The Design Code

Diane Solvang-Angell book cover

Earlier this month, Academy Schools welcomed graphic designer, illustrator and author, Diane Solvang-Angell. Diane shared her educational journey with Upper School students, highlighting periods of her life between academia and professional experience, transitions in artistic style and media, and her connection to The Design Code.

Her conversation with Academy Schools students included a hands-on doodle activity she calls Ideas in Action. You can view some of our doodles on her website by clicking on this link: http://thedesigncode.com/thedesigncode.com/Ideas_in_Action.html.  Each doodle stared with a single dot on a blank file card. Just look where each of our students went with their doodles!

Our hope is that Diane will return to Academy Schools in the new year and guide students in an exploration of web based design principles, launched through apps that support doodle play.

Thank you, Diane, for sharing your talents with us!
