Graphic Design at the University of Hawai‘i The University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa is a Carnegie I research university and the flagship institution of the ten-campus University of Hawai‘i system. Located in a lush tropical valley in a residential neighborhood of Honolulu (a city with approximately 400,000 residents) it enrolls about one-third of the system’s 50,000 students. The student body is highly diverse and includes international students from Asia, the Pacific, and Europe, as well as students from Hawai‘i, Alaska and the continental United States. The Design Area is located within the larger Department of Art and Art History—a comprehensive and diverse center in the Asia/Pacific region for the study of design, visual art, and art history. Comprising seven distinct media areas plus art history, the department combines seasoned faculty expertise with state-of-the-art facilities to provide an outstanding locus for study in design and the visual arts. Over the years the Department has sponsored a lively visiting designer, artist and scholar program that brings visitors to Honolulu for lectures and workshops that complement the regular activities of the Department. These visitors have included designers Irma Boom, Elizabeth Diller and Ric Scofidio, Michael Sorkin, Stefan Sagmeister, Massimo Vignelli; artists Xu Bing, Mel Chin, Hasan Elahi, Ann Hamilton, Mona Hatoum, Pepon Osorio, Lisa Reihana; and scholars Glenn Adamson, Julia Bryan-Wilson, Wu Hung, Lucy Lippard, and Lowrey Stokes Sims. This department initiative was complemented by design-specific programming in 2012, when the University of Hawai‘i was a partial sponsor of the AIGA Educators conference: Geographics: Design, Education and the Transnational Terrain—a conference that brought over one hundred and fifty designers and scholars from twenty-three countries to Honolulu. Conference speakers included: Peter Hall, Russell Kennedy, Sheila Levrant de Bretteville, Sharon Poggenpohl, Ella Shohat, and Lucille Tenezas. This environment provides a unique and rich context for faculty and students to thrive. Over the past twenty years, the graphic design area has been recognized internationally, nationally and locally for its excellence.

  15. Howdy All, Forgive me if this topic has been covered. My question is how to do you tackle student internships? Specifically I would say unpaid internships. I am constantly getting contact for internships that are unpaid. Teaching at an HBCU my students don't have the luxury to take unpaid internships. The ones I reject right away, are the ones that have no educational value for the student. Example. A company once wanted a graphic design intern, but didn't have a graphic designer or art director on staff. Basically they just wanted a free graphic designer. Is this a problem in your area? How do you tackled this? Thanks, Mitch

Exploring notions of craft within contemporary graphic design education By definition, craft describes both the act of making things by hand and the art of persuasion. This double meaning resonates with the discipline of Graphic Design as so much of our practice is wrapped up in how and why we create communication. New technology has certainly increased our craft and influence, often beguiling our users. However, its dark art also questions our magician’s status as artificial intelligence generates increasingly persuasive autonomous design. By contrast, the ubiquity of technology-driven solutions has also created a greater appetite for bespoke design crafted by the human hand. Therefore as our field of expertise continues to evolve – fusing, multiplying, specialising – and the mystery and power of its application grows, deciding what to learn and how to study it is a prevalent question for both aspiring and established designers and educators. From designer-makers to digital strategists let us share, explore and debate the w**chcraft inherent in the practice and education of contemporary graphic design. Presenters will discuss a range of topics on graphic design education from design practice, research, history, theory and criticism.
