By providing students with the opportunity to enhance their college applications our badging pilot will work to directly address the lack of diversity in design schools and colleges. We can use digital badges to develop strong portfolios and use the students’ skill development in these “out of school experiences” to make up for the deficit in some of their schools.

This project is designed to have them focus on their individual needs throughout the college application process and can also double as a portfolio piece for their applications. OBJECTIVES Students will: - Design a packaging design that may be utilized as a portfolio piece - Create a resource document of their activities and accomplishments that can be utilized for a resume, fodder for a personal statement or scholarship applications - Create a student specific “shopping list" of important criteria for evaluating potential schools . ..E.7TO. 'I JOTES TIPS -Focus the students on exploring personal interests and passions, not on specific career names or design majors -Utilizing examples from popular brands can help to demonstrate how visual elements can represent the message or intention of a brand. -Require that students spend time sketching many ideas instead of creating one well executed one. ADDITIONAL ACIIVITIES -“Spirit Animal" - Have students close their eyes and imagine their personality floating in space. They must say the first thing that comes to their minds out loud. Ask what animal they would be. Then with their eyes still closed ask them to name 3 traits of that animal. If there are negative traits like "lazy, " spend time afterwards to change them to positive attributes like "chill" or “laid- back. ' Students can use this instead of a quiz as the starting point for their project. STEP-BY-STEP 1. Complete the personality questionnaire to generate ideas 2. Create your brand name or title and choose the specific mood, colors, and personality traits your packaging will embody 3. Sketch your brand concepts 4. Create your packaging design prototype 5. Complete a written summary of your paokaging’s design elements and what each one represents. WRITTEN RESPONSE - Write a brief description and explanation for each element: - I chose the color . ... .. because it represents . ... .. - Mypackage says . ... .. because . ... . . . - When you look at my project you should know that l. ... and I also . ... ..
