This class will examine the development of commercial art to graphic design utilizing a variety of readings of history, theory and criticism, lectures, video content, examinations of historical physical ephemera, and in-class discussions. The course will provide students with a working understanding of Japanese graphic design history across typography. Students will participate in field trips that will supplement their developing understanding of history by seeing how past aesthetics influence the contemporary moment, as well as examining historical design work. The course is designed to enhance students’ visual vocabularies, as well as examine methodological underpinnings of design, the development of visual styles of form-making, typography, the emergence of modernism in Japan, and to provide a sense of contemporary aesthetics as an accretive culmination of cultural development. Students will examine the roles that graphic designers have played in history, as well as examining notions of design authorship, exploring design writing, giving brief presentations on historical Japanese designers based on personal research, and being introduced to foreign designers and socioeconomic forces which helped to mold Japanese design as a sector of cultural production.
