Teaching Graphic Design: Approaches, Insights, the Role of Listening
How does one teach design? Why is listening so important? What can we learn from other disciplines and cultures, and from each other?
Answers to these and other questions are offered by design educator Sven Ingmar Thies and his 24 interviewees, who are all united by a single wish: that their students should experiment, experience, and grow as designers.
This book allows teachers of graphic design, design theory, game development, industrial design, and behavioral research from China, Germany, Great Britain, Japan, Austria, and the USA to each have their say.
The in-depth conversations are complemented by a comprehensive reflection and sample assignments. This is a book for teachers and students alike that offers insights into the experiences of others, as well as inspiration for teaching, learning, and professional practice.
Includes interviews with Fritz Frenkler, Gesche Joost, Brigitte Hartwig, Katsuya Kato, LeeAnn Renninger, Ichiro Saga, Mathilde Scholz, Rathna Ramanathan, Stefan Sagmeister, Kashiwa Sato, Erik Spiekermann, and others
