Abstract
Study aim. In this paper I will argue and discuss a teaching process of fundamental design. When discussing initial instruction of basic tools for design thinking, I find it most appropriate to begin with a method that belongs to the world of art [1]. Method. In my experience, when studies are launched with planning-oriented thinking as their basis, it is far more difficult to subsequently adopt conceptual thinking. By contrast, when storytelling, poetics, and conceptualizations are introduced at the outset as the foundation of design work, the result is a stable infrastructure for subsequent development of planning-oriented thinking. These observations encouraged me to develop a joint freshman program for all design departments when I served as Dean of the Faculty of Design at the Holon Institute of Technology. Until then, departments conducted separate programs that began emphasizing their particular respective professional principles as early as the first year of each program. By contrast, the joint first-year program established students’ common foundation of theoretical conceptual thinking and initial design language tools of expression concerning line, composition, and form.
