3d Printing – An Insider’S Perspective, Siddharth Sah Dec 2017

3d Printing – An Insider’S Perspective, Siddharth Sah

The STEAM Journal

The 3D printing market globally is still at its infancy, - or some might argue that there isn’t really a market yet. The knowledge of 3D printing design is still largely limited to engineering design – not product design. At MakeWhale, we are constantly pushing the boundaries of the application of 3D printing technology to consumer products resulting in a beautiful mix of technology and art.

The Learning Home: An Ethnographic Case-Study Of Curriculum, Place, And Design, Asavari Thatte Aug 2017

The Learning Home: An Ethnographic Case-Study Of Curriculum, Place, And Design, Asavari Thatte

Marilyn Zurmuehlen Working Papers in Art Education

An overemphasis on exams or tests marks the present educational scenario in India (Majumdar & Mooij, 2011; Mehrotra, 2007) and the United States (Eisner, 2002; Noddings, 2003; Pinar, 2004; Schubert, 2010). The mainstream schooling system in India disregards the student’s individual needs, abilities, and lived realities (Sarangapani, 2003; Thapan, 2015). My experience of schooling in a mainstream school in India was marked by a sense of monotony, boredom, disengagement, and drudgery. The search for a pedagogical site where the students’ experiences differ from mine motivates this research.

The Learning Home, an alternative school in Pune, India, is a pedagogical site where every ...


Statefulness And Tangible Interaction In Design Education, Alex Lobos, Tim J. Wood Aug 2017

Statefulness And Tangible Interaction In Design Education, Alex Lobos, Tim J. Wood

Presentations and other scholarship

Interaction in Industrial Design is expanding from tangible realms to intangible digital experiences. In this new environment, Interaction Design provides logical sequences and behaviors that allow users to easily navigate through complex workflows. This paper discusses a framework in which interaction design provides an innovative approach to traditional industrial design. This includes the concept of ‘statefulness’, where the dynamic changes of complex systems are broken down into states that can be defined and manipulated in order to achieve a desired user experience. This framework goes beyond having physical components of a product control digital interfaces and develops experiences that jump ...


Typography And The Evolution Of Hebrew Alphabetic Script: Writing Method Of The Sofer, Shayna Tova Blum Aug 2017

Typography And The Evolution Of Hebrew Alphabetic Script: Writing Method Of The Sofer, Shayna Tova Blum

Faculty and Staff Publications

Typography is the study of language letterforms, phonographic alphabetic characters that, when combined with additional characters, form words and/or sentences to express an idea and communicate a message to an audience. The history of typographic design dates back to early civilization and the invention of alphabetic writing systems, formulated and processed through the literary skills of the Hebrew Scribe Ezra whose knowledge and practice offered a significant contribution within a predominantly oral society. By examining the history of Hebrew typography through the discourse of biblical writing systems and alphabetic design, the article addresses the development of Hebrew scripts evolving ...


Dance Disability And Assistive Technology.Pdf, Merry L. Morris Jul 2017

Dance Disability And Assistive Technology.Pdf, Merry L. Morris

Merry L. Morris

This dissertation explores the catalytic relationships between dance, disability, and assistive technology design, foregrounding the ways in which dance practice/theory can provoke a re-imagination of both disability and the assistive device design. The research delves into the ways in which dance practice is ideally situated to continue intervening in negative constructions of disability by intentionally provoking current signifiers which reify the disabled body as dependent, restricted, tragic, static, and powerless. Specifically, I investigate one powerful signifier: the assistive device (e.g., wheelchair, crutch, prosthetic). I seek a critical endeavor into how disability perceptions may be transformed through dance by ...


Chapter Vi A Prototype Intervention- Towards An Embodied Socio-Spatial Design Paradigm.Docx, Merry L. Morris Jul 2017

Chapter Vi A Prototype Intervention- Towards An Embodied Socio-Spatial Design Paradigm.Docx, Merry L. Morris

Merry L. Morris

This chapter is an excerpt from my published dissertation. In the chapter, I propose a new paradigm for thinking about design: Embodied, Socio-Spatial Design (ESD) generated from a dance perspective. I use a Laban Movement Analysis framework to help flesh out this paradigm and I use these ideas to discuss and analyze a unique prototype wheelchair design for use in dance, with application outside of dance as well.


Chapter V Dance And Disability Meet Assistive Technology.Docx, Merry L. Morris Jul 2017

Chapter V Dance And Disability Meet Assistive Technology.Docx, Merry L. Morris

Merry L. Morris

This is an excerpted chapter from my published dissertation. In the chapter, I discuss the ways in which the dance context in intersection with disabled bodies revises notions of assistive technology design. By looking at what dancers and choreographers working within the disability community are doing (or attempting to do) with the assistive device, and foregrounding the agency of the device, as another “body,” new conceptions for what the device can enable rise to the surface. The words of “partnership,” “bodily extension,” and “helper,” were all themes which surfaced in my research defining the device relationship. From a dance lens ...

Design Plan For The Sawmill Town History Wing At The Texas Forestry Museum, Kendall D. Gay

Electronic Theses and Dissertations

The Texas Forestry Museum in Lufkin, Texas is the only forestry museum in the state. It preserves artifacts and educates visitors about Texas’ forest industry history. The museum has a Sawmill Town History Wing that is outdated and in need of a refreshing exhibit design based on current best practices. Using a previous museum audit as a guide, the new exhibit will have better flow, panel aesthetics, content, and interactive elements. By creating a new exhibit, the museum is better able to educate and entertain the visitors about Texas’ forest industry history.


Trends Within Craft Beer Packaging, Aurelia See Jun 2017

Trends Within Craft Beer Packaging, Aurelia See

Graphic Communication

While the print industry is facing a changing atmosphere, one thing is as sure as death and taxes— there will always be a market for print within the packaging industry. There is a growing market within the craft beer industry, and with that comes competition for each brewery. Many breweries are finding it difficult to use their beer’s first point of sale, the packaging, to their advantage when attracting consumers to their product. The purpose of this research is to provide the reader with knowledge and insight into package design, with special emphasis on designing for current trends and ...

As well, they allude to how my work developed in its present form. Through the “print-structures”, I explore the nature of design and art ...


Creative Advertising Portfolio, Hayley E. Sunderman May 2017

Creative Advertising Portfolio, Hayley E. Sunderman

Senior Honors Projects, 2010-current

Since I was a young child, all I wanted was to draw and write. I would compose entire binders of my artwork, as well as Microsoft Word documents of the beginnings of mystery novels. As I grew older, I let my self-doubt take over and I convinced myself that I was not talented enough to pursue any type of creative career path. I came into college as a Marketing major knowing that my future career options would be fairly vast. During my junior year, I realized my strong desire to work in creative advertising. Graphic design, copywriting, photography, videography, and ...


Integrating Non-Traditional Materials Into The Design Process, Todd Barsanti May 2017

Integrating Non-Traditional Materials Into The Design Process, Todd Barsanti

Publications and Scholarship

In May 2016, Todd Barsanti attended a one week residency for design educators, hosted by Design Inquiry (designinquiry.net). The residency was held at The Poor Farm, on Vinalhaven Island, in Maine. He used the opportunity to work out some communications that had been percolating since he completed his Master’s Degree in Environmental Studies five years ago; a series of posters that communicate ways in which our patterns of consumption are not sustainable. Beyond the output, though, Todd was interested primarily in documenting the process of creating communications using non-traditional materials. For six days, he mucked around in the ...

Fold: A Modern Lighting Line That Explores Ways To Meld Energy Efficiency And Health Benefits Into Essential Elements Of Interior Lighting., Megan Jane Cook Turner Apr 2017

Fold: A Modern Lighting Line That Explores Ways To Meld Energy Efficiency And Health Benefits Into Essential Elements Of Interior Lighting., Megan Jane Cook Turner

Undergraduate Honors Capstone Projects

Thesis Statement

Lighting plays an essential role in the modern world. Electrical lighting from fluorescent bulbs to LED fixtures greet humans from the moment they wake up until the moment they sleep at night. Light is essential to human life. As such, lighting has been and continues to be a prominent element of design from the grandiose chandeliers of the Rococo period to the minimal, modern lighting of the 21st century.

Lighting continues to be researched, developed, and innovated and plays such an essential role in homes, offices, and the interior or exterior of any building. Lighting design has ...


Hebrew Typography: A Modern Progression Of Language Forms, Shayna Tova Blum Feb 2017

Hebrew Typography: A Modern Progression Of Language Forms, Shayna Tova Blum

Faculty and Staff Publications

Influenced by studies in traditional Ashkenazi and Sephardi scripts. The typeface had been designed for the printing of the Koren Tanakh, a first edition printed Jewish Bible processed through an all-Jewish collaboration for the first time in centuries. Koren’s project was inspired by the revival of Hebrew initiated by Haskalah writers in the 18th century. Haskalah writers utilized the language and scripts of written and printed literary texts. Influenced by philosophical and political ideologies of the European Enlightenment, the Haskalah explored Jewish identity through language by defining the secular context through traditional Jewish symbolism and narratives. The Zionist movement ...

#Notiowanice: Guerrilla Design Tactics And Addressing Nitrate Pollution, Heather V. Sumners-Purdy Jan 2017

#Notiowanice: Guerrilla Design Tactics And Addressing Nitrate Pollution, Heather V. Sumners-Purdy

Graduate Theses and Dissertations

Calling attention to the issue of nitrate pollution in Iowa’s waterways as a result of current agricultural practices, my goal was to initiate a dialogue on social media prompted by guerrilla tactics. The issue of nitrate pollution has been steadily increasing over the past decade as a result of Iowa’s lack of environmental mandates to maintain and monitor nitrate leeching from the soil into the watersheds. In 2015, this issue initiated a lawsuit by the Des Moines Water Works against three northern farming counties, citing runoff into ditches that feed into the Raccoon River as source points of ...


Empathic Experience Design For Cognitive Impairment, Leonardo Orea-Amador Jan 2017

Empathic Experience Design For Cognitive Impairment, Leonardo Orea-Amador

Open Access Theses & Dissertations

Empathic Experience Design (EED) is a technique that lets product designers empathize with their product users with the use of empathic experiences. These empathic experiences are activities that let designers become immersed in a simulation of the users' typical environment and conditions and gain powerful insights of the user's product experience. The simulation uses "tools" like earplugs and gloves that can simulate specific conditions such as hearing loss, or lack of sensitivity, for example. Literature shows that this empathic approach enables designers to discover unarticulated customer needs known as user latent needs. Latent needs produce significant benefits in the ...


"Design And The Creation Of Value." Review Of Design And The Creation Of Value Written By John Heskett And Edited By Clive Dilnot And Susan Boztepe, Kenneth Fitzgerald Jan 2017

"Design And The Creation Of Value." Review Of Design And The Creation Of Value Written By John Heskett And Edited By Clive Dilnot And Susan Boztepe, Kenneth Fitzgerald

Art Faculty Publications

(First Paragraph) If designers have a central precept, it's that their activity creates economic value for commercial interests, which practitioners regard as their predominant purpose. Within design, even among students, this pecuniary capacity is considered self-evident. But the eternal lament among design professionals is that business isn't grasping this certainty, or only does so erratically. Design is largely regarded by the outside world as a frivolous afterthought.


[Rebelution 17]: Gender Bender, Francesca Louise Inocentes Jan 2017

[Rebelution 17]: Gender Bender, Francesca Louise Inocentes

Scripps Senior Theses

Fashion embodies what is accepted and valued in a given culture or society and empowers individuals by building self-confidence, enabling them to express themselves authentically through their bodies and garments. The gender binary, perpetuated by the mainstream fashion industry, marginalizes individuals who do not conform to it. In Rebelution 17, I utilize clothing design and photography to empower and liberate individuals who do not conform to the standards of beauty in regards to gender identity and acceptability. The finished works are featured in a Lookbook – a digital and physical collection of photographs used to market fashion – designed to promote awareness ...


Branding Yourself As An Artist, Jaelynn Burkamper Jan 2017

Branding Yourself As An Artist, Jaelynn Burkamper

Honors Theses at the University of Iowa

In creative industries, it is no longer enough to have an extensive and impressive resume and cover letter. Employers now hope to find sources of creativity in everything a candidate does, including their portfolio and one’s personal brand as reflected through social media accounts and professional websites. Through my honors research I will investigate what makes a strong personal brand and how to use social media to promote oneself as an artist. By conducting research on other artist’s personal brands I was able to create a list of strengths and weaknesses to consider in creating my own personal ...


Painting The Persona, Reed Dean White Jan 2017

Painting The Persona, Reed Dean White

All Theses, Dissertations, and Other Capstone Projects

I am an oil painter who paints the human form as a subject. My technique varies between loose transparent glazes to more realistic impasto, revealing the process in which I paint. My colors are often exaggerated and unrealistic. I choose to paint people in my community because it reveals a story about the time and place I live in. I enjoy painting people because we are interesting as physical objects: color, form, the way our bodies change as we age, what we chose to wear, etc.. We come in many different sizes, colors, shapes, our postures and facial expressions articulate ...


A Sound Idea: An Investigation Into Accessible Video Game Design For The Deaf And Hard Of Hearing, Luke James Brook Jan 2017

A Sound Idea: An Investigation Into Accessible Video Game Design For The Deaf And Hard Of Hearing, Luke James Brook

Theses: Doctorates and Masters

A widely accepted, and incorrect, assumption towards hearing accessibility in video games is that deaf and hard of hearing (DHH) users are those who encounter the least barriers and are generally well catered for. Rapid advancement in video game technology has seen video game sound evolve from simple blips generated by internal circuitry to fully realised digital audio used to convey critical information. To accommodate the DHH, this information needs to be conveyed in an alternative manner. However, evidence suggests existing accessible design solutions for the DHH lack specificity and are insufficient. Thus, the inability to hear, or hear well ...
