What do good designers want to teach?
Stories from designers who work and teach. What kind of person becomes a designer? How does a designer get started and what is the process of becoming a designer? John Sueda, one of the designers who contributed to the book "Homework: Practices and Processes in Design Education", says that one of the biggest differences between the way he started his career and now is that many design students come from paths that were previously unrelated to design.
Adrian Shaughnessy, a professor at the Royal College of Art in the UK and another contributor to the book, says that the future of design will go in so many different directions that it will be impossible to teach them all. What is the current state of design education in preparing future designers for such a diverse field? For this book, designers from all over the world, including Korea, the United States, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland, China, and even Brazil in South America, have contributed materials, lessons, and assignments that they have used in their own classrooms. When an industry-recognized designer goes out into the classroom, he tries to convey to his students what he wants them to know, and Homework is a book that puts it all together.
