Call it creative ingenuity across disciplines and cultures. And call it the product of a long flight to Taiwan! Last week under the direction of Prof. C.J. Yeh from Communication Design, students from Asia University of Taiwan participated in a four-day workshop with a visiting assortment of international academics, including Dean Joanne Arbuckle.
Collaborative projects with an unusual mix of disciplines — including fashion, communication and industrial design — were judged on the last day of the workshop.
Dean Arbuckle led a group that used its fashion and product design skills to produce hats. “It’s an exciting process when you bring students together from disciplines that don’t traditionally work together,” said Dean Arbuckle.
