On Wednesday of this week twenty to twenty five design students from the University of Alberta in both Visual Communication Design and Industrial Design came for studio visit where I work at Daylife. I was really happy to have Aidan Rowe who’s an Assistant Professor in Visual Communication Design / Interactive New Media at the U of A contact me a couple months ago to let me know that they’d like to visit as they would be here for the New York Design Experience at Parsons conference. As a past student from the U of A it was interesting for me to see what it’s like to be a student these days. I also just wanted to let them know how a designer from Canada can work in New York as there was almost no information about that when I decided I wanted to move. It would also a great opportunity for them to ask me questions too about working. A number of the students have taken it upon themselves to start a blog that I’d recommend checking out at www.slavinmaven.com After talking with for about half an hour we ended up at a pub on Spring St. where we got to chill for a while.
