Darryl currently serves as a Partner and Creative Director at Terrain, a graphic design consultancy based in Singapore.
On the subject of teaching he said, “Since being invited into schools in 1967, I have become more and more aware that the real job of the designer, rather than any technique, is to cultivate: the designer’s real objective is not to build the city but to show how a city may be built, with the city as a tangible form of civilisation.”
Adapted (wholesale) from A lesson with AG Fronzoni. From teaching design to designing lifestyle.
Hardly a good enough excuse, however due to the ever-increasing workload at the studio and the long hours that we have been putting in (to deliver our very best for our clients) I have been unable to keep up with my promise and intention of fully fleshing out a good, well thought-out track for my research interests in the Ulm School, Black Mountain College, design history and education.
On a related note, good news. My partner and I will begin teaching part-time at a local art and design college come January ’13. Finally time to put thought and speech into action, and receive reaction. Perhaps then I may be compelled and motivated to dive into the thick of things properly to keep up with the needs of design teaching and pedagogy… which is a very good thing. Wish me luck future reader! I have every intention of keeping my promise of delivering good articles with a strong angle in the approaching year.
