The project learning objective is to discuss diversity and inclusion in graphic design and select a graphic designer and why their work should be added to the Meggs' History of Graphic Design textbook.
The objective of this History of Graphic Design project titled “Questioning the Cannon” is to explore the role of diversity and inclusion in graphic design history. In this assignment, students are tasked with analyzing the topic of diversity and inclusion in graphic design. They must select a designer that is part of an underrepresented group and create a persuasive presentation about why this designer must be included in the next edition of the textbook. Questions students must address include: What is diversity and inclusion? How does it impact design? What other steps do you think are needed to improve diversity and inclusion in design?
