The Evolution Of Design Education

Applied Arts spoke with design educators from across the country to explore the current and future education landscape via fundamental questions like How does a college or university education equip designers to excel in the real world? Are design curriculums maintaining relevance in a digital world where designers are ubiquitous, and there is no traditional path to follow? A timely read for anyone considering a career in the visual arts.

Issues

Dr Ron Burnett approaches the concept of Design Education from a sociological point of view by reviewing its impact on learning, creativity and society as a whole. The bottom line? Design learning needs to tack away from focusing on outcomes and focus on research to discover new ways of thinking, making and doing.

Perspectives

Michael Maynard, Dean of the Faculty of Communication, Art and Design at Seneca College, evaluates the benefits of a college versus university education for designers, wondering if it matters where you studied when you go for that first job interview.

Next

Dustin Johnston-Jewell on strategic foresight; its definition, benefits to clients, and why it should be a fundamental tool for all designers.

Be prepared to be wowed by the multitude of 2019 Student Winners. The caliber of work showcased throughout the Student Issue reveals burgeoning talent and hints at the next up-and-coming designers to watch out for.

"The beauty of student work is that it's an open sandbox. There's usually no brief or parameters to the work so the creativity can really breathe."
Zachary Bautista, Art Director, Rethink, Toronto, ON
