Recently there has been lots of talk about how the rise of automation is changing the workplace—as if a robotic takeover was just around the corner. I don't see automatons massing at the gates, but we need to acknowledge that there's some data fueling this anxiety. For example,
For understandable reasons, the focus during NYCxDesign tends to be on independent designers, design studios and college students—what other demographics are out there designing for a better world? We often forget that designers under 20 years old are now learning digital fabrication at school right under our noses, starting in
NY Design Week officially came to a close last week, but that doesn't mean we're done marveling over our favorite student work seen at NYCxDesign. Throughout the month of May, we spotted some of the best student work at ICFF and WantedDesign Brooklyn. Experimenting with materials and technology and tackling

Beyond the countless brands and blockbusters, design school exhibitions are easily among the more rewarding events in Milan during the Salone del Mobile. Not only do the universities and academies offer a highly visible platform for the students themselves, but the exhibitions also serve as inspiration for current and prospective
With today's rapidly dissolving boundaries in design, it's appropriate that more and more design programs are exploring the possibilities in between disciplines. At last year's Core77 conference, the theme of co-creation explored this idea, and at the 2017 Milan Design Week, Lexus highlighted their own brand commitment to finding innovation
As of last year, mobile gaming revenue surpassed that of console and PC. Angry Birds or Pokémon Go may be great ways to kill time, but digital games need not be solitary pursuits confined to screens—on the contrary, distraction can aspire to reveal something more profound. Case in point, a

The Parsons School of Design Making Center, spanning 2 floors and 35,000SF, is a sprawling, dynamic hub for students to work side by side on projects as diverse as fashion, product design, architecture, print making - with the goal of “fostering a new generation of creators”.

We create and share a wide range of stories, news and information about RISD and
Which do you think is harder to teach: Design, or how to lead a design team? I think it's got to be the latter, as in addition to your own crazy you've now got to manage other people's crazy. I've started reading Ed Catmull's "Creativity, Inc.: Overcoming the Unseen Forces
There's only 10 days left to apply to be a part of the Class of 2019 at SVA's MFA in Products of Design. Chaired by Core77's Allan Chochinov, the program is "a pan-discipline design program concentrating on the sweet spot between design thinking and design making." Here's a bit more:
Congratulations, you've made it to 2017. Last year was a rollercoaster ride and it's safe to say we all deserve a pat on the back for getting through it. With each new year comes new opportunities. We're not talking short-term resolutions - we're talking goals to make big things happen.

I love learning, and I hate school. Sitting in a classroom while a teacher drones on is my idea of torture. It's unnatural and it's boring. But if there's a physical problem to solve—let's say I'm making something in the shop, and it keeps breaking, and I have to find
Once every three years, each department at Rhode Island School of Design is permitted three weeks to display the products of its curriculum in the school's historic Woods-Gerry Gallery. Last week marked the opening of RISD's 2016 Industrial Design Triennial show. The show was publicized by the distribution of

This post is central to the formulation, co-ordination and delivery of the curriculum and ensuring a high quality teaching and learning environment for all students.
When I was in design school, we ID students had little interaction with the other departments. Few of us ever visited the Architecture department, where the students all reportedly behaved like Colonel Kurtz from Apocalypse Now. But it might've been nice to have some creative crossover. SCAD is a design
This past spring the Parallel Times exhibition featured the talented MFA students in the School of the Visual Arts' Products of Design program. Led by faculty member Sinclair Smith, the results of their Product Futuring class were on display as part of the 2016 NYCxDesign Global Design Celebration.
