025 - Chris Lyons, Professor at RIT’s School of Design

July 15, 2018

Chris Lyons teaches an important class at RIT each year called Professional Practices, which explains how to job search, apply, present, build a portfolio, land the job, and negotiate salary in the Creative World. The class was a turning point in a massive number of Design Student’s careers (mine included). He is also an award winning illustrator and former Creative Director.

Together, Chris and Mike talk about design education, Chris's new online course he is offering to help recent grads find jobs, and competitiveness.

Mitch is a professor at RIT’s School of Design, Twitter personality, professional designer, RISD graduate, the creator of “Folks” (Font Jokes), and the reason I started this podcast in the first place. He and his partner/wife's work have been recognized widely by the design community, and his silver photogram exploratory series is one of the best things on Instagram (humble opinion).

Together, Mitch and Mike talk about Art School critiques and their value, grading, and the difference between Freshmen and Junior design students.

We also introduce the new Ballpoint Jobs Bulletin. More info on that in the episode.
