Sharing Skills Through Skillshare

I am proud and yet a little embarrassed to present my first Skillshare online class on the theme of Research, Reading and Writing (the three R’s of design commentary and journalism). See the trailer (and a few personal confessions) here.

The six video (total 30 minute) class involves an assignment, writing a 500 word essay about the design of an object in your general vicinity. Skillshare invited me to proctor your exercise and help prepare you for an initial dive into the cold waters of criticism, commentary and narrative.

I hope you will join me as I share my curious path to becoming a “design writer.” Visit Skillshare here.
