Mix-&-match illustrations of people with a design library.
Over the last year I drew all my notes at Stanford class on Design Thinking in a visual way that anyone can understand.
I captured the whole course of lectures in one fun, visual format that makes it very easy to explain some of the concepts or method of design thinking to a colleague or a friend.

Workshop Project AGAIN invites sixteen educators from a broad range of institutions to explore the radical potential of the artifacts and platforms of design education (tools, projects, syllabi, resource lists and the like) as spaces for new forms of critical writing, making, and discourse.
This annual workshop and the outcomes we make are meant to articulate, respond to and disrupt an urgent issue in contemporary graphic design education. Participants will generate a collection of pedagogical artifacts, platforms and other unforeseen outcomes that will be published on Workshop Project Wiki as a set of FREE resources for educators, students and practitioners. The workshop will culminate in a FREE, informal, public presentation where participants present, debate and discuss their outcomes, beliefs, values, and interests.
This year FREE 2018 challenges you to dive into two intertwined currents and take an ideological position in the unresolvable dichotomy:
HUMANISM vs POSTHUMANISM in graphic design education
As humans we are chameleons; we speak in many tongues and take on many guises. In HUMANISM lies authorship, personal voice, agenda and authenticity. Beneath its surface lies a complex, intricately constructed, and often unexpected interior. POSTHUMANISM reflects our images back at us in hyper-real, high definition: harder, better, faster, stronger. It makes us at once bottomless / hollow / void AND prolific / plural / simultaneous. Our collective desires manifest in its material, sonic, visual and temporal presence.
CHOOSE A SIDE and imagine, debate, and test drive the impractical, the extreme and the impossible in a space that is FREE from the constraints of institution, convention and expectation.
