Welcome to a special episode of Feisworld, where I interview 5 guests! They are Sue Brooks, an art teacher from the Design and Visual Communications Program at Newton North High School (NNHS), and her four graduating seniors : Marisa Ng, Bradley Trepanier, Sophie Tavolieri and Max Hernadez.
The episode features the latest news and development from Sue's program. Marisa, Bradley, Sophie and Max took turns and talked about their fascinating projects in the past two years (2014-2016). From teaching inner city kids (who don't speak much English) on how to design complex systems, to getting Justin Bieber's attention at TD Garden in Boston (a sold-out, 17,000-seat stadium) when the lights went off.
Lessons learned in Design and Visual Communications?
If you are a student, a parent, a relative or a friend who believes in design but not sure how it can be a long term career, this is the episode for you. If you are lucky enough to live in Boston, Newton, I hope you get in touch with Newton North High School to learn more.
This episode is not sponsored by NNHS. Rather it is my personal opinion and observation during the past five years. As a professional in the marketing, design, advertising world, I can say with confidence that design is critical in many areas - visual design, product design, user experience design, illustration, storyboarding and more. If you have questions for either Sue Brooks or myself, please feel free to reach out by leaving a message on this blog, or get in touch with me @feisworld on Facebook.
