Connecting to Design was created with today's student in mind...
It is this that inspired me to create a book that is relevant to our students…a book that works for them. A book that is engaging and designed for the interactive experience. Therefore, I created Connecting to Design with two main objectives:
1. Student Success
Empower our students by delivering new concepts and ideas in a way that works for them… visually clear, concise, and easy to comprehend.
Connecting to Design reaches students in a way that validates and builds their confidence in design immediately; they are then invested in design and the design program. When students relate and process information immediately, they feel empowered; otherwise they can become overwhelmed, which is stifling and may cause them to lose interest.
2. Student Commitment
Inspire our students by examining these new concepts in a way that is relevant to them… in their area of design.
Connecting to Design encourages students to apply the concepts to their area of design by providing a source that contains fresh “real life” examples where they can discover how designers in the real world are employing the elements and principles in a variety of design fields!
