it’s been awhile since I’ve launched an update, but an update do I have. Near the top of January, Dillon Webster and I were announced as one of four Professional Development Grant winners in DLR Group. *whistle*
Here’s the deal, we’re super fans of publications. We love design culture, and our goal is to get to know how more studios operate within the #warmred family (one of DLR Group’s 26 locations). This attempt to get to know others’ culture is a publication we’re calling: STEP. As a zine officially in development as a PDG titled ‘Cataloguing Design Culture’- it aims to feature the content that never made the final SD book, propelled the solution for the city design review, or came five iterations before the investor’s package…*you get the idea, right*? Check out a few snippets below:
STEP features the design strategies / conversations directing the work of DLR Group as a global ‘studio’, allowing our strong intranet to continue to showcase the final products. It acts as an open source for us to understand studios on a more personal level as the firm continues to grow. It attempts to be a consistent, reliable resource when other sources of inspiration don’t seem to relate to what it means to be a DLR Group designer.
Our second issue launches mid-march, and we’ll be traveling to LAX, PHX, and CLE to build content and inspire folks to SHARE for #3.
More to come!
