Earlier this week one of our designers, Erin Hoffman, was invited to talk at the Enmore Design Centre for their quarterly Enmore Talks – a forum that brings together several speakers from the industry to discuss a given topic. This year’s theme was on “Design’s Future”. An ex-student of Enmore, Erin’s work and recent accolades placed her in a good position to inspire and equip the students with the knowledge and know-how to succeed in the transition from college to industry.
Preparing students for the future, she focused on these 3 areas and their implications:
1. RECOGNISE AND CREATE OPPORTUNITIES FOR YOURSELF – IT’S UP TO YOU. 2. KNOW YOUR STUFF – READ, WRITE, FOLLOW, PRACTICE. 3. DON’T LET INEXPERIENCE AND FEAR CAUSE INERTIA – JUST DIVE IN.
