Bruce and Stephanie Tharp Featured in University Record

March 20, 2018

Stamps Associate Professors Bruce and Stephanie Tharp were recently featured in a University Record story on their industrial design practice, teaching, and work in the field of discursive design.

While industrial design is most associated with commercial applications, Bruce and Stephanie Tharp hope their work in discursive design will help develop the field by promoting the ability for products to communicate ideas and engage people in discourse.

“Why should we not be able to use our medium critically in the same way as architects, graphic designers, writers, and other creative disciplines?” Bruce Tharp asked.
