GD MFA students and faculty have published a series of books about design in partnership with Princeton Architectural Press. The fourth title in the series, Graphic Design Thinking, will be released in Spring 2011. It was written, designed, and produced by GD MFA students enrolled in the Publishing Workshop course in Spring 2010. A team of GD MFA students was commissioned to complete the project over the summer of 2010, fine-tuning the layouts and typographic system and preparing final edits for publication.
The book is a compilation of techniques for defining problems, getting ideas, and creating forms. The visual examples consist largely of work created by GD MFA students. Graphic Design Thinking explores a variety of design processes and shows the rich range of inquiry taking place among MICA’s GD MFA students, who are working in such areas as social design, environmental graphics, systems design, branding, typography, and logo and icon development.
