Designers often overlook the vital role that writing can play in their careers. It can help them initiate new projects, forge partnerships, earn clients, and can serve as a creative outlet for their critical perspectives. Students in this course will develop both practical writings that can strategically support their design practices and original essays that they pitch to publishers. Throughout the semester, we will explore the cultural forces of design through writing, design processes to help develop ideas into articles or books, writing tools to run a design studio, and ways to work with editors and publishers. Visiting writers and publishers will join us to provide additional context throughout the semester.
