Discussions will include the impact of stakeholders and the recipient in relation to the communication process, as well as the social and ethical responsibilities of designers to understand the impact of their design solutions. Students will be expected to conduct independent research to create individualistic design solutions for a cultural organization in a country or culture other than their own.
