Project: Design History


Look into Bauhaus design  (link). Bauhaus design has influenced work in poster, magazine, and other print to design to architecture and other areas. On your blog, describe what your seeing in the works your own words? Find a few a examples you like and put them on your blog. If you’re trying to google “Bauhaus” and aren’t finding much relevant content, try googling “Bauhaus Design” instead.

There’s a video on Time’s website about the Bauhaus School. Don’t use these two links as your only source to see some of the work from and influenced by Bauhaus, but its a good start and a much faster way to get an overview of the school’s history.

If you didn’t finish the tutorial from last class, finish that first. Create your own physical collage influenced by the style of Bauhaus. See my example. You can use your own magazines if you want, or I have a collection of old national geographics that can be used.
