About Mr. McGehee

I grew up in the small town of Durant, Oklahoma and went to college at the University of North Texas in Denton, TX.  While at UNT, I received two bachelor's degrees: one in Radio, TV & Film Studies and one in History.  After moving to Bellingham in 2006, I attended Western Washington University in order to get my teaching certification.  I taught History and technology classes at high schools in Bellingham from spring 2010 to June 2012.  In the fall of 2012, I was happy to find what I consider to be a dream job here at MMS teaching digital art classes.  I enjoy the thrill of teaching classes that always change with the latest techniques and technology.

Aside from education, I have over 10 years of experience in graphic design, photography and the digital printing industry.  Living in Mount Vernon with my family, I enjoy cooking; looking for new music to listen to; listening to news podcasts and reading technology and design blogs.

Rundown: Week Ending 1/16/15

2nd period Design Team

This was a pretty big week for 2nd period Design. We kicked off the week with a 1-day design challenge that asked students to design a logo for a new athletic shoe company.  While the work was quick, some of the results really showed off that these students know how to design for a particular audience.

Students also progressed in their chocolate bar designs. A few even made it to the prototyping phase and began wrapping bars. Tweaks and changes followed, leading to some really great results!

We finished the week by working on our airline project.  This week, our teams met with our client teams in Mr. Schmitt's Applied Math class to go over what their airline companies want to see in a look for the paint designs of their jets. Our teams will design a logo and entire exterior paint job of the plane and mock up a final design. 

 5th and 6th period Graphic Design

5th and 6th period classes put their single color photo collages to use by creating full color wheels from the individual color files. The results are awesome!
