To get underway with my thesis project I'm making a selection of 6 past projects. These project should exemplify my design skills, thinking, and process while expressing distinct but relatable areas of interest. Supporting our direction even before a position is staked goes to show the undeniable importance of knowing your base of information is fact. A worthwhile exercise for me while painfully working towards a topic of interest to spent the next 12 months on.
As for the projects chosen to get started, I'll offer up what they are and why I choose them as this should help further map out the terrain I'll immerse myself in.
Live streaming and on-demand open educational website which provided access to an extensive catalog of art and design topic lectures from globally and nationally recognized designers, writers, and business professionals.

It exhibits not only a keens sense of design but the underlying processes, personnel, and strategy being a truly holistic project.
