“Human Ecology is an interdisciplinary applied field that uses a holistic systems approach to examine the many contexts of people’s lives. In particular, we focus on the dynamic relationships people have with their near environments: clothing, family, home and community. Our mission is to create healthy human environments that enhance the quality of daily life. “
(excerpt from the Human Ecology webpage)
As students in HECOL 250: Design Studies and Practice, you were asked to develop a design concept for a mural that would represent the Department of Human Ecology. You did your research, developed a concept, sketched out some ideas, chose one, and developed that further. The presentation of your mural concept was a chance for you not only to explain the process behind your design decisions, but to demonstrate what you have learned throughout the semester. The murals were extremely well presented and the discussions that followed proved to us how you are all thinking like designers.
As promised, I have scanned the murals so that you have a chance to see them all. They are all so different and the potential is amazing. Great job class!
Pretty amazing stuff, right?
