Designer, artist, and educator Mitch Goldstein's experience as student and teacher gives guidance and inspiration to help students get the most out of design school.

Life  as a design student is filled with questions. Rochester Institute of  Technology Associate Professor of Design Mitch Goldstein has many  answers, shared in clear, clever, and sage advice that is helpful for  students at any level of their education, as well as anyone thinking  about attending design school and wondering what it's really all about.

For  design students and art professionals, Goldstein is a brilliant  resource for real-world thoughts about design school and creative  practice. Drawing on 16 years of teaching design and his popular "Dear  Design Student" Twitter project, Goldstein explores all aspects of how  to get the most out of the school experience, and beyond as a creative  professional.

From collaboration and critiques to practice and  process, this is an inspiring roadmap for design students as well as a  valuable guide for design professors to help them understand how to  shape curriculum from a student's perspective and better the  collaborative experience.
