About the Course:
“Design for Relief and Aid” aims to define the role of graphic design within crisis and disaster situations while providing students with a glimpse of the many challenges and rewards brought on by future practice.
While observing other political and environmental crises at local, national and global levels, this studio seeks out relevant contexts as well as impacted people, their needs, goals and expectations. In so doing, we will break through disciplinary boundaries and break down assumptions as to a much-needed contribution, value and impact of design for relief and aid.
