“I would suggest that you consider being less regimental about your design assignments. That is, you are a terrific worker and creative. But there will come a time in future classes that you will need to break out of the box (to use the over used cliché). Can you discover new and interesting creative expression simply by never exploring off the syllabus map? Can you discover new ideas and new ways of design thinking by never leaving that focus on following assignment guidelines to perfection? In the end, you do the assignment… But to get there and to exceed expectations of your professors, in the design process and discovery, be a little wild more often! It will take you to new and unexpected places as you learn. ” —Comment for a young design student who works a little too perfectly.
