About Networked Design Talks:
The rise of the Internet over the past few decades has led to the growth of networked culture. The effects of this phenomenon extend far beyond the use of tools: It has changed how people communicate and how they manage, construct, and perceive individual and group identities. This cultural shift requires the creative industry to reexamine its use of messages, symbols, and aesthetics and to study their function within a constantly changing networked environment. The Networked Design Talks represent the first step of an academic research initiative in this area undertaken by Parsons AAS Graphic Design faculty members and led by the Graphic Design program’s director, Katarzyna Gruda.
