We teach DESIGN because we are in love with IT and want to share why
and how, because the world most assuredly needs impassioned designers about now.
We find it fun and endlessly challenging, particularly when students make the process
a two-way street.

Faculty interests require different processes. Eve is fascinated with paper, letterforms
and old tools, drags nature home from the woods and follows politics and certain
psychologists, which all get incorporated into social design projects through her
own process somewhat modeled after Joseph Cornell. Joe is interested in vernacular
design and design history and is meticulous at craftsmanship, so you will find
him working on the letterpress or creating 3d patterns for model robots when he’s
not researching for his book on early poster shops. Kofi is just a genius with
a passion to make the world better and the work ethic or at least sleep pattern
of Thomas Jefferson. His process includes a mastery at sketching and storyboarding
by hand before turning on the computer, which is a successful model for all designers.
He can also learn just about any software he encounters.
We are proud of our adjunct faculty who are award-winning practicing designers.
