My second option for CTS this turn was Critical Graphic Design Theories. In the first lesson we were given a broad overview about what to expect on this topic.
- Provides a base knowledge and understanding of the topic
- Enables one to look for patterns in the world of design
- Helps with organisational structures of projects and organising your work
- It also answers and creates new questions
At the end of this course we are expected to write a manifesto ourselves, discussing a specialised graphic design theory. We got to chose 6 from 20 different subtopics on what we want to learn in this term and the most popular choices will be dealt with.
Here’s a quick SWOT analysis of this course:
Strength: To focus on specific design theories and rules
Weakness: The fact that we need to use WordPress to prove our weekly process (I don’t get along with wordpress)
Opportunity: To connect theories to current projects that I am dealing with
Threats: There is a high workload and high expectations to be met
