A Designer's Critical Alphabet
By Lesley-Ann Noel, Ph.D.
A deck of cards designed to introduce designers and design students to critical theory and help them reflect on their design process.
Each card in this conceptual rainbow introduces theory under an initial letter. The cards then introduce a question or comment, making a connection to theory and design practice.
The deck is by no means a complete critical alphabet, but rather an introduction to concepts that a designer can reflect on while working. The deck should also be considered an invitation to create your own list of important critical theory concepts.
27 cards, 2.56 × 2.56 inches
In plastic carrying case, 3 × 3 inches
