Des 302U Design is Everywhere

Explores the work of designers and their work in every part of our lives, often invisibly. Shows how designers identify problems, engage with audiences to discover their needs, and craft appropriate solutions by exploring how design thinking strategies can be applied to real-world scenarios through collaborative, project-based experimentation, readings offering perspectives on designers and design topics, and critiques of design solutions. Course is open to all students, but Graphic Design majors cannot take this course for cluster credit.
