Design Studio 4 serves to focus on issues related to communication design, framed as an exploration of a temporary exhibition. By understanding the basic principles of typographic, communication, and information design, a designer has the ability to create an effective system that informs by using visual, written, spatial arrangements, and other signals. This studio course builds on students’ abilities to solve graphic design problems in visual communications as developed in previous studios, and to increase the repertoire of design problems typically encountered in professional practice. The course focused on a single project: the design of a fictive temporary exhibition for the School of Art’s gallery.
