ART121 JT - Critical Design Studio

When Offered: Spring 2019.
Instructor(s): M. Allen
Credit: 1

Visual media is ubiquitous in our lives as a source of influence and pleasure, argumentation and control. It tells us what to buy, what to believe, and organizes societies in ways both beneficial and malignant. Critical Design Studio invites participants to consider how visual texts establish how information is understood, facts are revealed (or hidden), and how design, illustration, typography, and color impact how we perceive the world. In this hands-on studio class students will deconstruct, reconfigure, and critically analyze the methods of visual communication. An emphasis will be placed on the ability to use design to create forms which persuade, explain, make a claim, and invite the reader into a dialogue. Prerequisites: ART 021 PO  or equivalent. Letter grade only.
