For whatever reason, be it related to BarnRaise work, my summer research project, or even attendance at the Strategy Conference (read: I've met Don Norman!) I've gotten the opportunity to meet a ton of people writing books about design... books that I believe are quite meaningful. I'd like to share the list of books I'm really looking forward to reading (as soon as I have time/as soon as they come in) hopefully by the beginning of school...but more realistically by winter break :) I can't believe the opportunities my education has afforded me, and I really believe that the high tuition price is justified by the experiences, opportunities, and quality of learning I've received thus far at IIT Institute of Design. (No, they did not pay me to say that!) I've been talking to a variety of prospective students, current students, and alumni about everything ID related this summer, and it's really interesting to see different perspectives of the school and what different people value about the education here. Please feel free to ask me any questions about my experience, and check out these books!
My reading list:
And of course, if you haven't read these three books, you should start with these :) They all currently teach at IIT Institute of Design, and I've had the opportunity to meet and take classes with all of them! I'm taking Larry Keeley's class this upcoming semester!
