There is a major disconnect between the life of a design student and the transition to being a design professional. To demystify the transition, we share the failures, successes, and surprises during our years in college and progression into the field: the creative process, monetary problems, internships, interviews, mistakes, and personal relationships. We include the work from our first design class to our most current client work, along with side stories and interviews from our mentors, teachers, and peers. This book will serve as the ultimate companion for design students, educators, and anyone breaking into a creative field.
At the combined age of 53 their work has been recognized by shiny awards, appeared in many magazines and coffee table books, and featured in three museums. They met while studying graphic design at California College of the Arts. After graduating, they moved to New York City where they got jobs with MTV working in motion and print before leaving their dream jobs to start a studio of their own. They also co-teach design, type and new media classes at the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn. Their book about transitioning from school to working in the field of graphic design, entitled Never Sleep, is in stores now.
