Dog biscuits won’t save the world

2005 Conference

In this paper I will advance the proposition that through the development of a personal design philosophy and a greater understanding of the cultural, social and political values of the community, we can foster far stronger and longer-lasting relationships between design education and professional practice. I will outline the curriculum approach, developed and explored through the graphic design studio at the Tasmanian School of Art, which in part, aligns student development with an understanding of design responsibility through a series of community design initiatives.
