Here are some aspects of from his post, "Teaching Design," that will make me sane, and questions "what a book of progressive design curricula would look like." As in a previous post dealing with the MIT Digital Information Design Camp, I am want to ascertain if its possible for me to structure a proper method to exploring contemporary occult education. All I really did was switch around some of the words in the previous post, but it initially helped me with the concept.
- Using design research and problem solving methodology to address civic issues
- Designing visual tools for public participation
- Reading assumptions encoded in images, structures, and practices
- Design for community building and advocacy
- Using design to streamline civic processes
- Issues on sustainable design and responsible printing
- Methods of user testing
- Multi-lingual design
It would cover media including:
- Basic typography
- Information design
- Documentary or narrative design
- Posters, graffiti, and street art
- Transportation graphics and civic way finding
- Branding and communications design
- Design for multimedia
Social Design Notes goes on, "It would integrate principles of cost-effectiveness, accessibility and inclusiveness, usability, environmental sensitivity, and technologically appropriate solutions."
He makes a strong case that people are in dire need of this sort of curriculum, and so do a few other articles regarding the mediocre state of design grads being popped out.
Now I wonder if it's applicable to the structure of a proper occult curricula? I sometimes wish I were born more left-brained. I supposed I need to work on that… meditation and smart drugs?
