The Great Discontent interview

Don’t believe too much you read on the web

Why you should not believe reviews on commercial web sites. This was sent to this blog:
“Hi ,
My name is Jane and I have a couple of wall decals online shops which need review post.
I found some good design and home improvement related articles at your website, so I think maybe you would be interested. If you don’t want to write, I can provide the articles.
200-word article or more is enough and with links to our websites.
We can negotiate one rate.
Our website is: (some Canadian web site)
Please let me know if you are interested.
Kind Regards
Jane”

Sadly, ironically, New York is displacing the people that made it what it was… The entire city has become a playground for money, wealth and sterilized housing, and that’s not what’s traditionally made it interesting.

Really? All by hand?

Facebook gave up on a better design because it was so good and efficient, people did not linger to see the dumb ads.

There’s nothing about our model that can’t be copied over time. But you know, McDonald’s got copied. And it still built a huge, multibillion-dollar company. A lot of it comes down to the brand name. Brand names are more important online than they are in the physical world.

Through Process is a podcast about how we become designers.

Hello everyone,

I would like to make you aware of a design education podcast that a fellow educator and I have been producing over the past few months. The podcast is called “Through Process,” and we have just released our 5th episode this week. The podcast is focused on the pedagogy of design education and the methodology of design practice. My co-host Namdev Hardisty and I have open, raw conversations about all things design and design school, and I believe that the design education community at large will find it to be a valuable dialogue. We have also started having guests join the conversation, which we plan to continue with in the future.

The podcast is available on iTunes and the web at www.throughprocess.com

We welcome any feedback, questions, topics, references, or other ideas you have (contact information is on the site). Our plan is to do this for many years to come, as there is no shortage of things to discuss.

Thank you!

Mitch Goldstein
Assistant Professor of Graphic Design
School of Design, Rochester Institute of Technology
