Ok. So here’s the recap you’ve been waiting for. But for the thoughts from the entire class, check out the blog on our website which is still being updated.
I learned a lot about how people treat the business of design in the real world.I’d say that every place we we went to had their own specialty. I was pretty impressed by almost everyone.
We went to the Cooper Hewitt museum, but unfortunately did not have enougth time to go to MOMA. But I did get to hang around the MOMA store which was pretty cool.
After the trip though, we were all exhausted. We had so many tours planned, that we werre rushing around New York every day.
But it was totally worth it. And if anyone that helped us go on the trip is reading this, Thank You. It was an invaluable experience for all of us.
The senior lighting design studio at Tech was inspired by our success so much that they have planned their own trip. You can check them out at their website here.
So now, after a whirlwind of trips, it’s time to focus back on studio, where my group is redesigning the barbershop workstation.
I think the craziest thing is that most hair cutters who have been in the industry for a while have a lot of damage to their bodies from standing up and doing repetitive motions for so long. This could be a real source of inspiration for my group and I.
