Readmill Blog: Q+A with Frank Chimero

Last week, Frank Chimero (YG8) was interviewed by the Readmill blog about the highly anticipated release of his new book, The Shape of Design. “I was teaching a thesis design class for undergraduate students in Portland, Oregon, and felt really frustrated I couldn’t find suitable reading that encouraged my students to think bigger and more holistically. I wanted a field guide for the emerging skill set; the types of skills design is a prime candidate to teach: storytelling, improvisation, craft, gift-giving,” said Frank, regarding his motivation for putting his pen to paper. Find out how Kickstarter played a huge role in turning The Shape of Design into a reality and why this book isn’t just for designers here.
