Graphic design and writing are the essence of communication – words make thoughts tangible, and design gives them form. Both disciplines provide a vocabulary to evaluate what makes something “good” and the ability to expand that definition. A commitment to asking questions that encourage students to reflect on their biases and form opinions define my teaching philosophy. For example: What are we looking at? Why are we looking at it? Why do you care? What does it look like? Why?
