ART 3420 Information Design

3 Hours

Prerequisites: ART 3410  or approval from the professor for design minors.

The course will emphasize the communication of ideas within the framework of Information Design, which seeks to edify more than to persuade. Students will examine how people read and learn information, and navigate through a space- a book, the web, or a physical space. Problems will be complex and multi-faceted such as a redesign of an identity system, navigational system, and informational signage for hypothetical clients. Students will be introduced to the study of semiotics as well as a brief historical perspective of information and environmental design fields. Emphasis will be on research with groups and individual work. Extensive outside work will be expected. The stage of design requires passing portfolio review. This course is only offered in the spring term. $100.00 course fee.
