This studio course builds on the skills and concepts of the 200-level Graphic Design classes. VIS 415 is structured around one semester-length assignment which connects graphic design to the process of visual research. The single project allows an individual in-depth investigation of a broader class assignment, leveraging online platforms with students working together to refine their individual projects through a mix of critique and instruction. Studio work is supplemented by guests, readings, and lectures. The course will explore design research in its many forms by doing it.
