DES-351 Service and Research Design

Service and Research Design examines critical approaches pertinent to the profession of design today through research in order to produce relevant and meaningful visual communications solutions. Through specific service oriented assignments, design students will learn how to harness value in their design solutions by applying investigative processes, formulations, and tactic based strategies. Students will learn how to obtain hard qualitative and quantitative data through a series of research based methods. Working collaboratively, students will implement theory into action, which informs individual design practice thereafter. Much time will be spent in deep analysis over research texts supplemented by follow up discussion, defining of terms, and group dialogue. Prerequisites: DES-301 and DES-302.
