99 Design Challenge with Joshua Butler

During the months of November and December 2009, DATA digital imaging students interested in graphic design worked with local graphic artist Joshua Butler.  Joshua spoke to students about his high school experience at Idyllwild Arts Academy, earning a business degree from CSUSB, working as a web marketing manager for American Leak Detection, and his continued pursuit and passion for drawing.
After teaching students about logo design and Adobe's Illustrator and Kuler, Joshua challenged students with a real world project as offered by the design community at 99  Through interaction in class and via the Digital Arts Education Ning, students received critique of their designs before submitting them to the online design community.

The skills learned from this experience were further applied to more logo design challenges on and for the DigiCom Logo Design Challenge, Heinz Ketchup Creativity Contest 2010, Doodle-4-Google, and more on 99 Designs.
