STRUCTURE & SCHEDULE
 
עטיפת כתב העת
 
Goal
To create the template (concept, structure and look & feel) of a publication by and about the Masters of Integrated Design, Holon Institute of Technology. Within the workshop, a more specific target audience will be decided, a publication format (digital or physical) and a coherent structure. It is intended to frame relevant questions of design and society through the prism of integrated design (considering a wide scope of the influences and responsibilities of design - whether political, social, economic, historic etc.), and is targeted at students, professionals and researchers in the fields of design and around it. The content should be in-depth, intellectual and with a theoretical and critical emphasis, yet with a non-academic readability. It's to be determined whether the publication should be in Hebrew, English or a combination of both.
