85505 Design Interventions: Making Theories



Every design embodies a theory about people, the world and the way people interact with products, environments and communications. This subject teaches how to develop well-constructed theories that can give new insights into situations and thereby develop more creative and more effective designs. Students are introduced to a range of current cultural theories including: visual culture – which focuses on the way the 'society of spectacle sees things'; and material culture – which focuses on the material things we depend upon and value by owning.
