SUMMER 2017: LONDON BY DESIGN WITH PROFESSORS REGINA GARDNER MILAN AND INGRID HESS
In the course London by Design, students enjoyed 10 full days exploring and studying in London. Daily activities comprised visiting museums, including The Design Museum, the British museum, Kew Gardens, The V&A, The Natural History Museum, the National Gallery, and many more. Students also participated in a two-day Hackathon, run by the London agencies the Big Radical and The XDs (The Experience Design Group). With this design challenge, students addressed the growing problem of depression in young adults. The event attracted a wide variety of professionals in the design and healthcare sectors from disciplines including psychology, AI, UX, pharmacology, visual and game design.
Projects included a travel brochure and poster, a way finding system, a hand-built book about London typography and daily blogs.
