Graduation is only a concept. In real life every day you graduate.

Four hours on the train, one Snook pie and 30 blog posts later… I want to share my experience of visiting Duncan of Jordanstone last week with all of you dear readers.

It all started with Jonathan Baldwin who is one of a kind. If you don’t follow him on twitter. Do it. If you don’t see the value of design. Ask him. The highlight of my trip was spending time with my old tutors ; Hazel, Mike, Jonathan and Fraser. Thank you for believing in me!

Jonathan invited me to talk to all second year design students about my experience of graduating and what I do now. For me the Fulton building held memories of miserable mornings studying engineering there so it was a poignant moment  to see the  room filled with students from textiles, jewellery, graphic design, product design, interactive media design and interior and environmental design.

I’m not going to write about what I talked about because what’s really valuable is how the students have interpreted what I said. All the posts are here ( in no particular order ) I have never had this amount of detailed feedback so thank you!! I am fascinated by how students from different disciplines interpret Service Design and it’s relevance to their craft!

Graduation is only a concept.  In real life every day you graduate.  Graduation is a process that goes on  until the last day of your life.  If you can grasp that, you’ll make a difference = Arie Pencovic
