W01 Design Studies 1: Communication Theory

DST60103 [Lecture] – Ms. Yip Jinchi – 29/3/2017

First class of design studies. We were given a brief over the module’s outline and given our first assignment. This module focuses mainly on the communication aspect of design and features quite a bit of written work, mostly pertaining to analyzing the message communicated by a piece of work; be it song, poem, poster or otherwise.


Assignement: Creating a piece of work from the a song

We received our first assignment today, due W04. We are given a song by Bob Dylan, Hard Rain’s A-Gonna Fall. We are to analyze the song, its motifs, context, meanings and themes and translate that into a piece of work. The piece of work could be in any kind of visual form, as long as it isn’t a poster.
