This semester has been a great experience. After this class, I am much more confident in my ability to apply aesthetics to the designs I make in the future. Not only do I have a better understanding of what aesthetics are, but I also have strengthened my ability to think critically about aesthetics and the motivation behind them. In addition to expanding my knowledge pertaining to aesthetics, I was able to make two artifacts that I am very proud of. Through the creation of these artifacts, I better understand the challenges in applying a specific aesthetic and was able to develop new skills pertaining to the design process and hands-on production. I think one of the greatest takeaways from the class for me is how useful sketching is for concept generation and development of a design.
