Telesis is the OU College of Architecture’s student publication. It was created in the 1970’s and only lasted a few years before being phased out. It is the college’s mission to restart this journal present day and make it relevant for students, faculty, and alumni while still maintaining the charm and originality of the original publications. With a co-editing team of six students, our first task was to rebrand the journal and create a logo. Then we established a manifesto of sorts and after heavy discussion, decided upon a theme for this year’s issue. We then distributed a call for submission to generate content as well as creating content ourselves. In the succeeding images you will see my interpretation of the theme.
From the call for submission: “The Gibbs College of Architecture wants to celebrate its vibrant roots by reviving The Student Journal Telesis as a means by which the student community can share its thoughts about the past, present and future of architecture, design, and “the current juice”. The College will join its aspirational peers who have already established student-led journals. This call for submission is meant to re-establish Telesis at OU searching for contributions on a selected topic: Design Against”
