This course provides an overview of topics and issues central to the Strategic Design and Management program, with an emphasis on the relationships between design, experience, and social and economic change. An intensive three-week course, it exposes students to the enormous variety of ways design functions in business contexts and helps them understand the roles designers play in creative industries through critical readings and discussions, case studies, guest lectures, field trips, and collaborative, practice-based projects. By means of research, prototyping, experimentation, self-reflection, and decision-making activities, students become resourceful practitioners and creative entrepreneurs. The intensive nature of the class results in a steep learning curve.
Learn about the process of designing and making, particularly the creation of objects using soft materials. A variety of construction methods are explored, from hand and machine sewing to knitting, crocheting, draping, and patternmaking. Drawing and sketching are introduced as an integral part of the design process, allowing students to develop concepts in two dimensions before they begin making. Transposing visual ideas from sketching to fabricating, 2D to 3D, students are free to explore the techniques of patternmaking or draping to create the structure for their designs. Students familiarize themselves with design process methods through the development of a design sketchbook documenting research, fabric development, sketch inspirations, and reflections. Projects may include but are not limited to clothing and accessories.
This course introduces students to various presentation methods that enable them to clearly communicate their ideas through 2D media and the development of a collection. Students explore the communicative power of images through visual media using a variety of drawing and digital techniques, with the goal of developing their own individual aesthetic. Engagement with observational drawing from the live fashion model, photography, digital image creation, and video helps bring students' design ideas to life. Students build skills in observation, expression of ideas, and visual organization as they create a personal blog or book. Field trips to designer studios and museums along with guest lectures by practicing professionals develop students’ knowledge of New York’s fashion industry.
This course is an immersive introduction to the fashion industry and the role of the merchandiser in a fashion apparel company. The course reviews merchandising principles and techniques used, including product development, planning, editing, sourcing, and decision making. Students also acquire a working vocabulary of industry terminology. The course offers a New York perspective: We explore the relationships between design, production, and marketing through an overview of the traditional New York Garment Center. We also examine the fashion incubators recently developed for area fashion designers and craftspeople.
Graphic design is the visual language of everyday life, used in everything from magazine ads to film titles to product packaging. In this course, students are introduced to the fundamentals of visual research, composition, typography, and the organization of information. A key goal for all students is learning to develop powerful concepts. Students address a series of design problems through concept-driven solutions that explore 2D and digital making. The role of typography in design is explored in depth, with an emphasis on the selection of the most appropriate typeface for each project. Students are introduced to digital tools, including the Adobe Creative Suite.
Students build on their graphic design experience by investigating real-world applications of communication design, with an emphasis on concept development as applied to problem solving. Through projects, students learn to employ narrative and storytelling methods and engage in design research, analysis, documentation, and implementation. Emphasis is placed on the relationship between creative and critical thinking skills and the designer’s role within the professional arena. Topics covered include creation of the elements of brand identity programs, such as logos, publications, advertisements, and websites. Students explore advanced techniques in the Adobe Creative Suite. By the end of the course, students will have learned to apply design principles and visual elements effectively to a wide variety of business identity and communication problems. Prerequisite: Graphic Design I or the equivalent and experience with Adobe Creative Suite.
This class explores the ever-expanding territory where illustration meets design. The hybrid designer-illustrator is head and shoulders above the pack, possessing drawing skills; a keen sense of color, typography, and layout; and an interest in doing it all. Today’s new breed of designer-illustrators are poised for long and varied careers. Guest speakers who exemplify these qualities present case studies; slide-show lectures provide inspiration; and practical assignments afford students opportunities to produce portfolio work. Assignments call for students to create packaging, objects, logos, animation boards, and advertising using a multidisciplinary approach.
The field of interior design is rapidly changing. Interior designers not only are responsible for aesthetic elements but are called upon to assess and understand a given site condition and create environments that inspire and support transformative human experience. In this course, faculty introduce students to the field of interior design through an institutional, commercial, or public studio project in New York City. Students engage in an iterative creative process that includes field observation and analysis, measuring, drawing, model making, and evaluating and selecting nontoxic materials. Students build technical skills and develop an understanding of scale, form, and spatial relationships that enables them to interpret the interior environment. Students divide their time between designing in the studio, learning to analyze and represent space, and taking field trips to relevant sites in New York City. Students leave the class with a better understanding of the interconnections between interior design, ecology, and human experience and the ability to critique and build upon cultural understanding of the field.
In this introductory course, students engage in hands-on exploration of object design. The product design process is explored through problem solving, integration of essential skills such as drawing and rendering, and iterative prototyping of three-dimensional forms. Students learn where and how design can be best applied. They work both individually and collaboratively in a studio environment to create prototypes for utilitarian products and a project book documenting their research and
New York’s urban landscapes offer inspiration as students develop their skills in documentary and fine art photography. Beginners master basic skills in analog and digital photography, while experienced students learn to convey ideas and explore themes in their work. The class includes on-site shoots, lab work, critiques, and lectures. All work is done in black and white. Students must have a 35mm camera with manual settings and a DSLR digital camera.
