Description

Designers need to communicate with funders, suppliers, logisticians, craftspeople, marketers and users. In addition to portfolio work, designers benefit from supplementing their practice with rhetorical skills that assist in offering direct and distinctive accounts of their concerns and abilities. An understanding of design history and key design concepts enables them to make more convincing arguments for their work. Through familiarity with a repertoire of key historical examples, students build the foundations on which to confidently describe and distinguish the emerging ideas in their own design practice.
