Some recent talks
I just finished reading your “A Unified Theory for Designing Just About Anything” article on Medium, and I just wanted to say it was a really inspirational read. I just graduated from Parsons Design and Technology MFA, and to be honest, I’ve been feeling a little bit lost recently (I’ve been job hunting for the past several months to no avail), but your CAMP acronym and your general way of framing design have sparked my hope and curiosity once again, so I just wanted to express my gratitude.
Hope you are staying safe and healthy in these trying times.
