Auburn University dean of the College of Architecture, Design and Construction wanted our school to explore offering design thinking courses to the university at large. These courses would be outside the industrial and graphic design majors course of study, and geared towards non-design students.
Two courses were developed, one focussing on physical product design, and the other on screen based digital products. I developed and teach the latter.
In order to promote these courses, I designed a poster for physical display around campus, and two animated gifs for use in emails to students and student advisors. The promotion centered on the idea of innovation through design thinking.
