More sketching! (May 17 - May 31)
P1 is due and we will be continuing with more sketching in P2. Please make sure to book a lab critique time to meet with Zohreh.
Project 1 is due May 31 before your lab time
The final submission for P1 is a letter-sized (8.5" x 11") PDF of your process (multiple pages are expected). Please make sure double-check all your submitted files and URLs to ensure they can be opened. We want to avoid late or problematic submission penalties whenever possible.
If you are willing to share your final deliverable for critique in lecture on May 31 please email Andrew or message over the course chat.
While Zohreh will always be available by appointment, Andrew will be available for regular office hours on:
- Mondays from 21:30-22:30 (PST)
- Wednesdays from 10:15-11:15 (PST)
Please email Andrew to let him know you will be attending. There are also some regular weekly times that Andrew will be available at for quick questions or feedback over the course chat.
