This class is conducted like a small studio which undertakes real-world design projects for Parsons and The New School. Students are admitted based on a portfolio review and a statement of purpose. Preference is given to design work that exhibits strong typographic approaches, together with critical concepts and content. On a selective basis, the instructor might conduct an interview to gauge a student’s interest and skill level. Under the creative direction of Lucille Tenazas, Henry Wolf Professor of Communication Design, students will work independently as well as collaboratively in a laboratory environment to explore print and digital projects, as well as emergent platforms for publication and distribution. Students will have the opportunity to develop experimental approaches to design and present them to clients and offices within The New School.
