Collab: Network Interfacing

Spring 2019

Taught By: Callil Capuozzo and Lukas Eigler-Harding

Section: F

CRN: 2828

Credits: 3

Networks and their interfaces dictate how we engage with the world around us. They determine what kind of information we have access to and develop preferences for, how and with whom we communicate, and what we believe. In this course, students will research, design, and develop a peer-to-peer network that allows for an intensive exploration of how interfaces filter our information, guide our social dynamics, and ultimately shape our perceptions and biases.

Musicians and designers share a variety of aspects in their creative process. We have similar methods and challenges, we try to be original and innovative, and we convey a message, feelings, or ideas. However, we use different languages and terminology that makes multi- disciplinary collaborations unnecessarily complex.
 This class is a collaboration between Parsons and The New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music, taught jointly by one faculty of each division and populated with a 50/50 student ratio from each school. It is designed to give students of both areas the appropriate tools to be able to understand and work with each other fluidly.

 The collaborative process is divided into three segments: 
 1 Intradisciplinary
 Method: Exploring the grammar of a single discipline
. Assignment: Design Studio & Music Workshop. Process: Students work individually and exchange experience, knowledge and methods in class. 
 2 Crossdisciplinary
 Method: Exploring one discipline through the perspective of another. Assignment: The Dictionary. 
 Process: Students work in groups combining expertise of both discipline. 3 Transdisciplinary
 Method: Exploring the synthesis of different disciplinary methods and integrating knowledge to achieve sophisticated applications. 
Assignment: The Final Pitch. 
Process: Students synthesize new knowledge in teams.

Open to: All University upper-level undergraduate degree students.

Collab: Design for Literacy

Spring 2019

Taught By: Marcos Chavez

Section: C

CRN: 2826

Credits: 3

This course is intended to integrate the design skills and point of view of students in order to create a product line of re-imagined classic books and market those products on behalf of a social enterprise in their efforts to raise money for a literacy charity. Students will work with the social enterprise, DERT, as contributing designers and will redesign select classic works of literature into marketable on-demand books that are activated as fundraising products. The class will work with DERT to re-design adult and kids classics which will target select audiences who’s interested in making meaningful purchases that both enhance their lives while making contributing to a social cause. DERT will donate all profits from its books sales to its literacy partner, The Parent-Child Home Program (PCHP). With over 50 years of proven success, PCHP is dedicated to ensuring that low-income children have access to books, and has the opportunity to enter school ready for success. DERT will work with PCHP and its sponsor, The Reader’s Digest Foundation, to market the book products to its various audiences. Team members from PCHP and Reader’s Digest will be active in the classes development of their book products, participating in class presentations and critique reviews. Beyond students work in designing book products, the class will focus on research, process, concepting, design execution, teamwork and presentation skills.Although not required, a space for an end of class exhibit would be an added benefit to the class.

Section: D

CRN: 2827

Credits: 3

This project-based course is intended to combine real-world client experience re-imagining the branding for all components of the Five Borough Bicycle Club, New York’s friendliest bike club. With the goal of increasing The 5BBC’s awareness and participation, students will create a full branding strategy starting with an audit of the biking sector and outdoor trends, marketing and new media recommendations, as well as complete brand design and guidelines: redesigning The 5BBC’s logo, its website's look, functionality and content, advertising and other experiential components of the brand, including creation of a signature event. Students will work with 5BBC board and club members, and NYC cyclists and community advocates to extend 5BBC’s reach and communicate its purpose of creating an inclusive community of friends where everyone can find a place as a cyclist. The course will include client interaction through research and critiques, as well as class focus on strategy, process, concepting, design execution, collaboration and presentation skills.

Spring 2019

Taught By: Andrew Shurtz

Section: E

CRN: 4659

Credits: 3

This course is specifically designed to bring together two types of students: 1) those who have a background in critical reading and writing but no extensive experience in design and 2) those who have a background in design but no extensive experience in writing and publishing. We will begin with a critical survey of the transmission of written communication from Gutenberg to the present to get up to speed, and in the second half of the semester we will discuss contemporary issues that cross design and publishing through an analysis of contemporary books, magazines, and periodicals across both printed and digital platforms, with a particular focus on the relationship between form and content. The seminar will be the underpinning of a hands-on studio course, where students will get a working introduction to typography, image, layout, sequence, and order, with the aim to design and publish in interdisciplinary teams, both printed and digital, by the end of the semester.

In this course, students will explore ways in which the communication and interaction design disciplines can make meaningful improvements to the experience of using New York City's subway system. Students will use research to inform project proposals, which could range from wayfinding to mobile apps to communication materials to interventions that simply make the experience of riding the subway more enjoyable.
