Histories and Theories of design – Griffith University

This first-year course critically examines design history and theory. Design history, in its traditional form, focuses on design movements, designers and the materiality of the design object and the ways in which it connects to production and consumption, integrated into circulated systems of meaning. The course distinguishes between the concepts and historical figures of the past to frame and inform the key themes influencing art and design theory, practice and culture today and in the future. The relation between design and its place in history, why the designer needs such knowledge and how they need to employ it in future practice will be examined.
