inspiring...

inspiring...

i don't know if i was particularly inspiring but today i visited with the sophomore class of the interior design school at the university of arkansas...

their professor heard about me, what i'm doing now, and what my previous background is via mc wife...and she invited me to visit her class...

currently they are working on a design proposal for a new cafe/coffee and light foods venue at the university campus...

i visitied with the class along with a field expert form the hospitality sector, and together we answered questions form the students for an hour or so...

the questions were quite varied, and i was impressed by the thought processes of these second year students...they all seemed very clued into key issues such as meeting the clients need, created a functional space that;s user-friendly, creating the right ambience and how to research a project to include a suitable colour palette and material selection...

i managed to throw out some of my own experinces that i have encountered as a designer, as well as discuss various designers who i like to look to for inspiration...

and just in case any of todays sophomore class are visiting the blog and didn't catch what i said earlier...here's the list...


i didn't reference philippe starck in todays class...but if you did come here to see some of the resources i spoke about...look at the websites on the right hand side of this post...

You were very informative to our class today. Thank you for posting the resources. I'm certain some of us will take you up on your offer to answer more questions via email as we get further into our project.
Thanks again!
