Define Your Discipline


In collaboration with graphic design students at the University of Kingston.

'Define Your Dipscipline' addressed how a developed understanding of your discipline can alter or impact the work you produce and how this can shape the industry you enter into.

We analysed the relative merits of design courses and curriculums; the use of competition briefs, personal projects, collaboration and Adobe suite.

Can current course models embrace the diverse skillset evident within design graduates to support them entering into a wide range of careers? Is it possible for students to shape their own courses, pushing the discipline instead of conforming to it? 

On our panel:
— Eleanor Vonne Brown, X Marks the Bokship
— Luke Tudor Griffiths, designer
— Jack Llewellyn, Brody Associates
— Andy Haslam, Associate Head of School of Graphic Design at Kingston University

Is there a risk of doing too much thinking and not enough work? #defineyourdiscipline
