Design Genealogy provides opportunity for the discovery of connections among notable designers and their work through an engaging learning experience. Its flexible format provokes inspiration, fosters investigation, and encourages retention of information.
Rather than a traditional textbook, Design Genealogy is delivered in sets of twelve portfolio folders that come in a box. Each box has a different theme relating to design history and focuses on twelve designers relating to that theme.
This project shares an example of one box — Design Leaders. The folders and cards are translated into an interactive website. You can view an animated walkthrough of the website by clicking here.
