Psychology of writing things down
Expiry Written language affects everything we do. From learning, to communication, business, and everyday interactions–writing is everywhere. Writing things down is an age-old concept that applies to every industry, but especially interior design. Writing fosters the foundation of collaboration–the most timeless design trend. With modern design, anything can be a writing surface–what should that writing surface be? The desktop? The cubicle walls? Entire walls? The course analyzes written language and explores the psychological benefits of writing in the contexts of to-do lists and collaboration. The content explores writing inacademic and professional environments and inspires designers to include writing surfaces in every design. Every presentation slide appears as a video, as though the content is written in live-time. The goal is to impress the power of written language on the audience, provoke thoughtful listening, and engage the audience to encode the information meaningfully.
