Course Description

“Origins & Issues in Design” surveys the history of design from the time of Gutenberg through contemporary practice, discussing the interrelationships between graphic, industrial, interior, and architectural design. While this course examines the work of various individuals and design movements considering their place in history, an emphasis is placed on discussing the underlying principles and available technologies in relationship to each particular design movement. This course will help students develop a working knowledge of past and contemporary designers who creatively responded to the needs and challenges of their time. Lectures, readings, and writing assignments will enable students to construct their own critical perspective on the designers, artifacts, and movements covered. This course is designated WI (Writing Intensive).
