  6. Curvy Truth Kernels


    February 16, 2014 by Kathryn Kuttis

    photoSeven weeks into the term and my J452 students are finally letting their hair down.

    What’s happened? Well, the infographic assignment is upon us. This is one challenge  that you don’t want to do on your own. To get the job done students are asking each other questions, sharing resources and may even be forming a coup d’État to overthrow the third floor technology staff. (shhhhh)

    Despite the looming printer war, our class has morphed into a productive design studio. A collaborative din has taken over the room as students work together to understand the language and beauty of data visualization.

  7. Smart Kernels for Investors


    January 26, 2014 by Kathryn Kuttis

    towerEach year salary surveys name investor relations as the highest paid form of public relations. As a result, it is often cited as the most important sub-speciality of PR and the obvious finance nerd in the family.

    Well, one reason is that many people think they can’t do it.


If you share an interest in public relations, media and visual design, this might be a good place for you to hang out. I started this blog to exchange ideas with my students at the University of Oregon. They keep me (and maybe you too) at the forefront of social media, visual communication and career development. Here you'll find our best ideas, links and learning as we write, create and blog our way through a course on Strategic PR Communication.
