HISTORY OF THE INTERIOR: Assignment 3 – ESSAY (CATALOGUE)

Your mission is:

  • to produce an expertly designed catalogue that presents your topic’s essence or ‘DNA’ . Be sure to highlight the significance of your topic in the history of design. This is a kind of exhibition catalogue (without the actual exhibition).
  • So including lots of images is essential.
  • Throughout the catalogue you create a clear and engaging 1000 word academic essay that builds an evidence-based critical analysis of your topic, a well-informed, incisive inquiry that positions your selected topic within a broader context of geographical, social, political, material, technological and economic forces.
  • You are encouraged to be innovative, to create visual and tactile interest. Sound could be included.

Your Submission:

  • Via Turnitin

Essential:

  • ensure you appropriately reference all quotes and image sources – we cannot over emphasise this vital essential of academic integrity and credibility.
  • images – refer to all images from the body of the essay – what are you showing your reader?
  • In addition to working with appropriate references listed under your topic and in the Reading List, you are required to find at least ONE additional substantial and academically credible reference to inform your inquiry.

Format:

  • The format will depend on the nature of your topic – it should reflect the DNA of your topic (radical, conservative, highly designed, experimental, technology-based, political propaganda etc).
  • Format can be anything from a pdf of a small format booklet to a pdf of a large size poster.
  • Be creative with your layouts and page sizes.
  • Design: You are designers looking at the context of design – design is central to this Catalogue: it should be intelligently and beautifully designed.
  • Images: are the key to the DNA of the catalogue. Ensure you position these so as to clearly convey what they are, why they are there, authorship etc.
  • Edit: for precision, design intent (positioning and DNA), spelling, grammar, clarity and AVOID repetition.
  • Tip: The Situationists (Guy Debord), Archigram, the Bauhaus and others have produced interesting publications, posters, propaganda that may inspire you.

Unit Learning Outcomes: Marking Criteria are based on meeting the Unit Learning Outcomes.

ULO 3. Examine and deconstruct the evolution of key design practitioners’ methodologies and communication techniques ULO 4. Appraise contemporary local, regional and global design thinking and practice to anticipate future challenges and opportunities.

General Advice:

  • Tune in to your topic: find out about it.
  • Analyse the information – what is the story that is coming through?
  • Sort out: interpretations and perspectives, and what it is you consider your catalogue needs to say on this topic.
  • Use images diagrams and charts where appropriate to succinctly convert wordiness into visuals.
  • Communicate clearly in a manner that will engage your reader.
