5TH YEAR UPDATE

This past week 5th year had the honor of spending some time in studio talking with John Rice about where he is now and what he is up to in the work force.  He is currently living in New York working for Barneys installing their window displays.  He is still in search of a home for manufacturing his steam bent chair.  Rice also brought his current work in progress, a moped restoration, which he seems to be very passionate about.  5th year enjoyed seeing where a non-traditional alumni has ventured in the work force.  In 5th year studio they are ramping up in the conceptual design phase, nailing down adjacency diagrams and figuring out forms and function for their products.  In their Contemporary Design Seminar taught by Katrina, they are zooming with alumni discussing topics such as what to expect the first year in the job field, terms of employment and negotiating, networking and entrepreneurships.  They are also working on their concepts for their design videos due during the semester. Thanks to Amanda Sloup for the 5th year update.

The construction process planning seems very similar to portions of our design process!
