This introductory course familiarizes students with the knowledge base and skills needed for the effective creation of human artifacts. With an emphasis on concept development in the design of everyday objects, students are encouraged to create new product typologies in the context of human needs. They will explore the complex issues involved in contemporary industrial design and the changing nature of the processes used for meeting particular human or social needs, as well as specific functional or market requirements. The course introduces students to semantic and symbolic aspects of industrial design through developmental studies that express the functional and cultural meanings of products.
Notes: This is a core Industrial Design course. Students must achieve a minimum grade of 60% in this course to advance to INDS 2B14: ID Studio 1: The Design of Everyday Things.
