Introduction & Setting up the Designer Blog

Welcome to The Global Studio.

We have just completed the first week of the 2021 activities. 

The Global Studio activities are based on geographically distributed collaboration between paired students teams as well as academics from universities around the world. To enable the teams to collaborate for the lecturers to provide your with a timely support your project process activities need to be recorded via your project blogs. You will set-up your Design Team’s project blogs and you will be be responsible for keep it up-to-date following the stages of the project. These project blogs will be used by the lecturers to evaluate your learning.

Each design design team has been allocated a specific project site. Please see the team allocation list below to find out a link for your design team’s project site. In order to log onto your project site you should create your account. Please contact and for queries and/or problems. For specific questions about your class please contact your lecturer.

This year’s theme is Gifting Happiness.

We expect the teams in their roles as clients to talk to their specific family members such as parents who will form the intended “users” (mothers, or fathers, of aunties or uncles), take photos, and discover their unique practices which they consider bring them “happiness”.

To develop the client brief each team will need to will summarise their analysis through visual materials such as storyboards or short movies or comics or animations. These visual materials are intended to support your allocated design teams to become familiar with your selected users’ day to day practices and to guide their design processes. Thus, you, as the local cultural expert on your selected users’ practices will need to support and guide your designers during the project.

The client teams will post the briefs including the on their allocated design teams project blogs. Finally, we will expect the client teams to make informal user tests with the users who inform the briefs and include these moments in their concluding videos and evaluations.
