|Class Title||Fresh Graphics: Complexity Made Simple|
Continuing a design logic set forth almost a century ago by Otto and Marie Neurath, pioneers of the Isotype and visual education, this course will marshal the forces of intelligent graphic production as a means for communicating complicated ideas about architecture and design, while engaging children as a discerning test audience.
The course will be organized as a simultaneous research seminar and design workshop. Throughout the semester, students will investigate not only book and communication design aimed at children (to include but not be limited to the Neurathsâ€™ Visual History of Mankind, the Bloomsbury Group, Walter Benjaminâ€™s radio broadcasts for children, and Green Eggs and Ham, a book written on a dare), but also relevant architectural ideas, concepts, designs, history, and architects. Each student will write and illustrate a set of books and other materials, and will test and share them with different audiences of children.
