Your collegiate Design experience?
There are more than a few professional designers here, some who have been making a living in the field for longer than I have been alive. Have any of you gone to college for a design program related to the career you now practice and felt that you benefited academically from it? What did you learn that has really helped you out since then? Why might you recommend going to school – other than the obvious getting a degree – for something like graphic or web design?
