Requisite(s): 87632 VC Design Studio: The Ethics of Image and Text



This subject explores visual communication design in the context of complex informational and technological systems. Students design interactions within these systems that are a response to what they observe in the world through basic design research methods. Through these research methods, students identify and frame relationships among people, environments, and technology and use their findings to drive the production of novel design outcomes.

ln response to a brief, students develop design concepts focused on interactive or responsive applications, objects or environments. lnitially, students are introduced to ways of developing, communicating, and presenting their ideas using visual techniques. This is combined with the delivery of introductions to digital technologies in order to develop students material understanding and their ability to produce prototypes.

Students are then guided through a process of selecting appropriate technical media and prototyping methods to develop an interactive prototype through which they can test, iterate and refine their designs.
