The publication explores the work of Oreste Fernando Nannetti, an Italian artist whom lived for over 20 years behind the walls of the Psychiatric Hospital of Volterra. During his permanence he carved into the walls of the asylum with the metal buckle of his jacket and he produced a hand-crafted book of stone which stretched across seventy metres. In his text he talks about an imaginary world where he is in contact with the supernatural.
A redesigned version of some chapters selected from the Looking Closer series, to educate young designers about responsibilities in design. By highlighting the most significant sentences within the writings, I have tried to recreate a new complete and updated graphic design manifesto.
The process book that aims to showcase the design process behind the Looking Closer book and to investigate my interests into the design industry.
Graphic design universities train students to work with type, image and layout for the development of the skills needed to produce visually appealing compositions. They also introduce students to visual communication theories, so as that they can start contextualizing their work into bigger topics. However, it has now become much more important to support students to make connections between the two areas of design. The undergraduates need to perceive these two components as one, if they want to be recognized as successful visual problem-solvers.
This thesis aims to investigate theories about graphic design education, by taking the Graphic & Media Design Course at London College of Communication as the main focus.
