i am overly concerned with words and pictures.

    Today we got swamped with @twentywhat design meetings to narrow down our nameplate (look familiar?). It felt like a real magazine, with constant instructions to change even the tiniest things (like the tail of a “t”). I loved it.

    Tomorrow we’ll meet bright and early over coffee to plan the magazine’s style sheet and color scheme. Can’t wait — thanks to everyone on the interwebz who shared wise design advice to me yesterday!

    Today we got assigned to #redesign the @twentywhat logo and nameplate! Here are some ideas I contributed. We’ll vote on the official one tomorrow. Do any stand out to you? I tend to prefer bold typefaces, industrial lines and splashes of color. One of my classmates told me my work looked modern and edgy. I really liked to hear that but it’s tricky because @twentywhat is a professional women’s magazine, and an “edgy look” doesn’t fly for the target audience. Still, I’m really happy to play with type, color & graphics again. It’s like being back in Boot Camp. :)

    [I admit— I snatched that fashion photo from the Web! I don’t know the photographer and am sorry not to give credit. In my defense, this is purely for my education in design. Zero commercial gain.]

    I’ve never been a gold star student. My dad was a straight A student and I always wanted to show him I was too. I never could — every semester, without fail, there would be something off. This has been my last semester at Newhouse (capstone aside) and I finally did it. Content doesn’t even beginning to describe it. :)
It took an entire academic career to learn how to be a student, but I did finally figure it out.

    It happened! But it’s not over yet. I donned the funny hood, the Harry Potter robes and the cardboard hat & tassle, but there’s still a full capstone project to complete before I snag that master’s diploma! Wish me luck!

    If you don’t know how the master’s hood works, you probably don’t deserve to have the master’s degree.

    For my final project in Designing Interactivity (and final project at Newhouse!), I’m creating a portfolio website from scratch. Lots of planning and coding left to do, but here’s what I have so far. It’s a whole lot of nothing right now, but I’ll post the finished project this time next week when it’s due.

    On Getting Denied by Aziz Ansari

    Here’s a little post I penned at 2 a.m. after spooning the last dregs of chocolate chip cookie dough in our freezer. Aziz Aziz Aziz why you gotta be so cold, man?

    newshousebunker:

    A PRESS PASS is a golden ticket for journalists, photographers, filmmakers and any storyteller wanting to tell a proper story. A denied press pass can feel like anything from a minor snub to a slap in the face. Last Friday, it was a slap in the face. Like many other campus media, we had a reporter/photographer team ready and rearing to cover comedian Aziz Ansari last week, but Aziz Ansari, well, he just wasn’t ready and rearing for us.

    Just one day before Ansari was scheduled to perform at the Oncenter War Memorial on April 13, University Union sent an urgent and apologetic email. After being completely unresponsive for several weeks, Ansari dropped the ball.

    "This is the S.I. fucking Newhouse School of Syracuse University and we’re going to do things right."
    Prof. Masiclat to Prof. Passetti on whether “malleable” was a better word than “changeable” to describe the ideal website’s interface.

    Hey there. My website is finally up with freshly coded design, thanks to some spiffy HTML/CSS I learned in Stephen Masiclat’s class today. Check it out, poke around.
I made it with Cargo Collective, by far the most elegant user interface I’ve seen of the publishing platforms. Good and ritzy for a student portfolio.
Boycott GoDaddy until they make better commercials.

    On a question about keeping CSS declarations on one line

    Student:But will that break the code?
    Passetti:No, but it’ll break my eyes. And my heart.

    Today I created my first set of Web pages in class. I felt like Lisbeth Salander. The guy in front of me said, &#8220;I feel like I learned more today than in all my years of college.&#8221; Not sure if I agree, but it was definitely one of those classes where everyone was on the same wavelength, everyone was getting it, everyone felt like a total boss.

    The journalistic jackpot

    Had one of those rare moments when the “bureaucrat” I was interviewing handed over a 60-page document explaining exactly why the city school district was doing an abysmal job educating disabled students.

    Me: (incredulous & high-pitched) Could I make a copy of this?

    Lady: Oh, no, keep it. Also, here’s a seven-page summary. 

    Me: WHAT?

    This is a bit late, but here are some shots from Bob Herbert’s visit to campus. I had a toothache and had been popping painkillers for so many weeks that it became my norm. So when I got to the dinner, I made the faux pas of accepting a glass of wine, forgetting not to mix the two. I spent the dinner woozily making conversation with professors sitting next to me and I can’t remember a single thing we talked about.

    However, the dinner was exquisite. It was held in the Maxwell Founder’s room and there were TWO pieces of steak, which I happily chomped on, root canal be damned. There were also scallops, smashed potatoes and a bed of spinach. I wondered if Bob Herbert was asked to suggest his favorite dessert to the caterers because he wolfed down the banana cake, banana ice cream and syrupy fried banana slices with purpose.

    I also got to interview him earlier that day, which was both amazing and flustering. I learned that he never wanted to be a journalist, he wanted to be a playwright. And for as much as he writes about how hard it is to get jobs now, he’s never had to apply for a job in his life. In fact, the first time The New York Times offered him a job, he turned them down. Only after they sweetened the deal did he say, OK, I’ll be an op-ed columnist for The New York Times. NBD.

    For his book, “Wounded Colossus,” he said he needed more young people to interview about trouble getting jobs. 

    "Email me," he said. "In case you know anyone."

    Email him?! I was so stunned that as he spelled out his email address, I realized I was just staring at him in wonder.

    "Do you have a pen?" he asked.

    I floundered around in my chair, still attached to my interview microphone, not sure if I should get a pen because the producer told me earlier, don’t move

    "You want to be a journalist and you don’t have a pen?" he opened up the flap of his blazer like a thug showing off his glocks. "Look, I carry around three pens! What if a meteorite crashes outside Newhouse right now? What would you write with?"

    And that’s how I was schooled by Bob Herbert.
