When I started this program I was REALLY bad at critiquing… anything. I’ve always struggled to say why I liked a certain film, product, etc. I remember sitting and listening to other people critique projects in IDP and thought most of it sounded like complete b.s. but at least they could do that. Now that I am in my final semester, I’m glad that I’m finally learning some frameworks for critique. The “4 ways in” are definitely helpful to me as a designer – so I can design well, but also so I can give an effective critique. I look forward to using this “technique” and would even suggest that maybe it’s something that is introduced in the first year of the program.
