One of the most important parts of a design student’s education is the understanding of how broad the field is and of how many opportunities a designer’s skill set can afford them. Fortunately there are educators like Yael Ort-Dinoor of Boston University's School of Visual Arts who brought her students to City Hall for a tour of Creative Capital: Designed in Boston to reinforce this very point. The exhibit provided a great backdrop for Sam and I to showcase how the same design process that they use for their projects can be used to design anything from a building to an exhibit like the one they were standing in. This message was well received and reinforced by the students themselves whose diverse interests highlighted the point that the lines between disciplines are blurring more and more everyday. Filled with curiosity and a passion for design, we have no doubt that this group of students will go far and we look forward showing off Creative Capital: Designed in Boston to many more talented up and coming designers in the future.
