marketing and id

hi, i am currently deciding which internship path i want to choose, between area in marketing and ID. will it be beneficial for industrial design to have marketing field as a knowledge and experience? opinions would be helpful.


i would say only do that as a last ditch alternative to an actual ID internship. i had some business and marketing classes in college and i enjoyed marketing, and to understand it would help, in my opinion you need to be thinking about marketing when you design. but i would not reccomend it over a design internship.

i see. i still have dilemmas however. i intend to pursue my masters in design mgmt after acquiring my ID degree, and to go along with the business and management paths. wouldn’t it be more beneficial to have a proper marketing internship in the long run?
