Design critique during COVID-19 confinement.
Apr - May 2020
During these weird times of pandemic and confinement, all schools and most companies had to shut their facilities down, this pushed everyone to switch the way we normally work and to adapt ourselves and our living environment to a study/work/chill one. During the last month, I was invited by three dear friends to lecture and critique their student’s work:
– FARQ UANL‘s (Public, North East México) Óscar González “Design for Health” students (ID, 6th term) reviewing their design concepts for superior limb prosthesis. My dear alma mater.
– ITESM Guadalajara‘s ( Private, West México) Abraham de la Rosa “Experience Design II” students (ID, 6th term) critiquing their sports performance and sleep quality monitoring design concepts. This is clearly one of the top programs in Mexico for Industrial Design.
– DAAP UC‘s (Public, Cincinnati, USA) Juan Antonio Islas’ (ID 5th term) checking out their transportation design concepts, these guys have VR design rooms!
It was quite an interesting experience since I got to see and compare the teaching methods and design approaches from each University. Thank you, Juan, Abraham, and Óscar for your dedication and commitment to your students, for your trust and for letting me share and learn from them. I am always happy to get involved with the academy! (All pictures are posted with permission of the teachers)
