Design Legends: Charles Rennie Mackintosh
The first in a series of teaching resources consideringinfluential designers identified in the GCSE specifications for D&T that present for students a summary of their lives, influences, examples of their work and the context in which they developed their ideas.
This three-minute video and accompanying PowerPoint presentation is planned to inspire students to consider the work of a particular designer and use the information to develop their own design ideas, for example by designing in the style of Charles Rennie Mackintosh or conduct further research to help them in their own design decisions.
Teachers can use and adapt the materials to fit in with their own planning, as appropriate, such as introducing a drawing or modelling exercise or comparing the work of CRM to another, contrasting designer.
Design Legends is intended to accompany the Design Waves series of presentations that summarises art and design movements and their influence. Design Waves covers six movements, the context and conditions from which they emerged, examples of their output and the influences they have had upon other designers. Each contains information on the leading figures in the movement; the political, cultural, economic and technological context of the period in which it emerged; a summary of the movement’s ideas, influences, output, and the legacy as both artefacts and inspiration, and suggestions for further activities based on the movement’s features.
