Petr van Blokland, whom we have every 2 weeks, is teaching us a horde of skills. Our first class was at his studio in Delft, a really beautiful city just outside Den Haag, I don’t have any pictures of this because it’s a bit weird posting pictures of someone’s house I guess. Last class, however, he came to us in Den Haag and we spoke about the role of sketching in the design process. Picked up a bunch of handy tips on making presentations earlier to avoid catastrophes and getting past the design-block of commencing a project. We also spoke briefly about XML and it’s merits as a higher level method of storing and archiving information so that it’s useful for a mix of applications and workflows. This week we’re due for another lesson, really looking forward to it.
