Art students at Missouri University of Science and Technology have created new sign ideas for the campus library to help remind visitors of appropriate sound levels and other library rules.
Students will present their projects, created as part of the Innovation Through Design Thinking digital art course at Missouri S&T, at 5 p.m. Monday, Oct. 5, on the first floor of the Curtis Laws Wilson Library. The projects will be displayed on the Nonavitra Visualization Wall, a series of nine interconnected large screens that can display as one or individually.
The projects were initially suggested by the library’s staff, who are looking for additional ways to enforce the rules of the building. Students also provided ideas on how to optimize the library’s layout design.
“The overall goal of the course is to give students the opportunity to apply empathetic research, collaborate to solve a problem to make life better and to experience STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics) in a scholarly atmosphere,” says Laurie Myers, a lecturer in arts, languages, and philosophy at Missouri S&T. “Students used rapid prototyping to form their projects. They displayed the spirit of the course by using innovative approaches to create their ideas with limited time and resources.”
