Entrepreneur designers in final form - Liz Danzico has posted a thorough set of links to SVA’s IxD MA (@svaixd) brilliant course (in Europe we would say module) on Entrepreneurial Design taught by Gary Chou and Christina Cacioppo.
The final class project is that students must raise $1,000. Many, but not all, have gone the Kickstarter route (and been successful). It’s interesting to see how this task has kick-started (pun intended) the students into action rather than endless deliberation – the student curse.
Even more cool for the rest of us is that Gary and Christina have generously made their syllabus and assignments available to everyone under a CC license. Be sure to check out the class blog too. This kind of thing is the future of design education.
