Upcoming workshop for graphic design juniors and sophomores!

Sub-culture & audience-centered design research: a workshop with Professor Katherine McCoy

During this special intensive workshop with selected sophomore and junior students, you will learn a unique methodology for audience-centered design research and apply it in a hands-on project. Teams will collaboratively research and design, while working under the specialized tutelage of Professor Katherine McCoy. The end result is a poster and presentation summarizing your findings.

To apply, email Jamie by 3pm on 4/29. Write a brief proposal on two possible local subcultures that you would be interested in researching, and describe the need/opportunity for understanding each community's unique communication characteristics. Your proposed subcultures need to be be readily accessed for research in the short workshop time period.

The workshop is May 12th & 14th from 8:00-2:30 during normal studio-time (plus any work-time on your own).
