Graphic, Data and Digital Design
Dialogue is a multi-dimensional, dynamic and context-dependent process of creating meaning; an educational interface between the user and curator.
This studio offers illustrators, graphic designers and publishers a series of exciting practical briefs and studio partners that will collectively explore the interface between the designer and culture, between analogue and digital approaches, user and experience.
In the modern world's complex and unstable climate, dialogue is crucial to help heal splits and divisions, promote understanding and encourage an inclusive culture within design and between disciplines in order to help secure the future. As artists, designers, performers and writers, you are uniquely placed to help articulate and facilitate this dialogue – to visualise, interpret, disseminate and communicate, through the use of screen, print, film and social media content. A dialogue where contributions are considered according to the validity of their reasoning, instead of according to the status, race, gender, position of power of those who make them.
As a person or citizen you also need to understand your own position clearly in order to help shape this dialogue with others; to develop a series of visual dialogues that prevent ambivalence; to understand judgement, choice and experience, psychologically and linguistically a series of chosen and given mediums.
Persona: dialogue with the self/the map of me – user understanding and experience
You will thoroughly examine yourself through individual and group workshops in order to create "a map of yourself" using analogue, digital, motion and print. A narrative process will then be used to visualise these outcomes via a user-centered app prototype.
Experiential design: data visualisation/user understanding and experience
Using a supplied or a chosen set of data streams and/or information as base material, you will explore innovative ways of visualising dialogue on a variety of subjects, particularly the representation of gender, culture and ethnicity in the design industry amongst other key trends and topics.
Design geometry: image/text/sound – studio portfolio
Your final project will require you to have a conversation with present and future peers, collaborators, employers and users. You will produce a portfolio that clearly presents your best work ready for The Cass Summer Show, portfolio surgeries and employment.
