The Future Vision Art and Design Education is...?

In the future Art & Design is about interacting with the world to deal with today's large, complex problems, art and design education needs to change to include multiple disciplines, technology, art, the social sciences, politics, and business.

Steve Jobs also described this approach well in 1996 "A lot of people in our industry haven't had very diverse experiences. So they don't have enough dots to connect, and they end up with very linear solutions without a broad perspective on the problem. The broader one's understanding of the human experience, the better design we will have."

Needs to understand the principles of traditional design to be successful. The reality, though, is that a majority of design students today are learning those skills outside of their coursework.  

There are lots of great resources for designers to learn best-practices in product design and design thinking, but we found a lack of a centralized repository.

The areas that have become so valuable for digital transformation.

What's more, aren't just consolidating independent design education, they're providing insight into the most cutting-edge design methods and frameworks.

Because of the velocity that the tech industry changes today, traditional universities and design schools are having difficulty continuously updating their curriculum to prepare emerging designers for real work. The best way to deliver modern best-practices is to go straight to the source.
