Stamps Associate Professors Bruce and Stephanie Tharp have been named Jury Captains for the 2016 Core77 Design Awards. Core77, a product & industrial design “super-site”, asked Bruce and Stephanie to lead the judging process for the annual contest’s Speculative Concepts Category: All conceptual or proposal designs, whether self-initiated for further insight, discourse, intervention or exploration, or created as speculative designs for a client or educational institution. Examples include: future scenarios, design explorations, provocations, and visionary concepts.
Bruce and Stephanie also recently launched a new channel on Core77 focused on Discursive Design - design that “...actually targets the intellect. The primary goal is to prompt self-reflection, ignite the imagination, and foment contemplation — to deliberately make the user think (deeply).”
