The Graphic Design MFA Thesis at Boston University takes the form of a body of work that serves as an active inquiry into how design articulates the student's unique perspective on themselves and their place in the world of design. It involves the production of knowledge through graphic design and is ultimately compiled into a book and web page.
My thesis, Divergent Perception, looks at the perception and practice of graphic design from a neurodivergent point of view. Through my body of work, I questioned the typical academic need for deep symbolism in design and argued for accessibility and functionality while exploring my own methods and practices.
In my 220-page book (and web page available under the Thesis tab), I presented eleven projects that explore my own perception of the world as a neurodivergent designer and that detail my own design methodology.
