have to simply paint a wall in the same block color. If you’re feeling really adventurous, you can paint a mural on your wall of whatever you want. This will not only breathe new life into your bedroom but customize it completely to your tastes with a mural of things you love. 

Switch Up the Color Scheme

If you’re getting bored of looking at the same old room or you’re finding that you’ve grown out of the color scheme that you once chose, you can easily change it to give your room a whole new feel. For a classy look, try replacing your existing room with modern and elegant colors such as duck egg paired with a classy and bold tan. It can be difficult to picture what colors would look good paired together or whether your existing décor will stand or need to be placed, so try creating mood boards on websites like Pinterest to get a clearer idea of what you want before you commit. 

Try Minimalism

Minimalism is a craze that not only applies to lifestyle but also applies to a style of designing. Making use of white walls, muted colors or earthy tones, minimalism wants to play down a design and make it look elegant, classic and raw rather than turning your head with bright, bold colors. A classic minimalist look is plain white walls, little decoration or clutter, string lights and a tapestry hanging on the wall. Plants are also immensely popular in the minimalism movement, as they add an airy and elegant look to a room, so get planting and put them wherever you can! Whilst this look isn’t for everyone as it can seem quite empty or boring to some, it is very easy to achieve, so why not try minimalism?

Comfort is Important Too

Whilst the idea of a makeover makes people think simply of what they can see, it is important that your makeover takes comfort into account too, as people often spend a long time in their bedrooms, so it’s important to be comfortable! If you have an old wooden chair at your desk, this is the perfect opportunity to throw it out and get more comfortable with a simple velvet, comfy chair decorated with a throw. As your bedroom is where you sleep, it’s important that your makeover includes your mattress. Throw out your old uncomfortable mattress and replace it with a beautiful memory foam mattress, designed to adapt to your curves and figure for ultimate sleep quality. If you’re unsure where to find these, check out this one from Zoma and never have a restless night again!

Sometimes a bedroom makeover is just what you need to lift your spirits and bring new excitement and new beginnings into your life. It doesn’t have to be a difficult full-scale project, try some of these four easy bedroom makeover tips you’ll love and, most of all, make sure you have fun!
