Principles and Elements of Design 

Luis Castaneda

This seminar proposes one generative question - ‘What is design’? The seminar intends to provide a preliminary visual response to this basic question by introducing to its participants both a conceptual as well as a practical understanding of design within fine-art and visual communication contexts. Through research, discussion and a series of practical exercises, students will activate and combine several faculties and skills including: observation, critical thinking, imagination, and experimentation aided by different tools and materials. In addition, intuition will be considered as a vital part of their study, as it embodies the subjectivity and emotions of every designer.Several dimensions of design will be investigated: surfaces, two-dimensions, solid three-dimensions, time and space.Finally, students will produce a document of their visual studies and creativity to be exhibited and shared, with the hope that it motivates them to continue to learn and practice design.

 

Typography

Huda Smitshuijzen AbiFarès

An intensive 2-day typography seminar that focuses on the experimental potential of Arabic typeface design. The seminar will lay the ground for breaking out of the traditional mold of creating Arabic letterforms and will encourage experimentation with forms, tools and lettering techniques.

The letters will be treated as formal elements that go beyond writing and test the limits of readability. Vernacular and architectural elements from the context of Jeddah’s urban landscape will form the starting ideas of the typographical explorations.

The seminar will teach basic principles of designing an Arabic typeface. It will help participants look at their direct environment with more critical eyes. It will inform the participants of the creative possibilities of Arabic typeface design.

Requirements

1.Participants should undertake a preliminary research collecting images (photos) of Arabic lettering from their daily life and from the city of their residence.
