Edition of 20

During my MFA education, I went through a phase of angst fueled by the idea of comparison between different design education programs. I constantly questioned the choices I made in picking schools and my lack of knowledge about them. I even considered whether we should get rid of 90-99% of the existing programs. But instead of erasing and starting over, why not try something else?

As part of my MFA thesis work, I created a small publication to share projects, understanding, and goals with other educators. Not everyone can attend an elite school, but we can all work on the same projects.

Projects are created with specific learning goals in mind, similar to how I work with clients at my day job. We use projects to help students learn concepting and how to articulate their work effectively.
