Creative & Scholarly: Design Projects : Web Presence + Graphic Design

Web has shifted to Social Media design and running campaigns, I have learned how to develop my own online presence in the the design and Concept art markets so that I can share methods with my students.

Professional Online Presence:

I added my artwork to the main social media online galleries and communities for my genre starting in 2015. I gathered information for students including pros and cons of each site and how to access job postings and contests.

I collaborated with Bill Fischer to create the Online Presence Guide used in the Professional Practices Courses to guide students how to find their mainstream and niche markets to reach out to the international community of artists and designers and all of the job postings and forums that are available once they have created the required online presence.

SusanBonner.com is a personal website that shows my professional portfolio, my student examples and CV.

I used this site to apply for the Tenure Track Position at KCAD in DM which I was appointed in 2016.
