2015 Design Schools Workshop: Design Forever

2015 Design Schools Workshop: Design Forever

This year’s Design Schools Workshop was very successful. The theme “Design Forever” was particularly inspiring and led the students to think about an important subject and engage in interesting dialogs. The 3 schools involved this year, Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD), Art Center College of Design and Centro Mexico had all participated previously (It was SCAD’s second time, Centro Mexico’s third time and Art Center College of Design’s forth time). The 15 students successfully embraced the challenges of collaborating, which can sometimes be more complicated than competing. Lego Group’s Creative Director, Jeremy Brazeal recognizes, “what a great challenge and opportunity this design charette was. I was impressed at how without knowing each other they were all able to use their different diverse backgrounds and perspectives as a positive opportunity and not a deterrent. Once these students begin their careers the ability to collaborate, share ideas and know when to let go of their own perspectives to let the perspectives of others in will be paramount to success.” More
