Design Writing

Fall 2019

Taught By: Andrew Shea

Section: A

CRN: 7583

Credits: 3

Designers often overlook the value that writing can add to their practice. Writing reviews, critiques, interviews, and essays can deepen their understanding of design while positioning them to be part of a larger conversation. Students in this course will develop writing that engages the public about design’s enduring presence and impact in our world. Readings, lectures, and guests will provide context for design writing, while student participation in exercises and assignments will help them experience the process of writing as another way to think. Students will form a community of design writers and storytellers who develop and express their critical perspectives on a range of design issues.
