This advanced design course serves 8 – 12 senior and graduate students from visual arts and architecture programs. The students adopted a user-centric approach by creating mobile and web apps that followed an iterated process of understanding, ideating, deciding, prototyping, and testing. In the end, they learned a design-thinking-based approach that can help them solve real-world problems.
This is an introductory-level course for art and graphic design students that introduces applications within the Adobe Creative Cloud including Photoshop, Illustrator, After Effects, and Premier Pro. Additional topics include inkjet and 3D printing, scanning, laser cutting, establishing an online design/art portfolio.
In this seminar, the students conceptualize, design, and create a virtual museum – the Museum of the Moment. Each group of students developed a conceptual design that connects people in different geological locations or times. I worked with Professor Michael Strand to create the course plan and assignment. During the semester, I instructed the students on graphic and UI/UX design, and helped them finish the published programs.
