The notion that graphic designers should learn to code is all the rage. Seeing through the hype, is it just the latest fad, or does it hold any real value?
Supporting the view that code is an invaluable addition to any modern graphic designer’s toolbox, this talk will answer three questions:
* How is code applied through history within the field of graphic design?
* How will learning to code expand your creative potential?
* How can you use code as an integral part of your design process?
WARNING: Severe risk of getting your view on how you think, plan and execute design turned upside down!
Stig Møller Hansen is a PhD Candidate at The Danish School of Media and Journalism. He is researching how graphic designers can rethink and extend their skills in a computational context.
