As a precursor to the final exhibition a group of students were selected by faculty to conceptualize and design the show, as well as to gain the support and trust of their peers in this process.

Visions & Revisions California College of the Arts MFA Design Exhibition 2013 



The design process is one of visions and revisions. Designers begin with a problem: a question that forms out of a subconscious desire, a pressing need, or a mixture of the two. Whether it’s a postcard, a game, a chair, or a new way of thinking, the first iterations rarely solve the problem at hand. So we keep going.

Sketching, writing, reading, talking, playing, making, and collaborating until instinct takes over. The type, the visuals, the interactions, and the experience express and share the vision. Through design, we create an understanding of ourselves and of the world that surrounds us.
