Design May 7, 2012
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.
