St Kilda excursion for Folio Preparation students

Breathing the sea air felt too good... Getting out of the studio spaces and into the fresh air is pure motivation! The students explored Acland and Fitzroy Streets and then headed to the beach for a hearty dose of fish and chips!

This is a topical article from this months Desktop magazine by Simon Ashford - particularly for us as art & design educators. Well worth a read...


...and I quote: "So my advice to any young designer is to play fearlessly and tenaciously. Use Google; but ask it great questions. And question the answers you get. Read design blogs. They are food. Understand where the clichés are. Suspend the voice in your head that evaluates your ideas. Allow them to sit on the page and mingle with the other ideas. Move way beyond your first idea".
