Graphic Design Abroad
Graphic Design Abroad is a three-week study tour. While this summer seminar course is primarily a study of graphic design, it is also a study of visual culture, as observed in the art, architecture and design of each city and site. Through a range of design studio visits, museums, workshops and projects, students will be exposed to the variations in philosophy and methods of design firms outside of the US. In addition to the office visits, students will study art and design in museums and historical sites, as well as conduct site-specific design research and projects, observing and documenting visual culture in a range of public spaces.
