DESN 114 Design Process, Theory and Communication

3 credits 90.0 hours
100 level undergraduate course

In this course, students explore the form and function of artifacts through the development of systems, services, organizations, and creative thinking processes. Coursework will initiate student application of design elements and principles, gestalt theory, and color theory and strengthen the ability to visually communicate concept, theme, emotion, and narrative. Through a combination of studio projects, exercises, workshops, and readings, students develop a common critical vocabulary for design thinking, making, and discourse. This course is structured to promote the interaction between design majors, encourage cross-disciplinary activity, and showcase professional possibilities in the Freshman Design Forum.

Priority enrollment to School of Design majors.
