Learning & Design:
Rob Giampietro

‘Our design schools now have undoubtedly produced the design culture we share today. As more designers go to school, go back to school, and return again to teach in school; as there are more postgrad “lifelong learning” environments like conferences and meetups; as there is more discussion and debate online, in after-work lectures and weekend book fairs and degree shows; as designers seek to make themselves better, learn more, and define a life in design as an unfolding lived experience — as all this happens, then the culture of design becomes increasingly more like the culture of school.’
Rob Giampietro, “School Days,” in Graphic Design: Now in Production, 2011
