What a week it’s been…and what a fall it’s shaping up to be! I’ve been transitioning from visiting family, going to the beach, and am now headed full-speed into the fall design rush (it seems that as soon as summer vacations end and kids head back to school, people dream up dozens of design projects to tackle). A designer has greater things to complain about than work, though!
While many parents are freed up as kids head back to school, I’m going to be taking on a different kind of workload myself this fall: next week marks the beginning of my graduate course at the Corcoran College of Art + Design, where I’ll be teaching a seminar on conceptual development and communication. I’ve been teaching continuing education at the Corcoran for years, and I am thrilled to expand my role to the graduate school this year. I’ll be kicking it off this weekend as I run a short workshop about Design and Social Media for the students. What a busy few month’s it’s going to be! I’m looking forward to it.
Please excuse me as I juggle my new schedule in the coming weeks; I hope it doesn’t affect my posting schedule too much, but I expect the frequency to be a little lighter (well, if we’re being honest, I expect it to be as it’s been for the past few weeks). In the meantime, I hope you are all enjoying the acts of sharpening pencils and cleaning paintbrushes as much as I am — fall is my favorite season, and this one will be no exception!
