ArtCenter College of Design

Masters in Digital Media Design

1995 – 1997

My time at ArtCenter Collecge of Design was the best experience I’ve ever had. Having access to all the undergraduate graphic design classes as well as graduate fine art and critical theory classes allowed me to create a thesis on communication design that took a hard look at design in culture and business.

All projects led to my final thesis paper on ‘open’ communication (dialogue). My final project was entitiled MonsterMesh. It was a DVD and web-based system that allowed the user to select any subject they were interested in (Monsters was the example), then choose their level of participation. The software would then aggregate information in various media forms based on the user’s willingness to accept the relationships.
