Art and Design
The value of introducing graphic design majors to the process of co-design, designing with stakeholders rather than for them, is essential to the education of today's graphic designer. Throughout the fall 2019 semester, graphic design majors in ART 343 Design for Print Media engaged three client-focused projects. Students developed design solutions with clients from Ascension/St. Vincent, Marian University’s Writing Center, and Computer Science students. Through practicing a co-design process, students learn to become design process guides or facilitators. Students also learn to leverage their expertise of design and research, and not to let their own ambitions or ideas drive the outcomes. While guiding stakeholders through the design process of ideation and development, students learn to develop and raise the fidelity of their ideas and ultimately, design products.
