E722: Stories in 2D: Sketching & Design Thinking in Rainstorm Spring 2021 (May. 15 - 16, 2021)
The stories you tell through sketching help convey your ideas to a broader audience. The way you draw out your thoughts can vary dramatically based on your audience. An engineering meeting requires a different form of communication compared to, say, a brainstorm with your family. We cover some basic theory of design thinking and sketching. Then we will guide students through an iterative design process, so students can communicate their ideas confidently to a variety of audiences.

E725: The products we live with: a brief history of industrial design in Rainstorm Spring 2021 (May. 15 - 16, 2021)
The products that surround us, particularly those that have real utility and beauty, draw upon a long history of industrial design. We will dive into the design style that characterized cities and homes through the generations. We’ll start with products from the Industrial Revolution (1760-1840) and end with the trends like Blobism and Deconstructionism. Practically, we’ll see how Apple Inc. has made use of blobism and neofunctionalist industrial design for products like their iPhone and HomePod. We’ll zoom out and see how the history of industrial design informs so much of the world designed for and by us. This class will take a presentation form with frequent breaks for interactive brainstorming, filling out a Zoom virtual whiteboard, and sketching.
