Brief: 103 Boundaries

Monday, 14 Nov 2016
Dr James Moore

… It’s a lack of imaginative thinking that concerns us. It’s very difficult to go out on a limb and propose a really new way of thinking about something, or reimagining how we might live, there is so much pressure to conform which is making radical thought very difficult, at least in design.

Being educators, we’re always exploring ways of setting up conditions for free imagining, a place where extreme creative risk-taking is normal.

The biggest enemy is the idea of the ‘real’ being limited to only what is possible now, and the very narrow view of life, and what design can do that goes with it.

 Anthony Dunne & Fiona Raby



This module allows you to take more radical entry points into your understanding of practice; taking project interest into new forms, or creating a critical design response frommore theorised, speculative, fictional or experimental catalysts.

In exploring this approach, debate around ‘designer as author’ becomes central to studying the discourse between maker and reader; how works are used and evolve; how you or your work disrupts or provokes.

Analysis of key theories and ideas form the starting point for this module, giving a strong emphasis to a ‘praxis’ based approach, ‘making in new ways’ and exploring broader arts orientated-methodologies.

The project in this final module of ‘deconstruction’ sees you submit a critical and contextual essay, structurally coupled to the practice based enquiry.



1. Deliberately re-phase process to enhance innovation in practice.


2. Identify new contextual insight and theory to support evolving practice.

3. Facilitate a review of practice methodology through experimental exposure to new media platforms and embrace risk as a fundamental character to design practice.


Within this module you will…

  1. Adopt a critical design perspective and apply broader arts practice methodologies.
  2. Undertake Critical and contextual essay writing, structurally coupled to your practice.
  3. Develop an authorial position and methodology in relation to design process & scenario modelling.
  4. Develop digital and analogue making skills.

Week 3.


Design outcomes, development work & critical reflection [75%]

All development work, research and final outcomes should be presented on project boards.

Your DRJ for this period should also incorporate a video / concept demonstration of you electronic prototype.

2500 word essay [25%]
Your essay should reflect on the critical theoretical framework you adopted & explain how this inflected upon the design & development of your work.

A Boundary is a definite place where your responsibility ends and another person’s begins. It stops you from doing things for others that they should do for themselves.

Love of Wisdom / An adventure of ideas

What is the nature of our reality?

Metaphysics – investigation of ultimate reality, Ontology

Epistemology – the study of origins, validity and limits of knowledge

Ethics – Morality, judgment, relationship between individual and state

Aesthetics- Nature, beauty and judgments of perception


If you could choose just one thing to change about the world, what would it be?

  1. Brighten the corner / Frank Phillipin    

“We like simple design. We like to keep things clear and enjoy editing out all the unnecessary bits that cling to ideas, so you can call us minimalists, it’s OK. But we don’t like dry work. We believe design should be concept driven, personally formed as well as engaging & fun.”

Brighten the Corners is Frank Philippin and Billy Kiosoglou. A German and a Greek, we met studying Graphic Design and set up Brighten the Corners after graduating from the Royal College of Art in London in 1999. We have a studio in London (Brixton) and in the Odenwald (near Darmstadt/Frankfurt).

Over the years, we’ve worked with many clients including the Goethe-Insitut, the British Council, the Department for Education, Accenture, and Laurence King Publishing, happily switching between public sector, corporate and cultural environments. All along we’ve resisted specialising. This is important to us, as we feel that doing the same thing over and over leads to formulaic responses, and they never quite work. And it keeps us on our toes, so that we don’t become “those guys who only do annual reports” or something equally scary.

We’ve won quite a few awards as well. Not just for posters, logos, programmes, websites or events we’ve designed, but most recently for the outcome of a university workshop. And we like to keep our hands in many pies: we publish and sell work in our online shop and teach Graphic Design at the University of Darmstadt and UAL: Camberwell College of Arts in London.
For more information about who we are, why we have this name, our manifesto, how to brighten the corners, or a list of our awardspublications (print, online & TV/radio), talksexhibitions and clients, click accordingly.we’ve kept our studio small.”

Process workshop: Design Methodologies


There is no such answer for design process. Design process is ‘the problem with the problem(perspective)’

On 21 Sept, A Design process workshop was instructed by Andy Neal in the afternoon, investigating different process models and tools.

We were divided in small group to understand and experience three different activities which was;


  1. 6 Thinking hats by Edward de Bono
  • six colours; red, white, yellow, black, red, green.
  • start and end with blue

Bono is one of the pioneers of Brain Training. In 1967 he invented the world famous Lateral Thinking technique. He is a proponent of the direct teaching of thinking as a skill. He has dedicated his life to help people from around the world improve their thinking abilities and creativity skills. His courses such as  Six Thinking Hats Method and thinking tools have been used by top corporations, governments and world leaders but his tools have also been used by school children. His methodologies have been proven to help people of all thinking levels to make smarter decisions, faster.


2. Lateral thinking : Oblique strategies card.
What If you only have a piece of paper without a computer for the whole day?

Exercise) Think about the recent project that you have done and use the oblique strategies card to think about it.

I thought about one of my BA degree project called ‘Wander capsule: social platform app for solo travellers’ and found out the design process orders were flipped in some ways…and the resources was inappropriate in some ways.
