This video is not just about learning to see but also about the art of teaching. Inge Druckrey is the subject and her teaching is the art. In the process, students have discovered the beauty in everyday objects, lines and typography.
“If you do one thing today, watch this 40-minute crash course in Design Thinking.”
“This film is about patient and dedicated teaching, about learning to look and visualize in order to design, about the importance of drawing. It is one designer’s personal experience of issues that face all designers, expressed with sympathy and encouragement, and illustrated with examples of Inge Druckrey’s own work and that of grateful generations of her students. There are simple phrases that give insights into complex matters, for example that letterforms are ‘memories of motion.’ Above all, it is characteristic of Inge that in this examination of basic principles the word “beautiful” is used several times.”
