MSOCDES - Social Design


Course Description

Social Design is a course that offers a window to the world.  Students are tasked to identify social problems, propose solutions, and create up a visual design project that best answers the identified problem. Graphic Design is continually evolving as a practice and as a discipline, and this course aims to keep the students at par, if not on the vanguard, of the practice. Design authorship and social design will be discussed and explorations of its application by the student encouraged. The role of intuition and improvisation in design will be thoroughly discussed. This course also reinforces knowledge of the various design and communication theories learned by the student in FSTHEOR3, MMINTRO, and MMCOMTH by applying these theories to real-world projects.  The course will combine all that the student has learned in the past MGRAPH subjects, as well as other multimedia courses, into a final project that underlines the value of visual communication in the world today.
