COLLEGE TOURIST: AN INTERACTIVE SITE WHERE STUDENTS SHARE THEIR WORLDS

 

College Tourist is a newest interactive website, where students around the globe can creatively exchange and publish personal college town postcards in the form of photographs, uploaded images and graphics. College Tourist spawned from Alison Tatham’s passion for travel as well as her dedication and desire to be more involved in her daughter’s college experience. With the help of Lori Stratford, the two women launched the “College Tourist Million Postcard Project” which embraces the spirit of being a traveler. Their mission in the project is to bring out the joy in travel among college students. Alison and Lori successfully created a niche and an international public platform for students across the world to share memories and daily wonders of their universities.

Some of the categories found on the College Tourist include: College Street Style; Travel Articles; Student blogger posts offering insights from traveling abroad to fashion trends and travel news; Facebook app where students can upload a photo and offer tips on restaurants, shopping areas, hang outs, dream destinations, and weekend hotspots; Facebook app postcard.

College Tourist launched in April 2012 and provides a digital method for students to share the best of their own college town, such as where to eat, shop or just hang out.  The College Tourist team provides a site which creates a community of local knowledge and shared experiences for college students to inspire one another. Furthermore, the College Tourist blog enhances the website experience with blog posts that encompass travel, fashion and food. The College Tourist team has traveled extensively and lived in numerous countries around the world including Japan, Singapore, Hong Kong, the United Kingdom and Australia, before settling in to life in the United States.

MY NAME IS A BRAND: STUDENTS PLAY WITH INTERNATIONAL LOGOS (ROUND # 2)

On request, some other logos drawn by students… Brands and  trademarks surround us. They besiege us. They became part of our lives. We often identify a brand with our character and style. And it’s really funny what the Holy Family Institute’s students in Comonte di Seriate (Italy) did. They enjoyed to play with their names drawing internationally known brands graphs. Leaded by their Professor mrs. Falconi, students drew their names according  to some companies brand design (Disney, Lacoste, Nike, EstaThe)whose trademarks are around us. It was a compelling game which  became a  good exercise in observation too.

IL MIO NOME E’ UN MARCHIO

Ecco ancora alcuni nomi disegnati secondo la grafica di celebri logo internazionali… I marchi ci circondano. Ci assediano. Son entrati a far parte della nostra vita. Spesso, in un marchio ci riconosciamo, con il nostro carattere e con il nostro stile. Ed è simpatico quello che hanno fatto gli studenti dell’Istituto Sacra Famiglia di Comonte di Seriate (Bergamo) che si sono divertiti a rivestire i propri nomi con i tratti grafici di noti marchi di prodotti. Sotto la guida della docente prof.ssa Falconi, gli studenti hanno proposto i loghi di società multinazionali i cui, marchi, sono sotto gli occhi di tutti ( tra gli altri, Disney, Lacoste, Nike, EstaThe). Un irresistibile gioco che si è trasformato anche in un bell’esercizio di osservazione.
