What is Graphic Design?
Graphic design today is a field of practice with an expansive range of opportunities to apply one’s skills, talents, and interests. This fluid nature of the field makes self-awareness essential. Self-awareness allows preparedness for uncertainty, risk, unintended consequences, and surprise—all helpful since the design-process is not really formulaic. Furthermore, to respond to any design challenge begins with self-directed inquiry and questions, not answers, which in turn makes the design process a rich means for greater self-awareness. To prepare you for what lies ahead Unit #15 helps you map out your design interests and why.
