Stir is : : :

a word meaning, to provoke, to evoke strong feelings in, to rouse to activity

a center embracing design that engages the human senses as a means to add value to the message, product or experience

a travel experience for those interested
in design

a departure point for a children's program that synthesizes art, design, creative learning, and leadership

a set of workshops for designers, artists, architects, and anyone interested in the subject of creativity and the human senses

STIR DEPARTS FROM THIS POINT OF VIEW:

We experience the world first through our physical body and our senses. Sight, hearing, smell, taste and touch (and many more) work together to allow us to perceive and make sense of our surroundings. Sensation informs our reality. Only when the physiological systems of our body are stimulated are we able to participate fully in human experiences.

In the field of graphic design, sight dominates our visual perceptual fields. Much of the work produced by graphic designers relies mainly
on visual images and written words to communicate, with little consideration for the senses other than sight. The design challenges of today’s technology-driven world require that graphic designers think about design, and people, in new and different ways. This goes beyond vision and reading.

By broadening our scope to consider how all the senses play a role in the graphic design experience, we begin to bridge a gap that is being created by an increased removal from physical sensation. And we strengthen our abilities as communicators and our focus on the design of human experiences.
