Spencer Inions Marvin Malecha Design Thinking D100 February 19, 2009 Design Contemplation 3 Over the past few class sessions we have been listening to a few of the professors throughout the school of design. My two favorite examples are the two instructors that we listened to on Monday. They both had special aspects that they brought to the design process, but both of them could relate every step of their process back to the basic design process that every single one of us looks to every day for guidance. Our Professor that traveled here from Puerto Rico was a very interesting person. He used the same tactics of observation, documentation, and analysis for his paintings as well as his large sculpture for the centennial celebration of the University of Puerto Rico. He wanted to make something very original for his sculpture but he also wanted to look at past precedents to bring forth ideas that he could use in this new project he was making.

I use this same process through many of my projects especially when I want to look back at past projects I have done for inspiration. He was able to use something that he cherished in his heart to make something that everyone could enjoy and this is in a sentence the goal of designers, to take something they hold dear and share it with the world.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
