Week 4 - Synthesis

Last week, we worked on our final projects and Karyn Campbell joined us as a guest speaker.


Warm-up exercise

Think back to the day you applied to SVA.

What have you learned since then?

… about design?
… about yourself?

Write a letter to your younger self. Go for 10 minutes.

Guest lecture

Karyn talked about her work on Etsy Studio, shared stories about how she got into design, and went around the room to see what questions the students had. See the class notes for details.


After Karyn left, the students paired up to talk about where they are in the writing process, and to get feedback from their peers.
