My 8-page visual narrative, “‘The Disconnect'” was published in Volume II, issue II of Dialectic, the academic journal of the AIGA Design Educators Community. The journal, for which I serve on the Editorial Board, is available in print through Amazon.
Design and the Creation of Value
I review the book Design and the Creation of Value by John Heskett and edited by Clive Dilnot and Susan Boztepe in the second issue of the academic journal Dialectic—for which I also serve on the editorial board. I say of the book, “Because it focuses on design’s core rationale, my impulse is to pronounce this short, posthumously assembled volume as one of the most important texts ever offered on design. I argue that this is one of the field’s essential books.”
Laura Rossi Garcia: Dialectic Designer
My short feature on Laura Rossi Garcia was posted at the AIGA Design Educators Community website. Rossi was selected to be the first designer for Dialectic, the new academic journal produced by the AIGA Design Educators Community. I also serve on the founding Editorial Board of the journal, and proposed Rossi for the position after meeting her and reviewing her thesis work at Vermont College of the Fine Arts this past spring.
