I recently attended my friend's student design gallery, and was floored by the talent of these 20-year olds.
To the point of fear, in fact. That if this was the future, I'm falling behind.
But, then I started talking to them about their work.
One student had designed a 12x3 flipbook-style calendar. The imagery was amazing.
I opened it up to January, and the calendar snapped back closed because of the size and weight distribution. I asked him how you're supposed to hang it? He said, "Oh, I don't know. I just wanted to do something different."
Another student won an award for her beautifully designed wine bottle, branded "Lonely Housewife".
No one will buy wine that labels them as a stay-at-home boozer. No one will buy a calendar that doesn't work.
These kids are phenomenally talented. I can't do what they can.
But they still need me...for now.
