Graphic Design Thesis

Specifically, a great thesis is as stated by a Yale master:
•innovative and relevant to the practice of contemporary graphic design
•critical, focused on expanding or altering the field
•informed by precedent and a broad consideration of disciplinary siblings
•articulate, visually and verbally
•independent, driven by an individual method rather than by stylistic emulation
•expansive enough to warrant substantial investigation and a generative practice that can
be sustained for your time at Yale and beyond
•not so broad that you can’t engage it meaningfully
