Published May 6, 2014

Garcia_RoigThe fifth edition of Launching the Imagination: A Comprehensive Guide to Basic Design is now available. Written by Professor Mary Stewart, this 400-page textbook provides a lively introduction to two, three and four dimensional design. It also includes four chapters on concept development and critical thinking.

Especially notable in this edition are contributions by four members of the FSU painting faculty:
-Carrie Ann Baade (in an extended interview)
-Ray Burggraf (professor emeritus)
-Lilian Garcia Roig,
-Mark Messersmith.
Two examples are attached.

Interviews with contemporary artists give students insight into the creative process used by a remarkable group of designers, metalsmiths, painters, and architects.
