AC4D Q&A with Jon Kolko on core77
A Q&A with director Jon Kolko is posted at core77, the premier design magazine and resource for all things progressive and intellectual about our field.
Core77: We are excited about the new school you’ve started, the Austin Center for Design. Can you tell us more about it?Jon Kolko: The Austin Center for Design [AC4D] is a school intended to teach interaction design and social entrepreneurship. I have some lofty goals for the school: to transform society through design and design education. My vision is that the hard work and dedication that designers put into making physical products, digital artifacts, and strategy work for the Fortune 500 can be redirected towards large scale social concerns, and that new business models can be created to make this redirection of talent sustainable for all involved.
