Speaking of design…

I’ve just updated russdeveaudesign.com, a site where I present some of my original designs in art gallery and residential spaces, discuss some of my design philosophies and present a case study on a one-of-a-kind architectural remodel I managed several years ago.

Parsons School of Design and the concept of new

My New School and Parsons alumni and invitational mailings used to go to my Provincetown P.O. Box, which typically meant I would get them sometime in March. This happened for a good chunk of the last fifteen years.

I was more than fine catching up on Parsons mail once a year or so, but that kind of schedule did prevent me from staying current on key events and activities the school would hold in New York City throughout the year.

I got this invitation in New York last month. It’s the first alumni mailing I’ve received from Parsons since moving back to New York City a couple years ago.

I will likely go to this October event given I appreciate how Parsons seems to be a bit ahead of the curve when it comes to incorporating augmented, mixed and virtual reality into its design curriculum.

I’ve been researching – and working with – some of these next generation design tools from a marketing and technology perspective for quite some time. I’m anxious to see what Parsons is teaching – and what students may be delivering – when it comes to these incredibility interesting and fast-moving initiatives.

I like the design of this semi-glossy mailer. It has a clean look with a bold and simple message and a stylish and fun-to-look-at logo and font.

While the concept of “new” can be overused in parts of the art world, I think the term fits perfectly when it comes to the focus of this event and some of the cutting-edge work Parsons and its faculty and students are know for among art and design communities worldwide. – Russ DeVeau
