Cowgill Lobby: Design Ethics
In this poster display, Industrial Design students explore product design ethics by applying tenets of cultural, professional, personal, and codes of ethics to individual products. Students identify and examine the object, designer, and the design decisions that went into each object to consider whether the object meets their threshold for ethical design at the time it was designed, and whether it would today. In doing so, students explore their own conceptions of design ethics and their own approaches to making ethical decisions as a designer.
