When it comes to the design profession, there's a long and complicated history of "trendy" and "disruptive" design.But a new survey of more than 1,000 designers has found that a lot of the current focus on the latter is actually misguided, and the former is the wrong direction."It's easy to think about design as something that only needs to be used in the context of your brand," says Jason Luscomb...
The Jerusalem Hebrew newspaper Haaretz reported on Wednesday that the course of graphic design course at the Hebrew University will be offered as an elective for students this fall.
The course is the first of its kind for graphic designers and students who want to pursue graphic design in a modern context.
It will be taught by Dr. Dov Lior and his students, and will take place in the new Faculty of Arts, where it is being organized by Prof. Shlomo Herzog, who is also a faculty member of the Institute of Visual Arts.
It was created to provide a comprehensive understanding of the field, Lior said.
“The course was created as an opportunity for students to learn how to think about visual design in the context of a global context, from a technological perspective, from an architectural and industrial perspective, and from an artistic perspective,” he said.
Lior added that the class is aimed at students who are interested in drawing, painting, graphic design and related disciplines and who have the desire to pursue the fields in the near future.
“It will allow them to pursue their career goals in graphic design,” he told The Associated Press.
“I want to ensure that we do not lose students to other fields and we give them a chance to explore the field.”
According to Herzog and Lior, the course will be conducted by a faculty that has a strong history of working with graphic designers, with several graphic designers serving on its faculty.
The students will take the course for two years, and then the course could be extended.
