CDGD205 West Meets East: Exploring Communication Design in China 3 cr.


The understanding of other cultures is a prerequisite for effective communication and design. Some of the most vital moments of cultural exchange come when engaging in a true dialogue with one’s peers. With this in mind, “West Meets East” is sixteen days experiencing China’s most dynamic cities: Beijing; Guangzhou; and, Hong Kong. This in-depth tour will lead a select group of American communication design students to experience first hand how a Chinese designer lives and works, to discover the sources of his/her inspiration, and to learn how he/she communicates in this rapidly changing global environment. In addition to discovering some of China’s greatest architecture, art and cultural riches, our itinerary will take us to a few leading design education programs as well as into the studios of some of China’s top designers.
