Yesterday, I spent part of a very summery afternoon with two students from the University of Brighton, UK, (Millie Davies and Bronwyn Opland, above) who are here in New York for a month-long research project. Along with two colleagues, they are conducting interviews with American designers, illustrators, art directors, teachers and students comparing our two design education systems, and how they effect designers in their careers. I look forward to seeing their project progress. Ultimately, they would like to publish their findings in a book. You can read more about it on the Transatlantic Design website.
