Project Description

Career Pathways for Independent Industrial Designers

Project Abstract

The research survey I have developed will investigate the career development experiences of recent graduates of design schools who have chosen the independent or co-operative route. The survey will be sent to recent attendees of international trade fairs located in Milan, Italy and New York City, with participants located globally. The survey will consist of questions regarding their choice of career path and their experiences achieving their career objectives. Questions will be centered on issues of personal objectives, self-promotion / marketing, practice methodologies and exhibiting experiences at international design fairs.
