Innovating the Design Process: A Theatre Design Journey
Innovating the Design Process: A Theatre Design Journey explores the process of designing for theatre and details how each part of a designer’s own process, no matter what their design specialization, can be innovated and adapted for a more confident journey and for better outcomes.
The book observes and deconstructs the processes used by theatre designers, uncovers and explains the structure and concepts behind those processes and shows how they can be easily reassembled for better results and to meet different situations. It uses innovative real-world practical examples from all the fields of theatre design taken from shows throughout the author’s career. The processes covered in this book are split into two sections – design development and design implementation – with an additional chapter covering design presentations. Written in an engaging and informative style, this text opens up a designer’s ability to innovate within the design process to optimize reproducibility, resilience, personal fit, confidence, collaboration and audience engagement.
Innovating the Design Process is a next level book for both MFA theatre design students and early career professionals who wish to develop their craft further. Seasoned professionals will also find within its pages concepts to reinvigorate their own design process.
The book includes access to an online guide to using Microsoft Word for Mac to mirror content in two separate documents.
