In Critical Design we use speculative design proposals to challenge narrow assumptions & preconceptions and givens about the role products play in everyday life.
We will explore how media has evolved and how this affects the media, the design of media, the producers and consumers of media and how this affects our behaviour.
Practice in examining our own socialization, self-image and motivation while gathering knowledge about own cultural baggage.
We learn how to use storytelling to create impact and connection. The power of story helps people to connect with the message in a deeper, more meaningful way.
Human Centered Design is a iteratively developing method. Together with Design Thinking we have applied it to the Design Challenge group project.
