Ana Llorente: 2012-13 Faculty Development Grant Report


Excerpt:

Before returning to Amsterdam, 18 years after my first visit, I had forgotten why I do what I do and why I love what I do. I was tired of designing, it felt robotic, prescribed, predictable. ...

Senior Lecturer, Communication Arts and MFA Graphic Design
