In the 90's though there were no core77 boards to ask professionals though :-)
Haha, thanks Michael.

I have a BFA and manage a gaggle of engineers.

In the end, your degree title, grade point is meaningless. Portfolio gets you the job.
That's what I've been thinking, but had other counselors and such tell me otherwise. Appreciate it.

Portfolio all the way. What schools are you considering?
It's between Georgia Tech(BS) and Rochester Institute of Technology(BFA).

BS vs BFA for Industrial Design

I am deciding between two schools for ID. One offers a BS, which requires taking many academic classes, whereas the other is strictly design focused.

Do employers care about the degree more than the portfolio? Thanks

Make the interaction more of a selling point.
Yes. Exactly. This is a more conceptual project, but Fukasawa has clearly proved that this kind of design can be mass produced.

Re: The Philosophy of Familiarism

First, why is it familiar that you must break something to use it. Yes, "break glass in case of emergency" is a specific action to remove a barrier to access a solution to an urgent situation and uses a hammer shape because everyone knows how to use a hammer. However, we all also know that it's not...

Re: The Philosophy of Familiarism

Do you do it to advance the greater design discourse or is it something that would mostly serve yourself?" I think it can help the greater design community. After learning about this concept in July, I started to work on a coin bank inspired by these kind of familiar actions. I ended up calling my ...

Re: The Philosophy of Familiarism

I don't get it, how is it any different from intuitive design? Intuitive design is something where you could probably figure out, like if there was a tab on something, you could assume that it has a function. Familiarism is taking existing elements such as a chain to a fan to make the product intui...

Re: Hammer Bank

It's not necessarily a new design style, but rather a way of thinking and creating more intuitive products. Nick is pretty pretentious btw Ouch. Have you met Nick? I've met him a few times and did not find him to be pretentious at all. I did find him to be hard working, thoughtful, ambitious and ge...

The Philosophy of Familiarism

My friend Nick Baker just published an article detailing a design philosophy he developed and coined called Familiarism. He defines it as... ...the design philosophy of adding a familiar or subconscious interaction to a new or incongruous object in the effort to create an easier or more unique exper...

Re: Hammer Bank

I think this is honestly pretty pretentious. So he's some guy online who looked at Fukasawas' style really hard and then came up with this new "design style" that he puts next to things like modernism and minimalism? I'm sorry but I think he has no idea about design theory and never really digged i...

I saw this was covered on Yanko! Congrats. http://www.yankodesign.com/2019/01/30/an-incentive-to-save-your-money/ Just curious, did they have you pay a fee to get covered? I sent them a submission and they responded with a bunch of compliments... and also a set of fees to post. Thank you! I did not...

Re: Hammer Bank

Thanks for all the feedback! I was first introduced to the idea of familiarism through Nick Baker. I elaborate a bit more in the Behance project, but essentially its connecting familiar actions with new experiences. The best example i've seen is Naoto Fukasawa's Muji CD player. The device is wall mo...
