The Louisiana Tech School of Design is pleased to announce the opening reception and thesis talk for our 2022 Winter Quarter graduating MFA candidates. This exhibition and thesis presentation is presented in partial fulfillment of requirements for completion of the Masters of Fine Arts Degree in Graphic Design.

The 2022 Thesis Exhibition “Communicating Through Multi-Sensory Loss” will feature work by Masters of Fine Art candidate Pankita Patel. In her thesis research, Patel aims to improve communication between people who are blind, deaf, mute and any combination of these three. Patel designed a product known as Dot Dot which consists of a tactile keypad and a tactile Braille display. Dot Dot can receive and send messages to all types of phones. It can convert any translation of voice, text, and Braille interchangeably. The different modes of Dot Dot will allow differently disabled people to communicate by sending and receiving the message as per their ability and desire.
