Professor Eddy Lopez, Department of Art and Art History at Bucknell University, tasked students in the ARST243 Graphic Design 1 course with the development of an ethnographic design assignment focused on the town of Centralia and its people. Each student visited and photographed the area, and met and interviewed former residents of the town. Students drew on this content to layout a four-page visual story for the magazine.

The class also built on work conducted by students in Professor Vanessa Massaro’s Geography 326 class. The result is a visual design and ethnographic exercise, combining group and individual design efforts.
