I am teaching Desktop Publishing in fall 2020 at Lamar University. It is effectively a design class that covers all media. The students are required to build a portfolio of their assigned projects upon which they will be graded. I decided that I should do all the assignments myself to serve as examples. Of course, I am not going to claim they are all great, or that I necessarily spent the amount of time I expect the students to spend on the projects, but that is the privilege of rank.
The following is the PowerPoint slide show for a research presentation on the influence of two Russian artists, El Lissitzky and Alexandr Rodchenko, on contemporary graphic design. The student presentation lectures are supposed to be 15 minutes, but I, as usual, completely overdid it. This is one of my favorite design periods so I got carried away. I drew on a variety of sources, both print and online. I now have a healthy collection of related links to add to my collection of books.
