The show “Graphic Design: Now in Production” explores some of the most vibrant and critical contemporary graphic design work being produced today.
In this unit we were asked to do intensive research around themes and issues raised by the show about the state of graphic design in 2014. We were asked to take a critical stance for or against an aspect of the show, a particular work or collection of works in the show, its curation and/or its presentation in the space of the museum.
Then, we had to design a finished work that allows someone else to experience your stance on the show. From a printed informational hand-out, to an audio guide, to a wayfinding system — this assignment’s final deliverable was deliberately left open for students to explore research-driven, ground-up design.
