How to Avoid Burnout →
This article from Design*Sponge is directed towards self-employed creatives, but I think all the advice is helpful to design-y types.
Vox Trip Details & Possible Studios
Remember, this Thursday (Sept 30) we’ll be signing up students for the Vox trip. We will open up sign-ups in FAC 316 after the 3-6 class period (roughly 6:05) so that if your schedule conflicts with meetings, you can still go on the trip. All you need to bring is a $100 check made out to Rachel Tanner. Cash is ok if you don’t have checks, but much more scary for Rachel to have to...
Ligature 20 Brainstorming →
As promised, here are the notes from the Ligature 20 brainstorming session. We broke into groups based on ethos (ethics), logos (logic), and pathos (passion), 3 elements of good design. We cut things out of magazines, putzed around, made some awesome mood boards, and evaluated those mood boards as a group. Follow the link to the Google Docs file.

voxGRAPHIS Atlanta Trip
Yesterday at the meeting we heard from Rachel, our VP, about this year’s trip to Atlanta, where we will be touring the studios and firms of Atlanta’s creative industry. The trip is Nov 3-6, with the 3rd and 6th reserved for travel. We will provide our own transportation by carpooling, so start thinking about whether you’ll be able to drive, and which friends you’d like ride...
Bigs & Littles
If you were at the first meeting this semester, you’ll know that this year, we plan on assigning Bigs & Littles! We stole this idea from the Greek system in the hopes that design students already in the program can help freshman and sophomores with any trepidation they might have about the admissions process and/or upper division. Bigs and Littles can be as casual or involved as you...
Brand New →
Brand New is a before-and-after identity blog. The posts are thorough and thoughtful, and inspire interesting dialog in the comments.
You’ve reached the future home of Vox Graphis, a graphic design organization made up of University of Florida students. We’re working out some kinks here (obviously), but check back this upcoming semester for the goods!
