This course focuses on communication design practice and its role in promoting sustainability. Students are introduced to ways in which design solutions can engage “strategies, processes and materials that value environmental, cultural, social and economic responsibility” (GDC Sustainable Design Principles, 2009). Projects emphasize collaboration, the discovery process, and the development of platform-neutral solutions. Instruction in design-related software supports the course.
IDES 244 is an approved Self and Society course for Cap Core requirements.
