IDESN 3750 Junior Design Studio

Advanced studio course required for all Graphic Design and Interactive Design majors. Students investigate an "epic problem" (a complex situation without a predetermined design product as an outcome). Working in teams, they focus on both strategy and implementation-first understanding potential opportunities for improving the situation; then framing specific project goals; and finally developing and prototyping design solutions. Project outcomes include fully articulated team presentations, as well as polished prototypes or simulations that address the problems being solved.
