What They Didn’t Teach Me in Design School

What They Didn’t Teach Me in Design School

Daniel, Aaron, and I discuss some of the things I wish they told us in Design school.

There are always things when you graduate and get into the professional world  we wish we knew. We touch a few things. Of course its impossible for Design Schools to teach every possible outcome you will encounter. We believe there are a few basics that should be emphasized. Some schools work on this others don’t. If you find yourself at a Design School that doesn’t practice some of these basics you can always work on them by yourself. Most importantly as a new professional working with others and having multiple people critique your work is going to be a regular occurrence.  Learn to take those criticisms without taking it personally. Design is a great profession and often takes inputs from all types of people.

We hope you like this talk and feel free to leave comments or reach out to us if you have some inputs.

Discussion of John Maeda’s talk at 2019 SXSW this year.

Dan, Aaron, and I discuss John Maeda’s statement “In reality, design is not that important”. He goes on to say that he thinks that design should play a secondary role in tech companies rather than a leadership role. We talk about the pros and cons of this statement and how we can be better partners within our organizations.
