Got accepted into CalArts!

It’s real tough deciding between this and Art Center. Art Center’s motion design program is super strong, but they don’t have any dorms/housing. I really, really do love CalArts’s avant-garde approach towards design though, and I would love to be in an open culture that emphasizes experimentation and breaking design rules a la Ed Fella and David Carson. Really, my end goal as a designer is to develop a new aesthetic. I love style, and observing the historical, cultural factors, and attitudes that shape it.

Anonymous said: Do you like minimalistic design?

I used to, especially a lot of swiss style stuff, but now I’m leaning towards the more postmodern styles, such as deconstructivism and new wave typography.
