Strategies for a shared design processAbstractThe tools a graphic designer uses are central elements in the design process. They enable certain ways to design and think by the very manner they work. Designers have experimented with pens, pencils, brushes, paper, and printing techniques for a long time. The computer is a relatively recent tool, whose potentials are not yet fully explored.
All these tools influence not only the graphical output in a crucial way, or as Marshal McLuhan states: “We become what we behold. We shape our tools and then our tools shape us” (Culkin 1967). The computer could be an option to diversify the tools, too. Due to the developments in the field of AI, artificial intelligence, that is, and computer programming, new forms of Computer Aided Designs (CAD) became feasible. The current master-thesis studies offer exemplary options to integrate intelligent computer systems into graphic design.TutorsProf. Marion Fink, Dr. Invar-Torre Hollaus, Ludwig ZellerFileDownload file
