Design History II
This advanced course is a continuation of Design History I and will cover the history of design from WWII to the present. Although the focus will be on the study of visual communications in their historical contexts, other forms of design will be examined. Design discourse will focus on contemporary issues. Students will participate in discussions of critical texts and will be asked to write design criticism that incorporates a social and historical perspective. After completion of this course, students will have a greater understanding of how designers have shaped society.
