We are the Clemson TAGA chapter and are comprised of a unique group of students who are passionate about learning and being apart of the graphics industry. The Technical Association of Graphic Arts is an international organization of academics and industry researchers in the Graphic Communications field. Each year student chapters from around the world produce a journal showcasing student research in GC applications. We compete amongst other schools chapters for recognition of the quality of our journal. These journals are judged by the TAGA Board of Directors on the basis of technical writing, design and print production. We are involved in all aspects of the journal production—design, print production, writing and editing, and have the opportunity to attend the TAGA Annual Technical Conference each year.

President's Letter

Dear Reader and Fellow Graphic Arts Enthusiasts,

Thank you for taking the time to review our research. We know that there is a great deal of terrific material at the conference this year, as always. We are grateful that you are taking time to evaluate ours.

This is Clemson University’s eighth (???) straight year submitting our research to the organization. (Go Tigers!). We were mentored by Dr. Liam O’Hara once again and we are immensely indebted to him for all his advising and teaching.

In Clemson’s Graphic Communications program, students are united through their knowledge of print production and graphics. Through lectures and hands-on labs, we are able to emerge ourselves in both technical principles and physical print production. As valuable our shared experiences are, equally important are the factors of our program that allows us to set ourselves apart from one another and explore our interests. Research is one of these diversifying factors that allows students to independently explore a topic of interest.

I’m incredibly proud of this year’s TAGA team for all of their time and effort spent on planning, designing, and producing this journal. To be a part of such a hard-working and dedicated people has been an honor. Watching my peers take advantage of every opportunity the program has to offer has been truly exciting.

Lastly, we are proud to be part of the TAGA Conference again this year and to be supporting the advancement of knowledge in the Graphic Communications discipline as the industry continues to advance. We hope to learn as much from the other research submitted this year as we hope you will learn from ours.
