Milieu

Page history last edited by PBworks 12 years, 8 months ago

The mission of Milieu is to change the discourse about the practice of design.

Milieu was founded by Thomas Jockin in September 2006 when he was a Junior at Parsons The New School for Design. I've been working with Thomas since the founding and have now moved to the position of Special Projects Manager for Milieu. I am employee #1.

 

While Thomas juggles school, work, freelance projects and being Creative Director and Founder, my job is to chime in when appropriate, but mostly to keep an eye out for opportunities that can get him to his goal - to make enough money so that he can minimize the debt he has to carry to pay for design school.

From Milieu 3

"Graphic design" was changed to "Communication Design" by some schools in the 70’s. But the concept has become increasingly fuzzy, as mass document creation is becoming more and more of a reality and our traditonal ways of working are being called into question. In this new world, design professionals need a new way to describe the practice of design.

It might be useful to look at the practice of medicine for some guidance.
