DESOB 3004 Design Storytelling
Fridays 9am-4pm (3 credits)
Jan 25, 2018 to May 13, 2018
Faculty: Ilona Gaynor

Storytelling is the way in which we communicate regardless of time or space, and is both a social and cultural activity. Stories and narratives have been shared in entertainment, education, politics, as a means of cultural preservation, both instilling and undoing moral values. In the realm of design, stories can be the means with which the design of objects, space and images are layered to articulate context and meaning. This studio introduces various techniques that will allow the articulation of ideas to be foregrounded. A comprehensive reading list of literature and film texts will be read and screened throughout the class alongside studio practice. Students will progress from research methods, 2D sketching and mapping, to exploring the use of physical models and time-based media; such as film and animation.

Note: This course has been redesigned and re-categorized from a 1000 to a 3000 level course. If you took Design Storytelling at 1000 level, you may be interested in taking this higher level version as the content will be different.
