In a semester-long project that spans planning, research, implementation and testing, students will experience the unfolding of the design process, with special attention given to the use of iteration and prototyping as a means to generate knowledge and/or innovative solutions. Students gain a theoretical as well as a practical understanding of how to organize and optimize the design process as well as the critical skills to reflect on the design process and its outcomes. The overall theme in this section is: Artisan Supply Chain - the underlying ecosystem of the artisan sector and how labor and sourcing from handworkers is mirroring the inequities of the gig economy and capitalism at large. A $700B+ sector, it’s a key asset to industries such as fast fashion yet is positioned as “ethical” and “doing good” for everyday consumers, while artisans continue to live in poverty and socially marginalized. Projects can range from the exploration of fair trade, transparency in business models, social impact marketing without poverty porn, and monetizing (and attempts to “preserve”) cultural heritage.

The overall theme in this section is: Social Impact and Nonprofit Organizations - how nonprofit missions translate the goals towards social impact for marginalized communities through design. Nonprofit companies that work with advocacy through public engagement will be provided as examples from Open Style Lab. Projects range from an exploration of the application of human-centered design, educational methods, fundraising challenges, and the transparency of disability issues that relate to new markets in adaptive fashion, assistive technology or medical industries. Projects will explore opportunities in strategies, communication messaging, and design processes that aim to raise awareness for societal stigmas surrounding disability.
